On Tuesday, July 14, 2021, angels were singing but hearts were broken as Jamie Parks was ushered into heaven.
Jamie was born on June 1st, 1961 in Murray, KY, and grew up in Charlotte, NC until moving to the beach in the mid-'80s.
He had a wonderful childhood living on Malta Place and a love for drag racing he learned as a teen, spending nearly every weekend at the track with his mentor Sammy.
After moving to the beach, cooking quickly began a passion for Jamie. And following in his dad's footsteps he was known for his mouth-watering BBQ.
Jamie cooked countless pounds of BBQ for benefits, holidays, parties, catering, competitions, and even his nephew's band events.
If you had ever met Jamie, you were sure to remember him. He had a heart of gold and would literally give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it.
He leaves behind his mom Pat Parks, sister & brother in law Jana & Steve Whitley, nephews Cory & Darin (and niece in love Briana). Waiting to meet him in heaven was his "Pop" Jim Parks and beloved fur baby "Lucy". Jamie also leaves behind Aunts and cousins as well as countless friends.
The family will receive friends at Burroughs Funeral Home, 3558 Old Kings Hwy, Murrells Inlet, SC 29576, on Saturday, July 17, 2021 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM with a service following at 5:00 PM.
Burroughs Funeral Home (843-651-1440) of Murrells Inlet is assisting the family.
