Mr. Delmas Parmer

Mr. Delmas Parmer, age 64 of Roosterville, Georgia passed away on Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at the Lake
Regional Hospital in Osage Beach, Missouri.
Mr. Parmer was born in Franklin, Georgia on April 29, 1952, the son of Margaret Montgomery Parmer and Bill
Parmer.  He was a Baptist by faith.  From a very early age it was clear that young Delmas would be a person who
loved life, and enjoyed sharing his fun loving spirit with others.  His love for the out of doors was always obvious, and
riding on the back of one of his much loved horses out on the trail was where he was most at home.  He was always
on hand to help others. It was this devotion to the care and safety of others that led him to become a volunteer fire
fighter.  When Heard County developed a professional fire department he became a member of the staff, and later
attended school to become an EMT, and a Paramedic.  His strong physical strength and expert swimming skills led
him to become a rescue diver.  After many years he decided to change professions and became a professional truck
driver.  He was employed by J-Par Trucking where he was named the 2015 Truck Driver of the Year.  The main joy in
his life, were his two girls, and their families.  They were the center of everything that was precious to him.  His
grandchildren were especially dear to him, and he enjoyed every minute spent with them.  His love of life and the joy
he gave to other will long be remembered.
He is survived by his two girls, Renae Taylor (Troy) of Franklin, GA., and Stephanie Shorter (Steve) of Roopville,
GA.; parents, Margaret and Bill Parmer of Roosterville, GA; two brothers, and four grandchildren, Emma and Beth
Taylor of Franklin, GA., and Ray and Michael Shorter of Roosterville, GA.
