Passing of Carl "Chip" Parks - Blue Skies

Recommended Posts

I met Chip at the Jumping Place with Packing Cathy in 2008. Chip loved skydiving and he loved his family. Chip would usually jump between St Mary's, Palatka, and Deland. He was a Vietnam Vet and will be greatly missed. Chip passed of a heart attack on Thursday May 19th in Jacksonville.

You will be greatly missed Chip!!
