Obituary


Kevin D. Parks, 19, of Uniontown, PA passed away suddenly on June 14th, 2021. He was born September 5, 2001 in Uniontown, PA. He is the son of Demetrius Parks Sr and Mykeia Epps Foreman.

From an early age, Kevin had a zest for life and wanted to accomplish things quickly. He excelled in sports and received high praise from his football coach and teammates as a stellar linebacker. Kevin used his intelligence to graduate from school early, earning his GED in 2018. From there he attended welding classes where he became a certified welder. Kevin loved working on vehicles and getting to know all the inner workings of what made a car run. He wanted to learn everything he could about vehicles and would take on any new challenge with glee. Kevin lived a well-rounded life. Many in the community adored his soft-spoken voice, gentle manners, and his willingness to help anyone at any time. Kevin was always concerned about the wellbeing of his elders. Kevin was very passionate about family and kept them close to his heart. He loved being a father to his children and spending as much time as possible with them. He also had dreams of one day running a dog kennel as he adored animals as well. Kevin had an infectious smile and an enjoyable personality that drew people to him. Kevin was loved and valued by those who knew him, and he will be sorely missed.

Kevin is survived by his mother, Mykeia, father, Demetrius; his children: Ja’sir Jordan, Layla Parks, Kareem Parks, and Kali Parks; his brothers: Jamal Patton, Demetrius Parks Jr, Howard Foster Jr, and Elijah Bagby; his sisters: JaOnna Patton, Lauren Clarke, Jailyn Epps, Kydra Newsome, Lesha Parks, and Mariya Parks; grandparents: Joycelyn Parks and Bobby Parks; stepfather, Eugene Foreman; fiancé, Yazmin Jordan, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
