Bradley Ross Parrish, 36, of Cumming, Georgia passed away on August 1, 2020. Mr. Parrish was born in Marietta, Ga, on October 11, 1983. He is survived by his parents, Buddy and Becky Parrish of Cumming, Ga., his sister Elizabeth Parrish of Germantown, MD and his brother Beau Parrish of Clearwater, FL.
Brad Parrish was a very popular student at Duluth High School, Duluth Ga. However, at age 18 he was involved in a catastrophic single-car accident. Injuries sustained in that accident left him permanently paralyzed below his waist. Brad maintained a good attitude about his permanent disability but he struggled with the physical and mental challenges that ensued.
Brad loved the Georgia Bulldogs and watched every play on television and some in Sanford Stadium. He loved his pet cat, Joker. His other happy place was when he played Texas Hold’Em with friends. He fulfilled a dream of his when he flew out to Las Vegas and played in a card tournament.
A service in remembrance of Bradley will be held on Saturday, August 22, 2020. Visitation will be at 1 PM with a service to follow at 2 PM in the chapel at McDonald & Son Funeral Home, Cumming, Ga. The family suggests any donations be directed to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation at christopherreeve.org, an organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injury and advancing research and improving the quality of life for those paralyzed.
