Michael J. Parsons

1944 - 2021

Mt. Airy


Michael J. Parsons died peacefully at home on March 31st. He will be sorely missed and remembered for his love of family, reading, travel, community, and especially his smile.

Mike is survived by his wife of nearly 54 years Pamela Ann (Shriner) Parsons; son Thomas Parsons and wife Victoria; daughter Patricia Parsons; grandchildren Shane Parsons of Cocoa Beach, FL, Madeliene and Analiese Parsons of Flowery Branch, GA; sisters Sharon (Don) Seim and Jennifer (Charlie) Cray; brother Tim (Ruthann) Parsons; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Glenna; sister Patricia Cheesman; and brother Kelly Parsons.

Mike was originally from Winchester, Indiana and graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelors of Science Degree. On the flip of a coin, he and his wife moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL where he began his life long career as a Certified Public Accountant. He was in private practice full time in North Palm Beach, FL from 1973 until 2009 when he began the steps towards his retirement.

His professional affiliations included the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountant. He was also a Past President of the Exchange Club of the Northern Palm Beaches and the North Palm Beach/Palm Beach Gardens Jaycees, a member of the Finance Committee of his church, St. Paul of the Cross Catholic Church, and enjoyed giving back to the community.

Mike and Pam moved to Habersham County, Georgia two years ago to be closer to their children and grandchildren and to enjoy a quiet, peaceful retirement. A private memorial will be held at a future date.

Uncle Mike and Aunt Pam supported my mother, my brother and myself when we made the move to Florida in the late 1970s. We lived in the complex right next door to Granny. I have fond memories of family gatherings in the “Rec” room on Joy Rene Lane and out at the Rapids water park. My life was forever changed by our move to Florida and I am thankful for the time spent with family building those early memories. Miss you, Uncle Mike! ❤️

We miss those good old days when we were building up St.Paul's parish and the great times with Fr. Charlie, Pam and Mike and  that group from the 70's and 80's. Wish we could go cruising again too. smile in the photo is how I will always remember Mike. God Bless you Pam.

Lloyd (Chuck) and I where so sorry to hear of Mike's passing but sure he is in a better place.
Chuck first met Mike & Pam when he did their IT & computer work at their accounting firm in Palm Beach Gardens.
Not long after, we became social friends of theirs in Fl & NC with going to restaurant or just visiting & catching up.
We will remember Mike's smile that's in this picture.

Bill and I have so many memories of Mike that it's difficult to be brief!  We took many cruises and wonderful trips with Mike and Pam!  The BEST travel companions!  Our friendship has continued.... This past summer we had many meals together!   We will miss Mike's very dry wit and wonderful low-key personality!  We'll just miss him, period!  No better friend could there be!  
Bill says, "Mike was a brilliant CPA.  We shared many clients,  We did a lot of business together and had a wonderful friendship."
