With broken hearts and the knowledge that our Heavenly Father will give us strength to endure, the family of Graham Christian Parks asks for your prayers in the loss of our much-loved Graham.
On Sunday, April 2, 2023, Graham Christian Parks, resident of Drummonds, TN, tragically passed away due to injuries sustained in a car accident at the young age of 14.

Burial will follow in People's Cemetery. Visitation will be from 5 PM to 8 PM Wednesday, April 12 and will continue from 9 AM to Service time Thursday, April 13 at The Ripley Funeral Home.
Graham was born September 22, 2008 in New Albany and was the son of Tristin Parks of Ripley and the late Kayla Orman Coleman. An 8th grader at Brighton Middle School, Graham was considered smart, kind and well mannered and was also looking forward to football tryouts. A true "history buff", Graham enjoyed reading and learning about the Civil War, both World Wars and anything related to the military. A sweet, goofy, smiling, joking 14 year-old, Graham will be missed by all that knew and loved him.
Memories will continued to be shared by a sister, Jadhlin Davis of Drummonds, four brothers, Bentley and Gannon Rouse, both of Jackson City, MO, Adyen Gross of Ripley and Jedichi Davis of Drummonds, grandparents, Tanja & Robert Jackson of Drummonds, Gloria & David Reaves, Sammy Anthony, all of Ripley and Gary Orman of Walnut, a host of aunts, uncles and cousins and his pet hamster, "Sylvester".
The Ripley Funeral Home invites you to share memories.
