Obituary of Parks Majors

Please share a memory of Parks to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Parks Harrison Majors, 72, of Fountain Inn, SC, died April 28, 2023, after a brave bout with brain cancer. Parks was born in Atlanta, GA, on July 27, 1950, to Frank and Daphne Majors. He graduated from the Lovett School in Atlanta and attended the University of the South and Georgia State University. Parks was born into a family of printers and followed that path, eventually working at Hart Graphics in Simpsonville. In 1997, he changed professions to follow his passion of caring for people by running the kitchen of the newly started Fountainside Eldercare Inn in Fountain Inn. Ultimately, he became the director of food services for Carolina Center For Behavioral Health in 2004 where he remained until his recent retirement. Parks is survived by his wife, Linda Neve Huellmantel Majors, and the family they formed: his son, Alexander Parks Majors of Greenville; Tucker Huellmantel of Charleston; Alex Huellmantel of Mauldin, and granddaughters Zial and Serenity Heullemantel, and Sierra and Zoe Nolau. He is additionally survived by his sister, Carol Majors of Raleigh, NC, and his niece Laura Tucker; his father-in-law, LaVerne Neve; sister-in-law, Susie Neve; and brother-in-law, Ron Neve. He was predeceased by Lisa Grant Majors, Alexander’s mother, in 2008. Parks will be remembered for connecting with family and friends through the sharing of food and good wine at his home and church, Holy Cross of Simpsonville. He was involved in the Cursillo meetings, prison ministry, music ministry, the yearly Seder Supper, and other gatherings. He loved deeply and loyally. A Celebration of Life for Parks will be held at 5:30 Friday, May 5, at Holy Cross Episcopal in Simpsonville. A reception will immediately follow at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to World Central Kitchen or local food banks.
