Lawrence Parsons  "Tex"
Lawrence (Tex) Parsons, 71, died on September 10, at his home in Fairfax, VT.  Lawrence was born April 27, 1952 in Amarillo, TX.  Given his birthplace he quickly aquired the nick name of “Tex” a name that suited him well and the name by which he would forever be known.  Tex leaves his brother Charles and his wife Gail of Swanzey, NH, sister Sue of Conway, SC, brother David and his wife Linda of Columbia, SC, a nephew, Drew Parsons of Manchester, NH, a niece, Kate Coyle, her husband Gary and their sons, Ryatt and Raider of Columbia, SC.  Tex also leaves many good friends and acquaintances.  Tex is predeceased by his parents Larry and Carry Parsons formerly of Fairfax and a nephew, Christopher Parsons, formerly of Clifton Park, NY.

Tex grew up in Fairfax and graduated from BFA, Fairfax in 1970.  After school he went to work in the construction trade working for J&L Foundations, Griswold, and Ireland.  Former co-workers said that they enjoyed working next to Tex.  Tex was also a dedicated lifetime member of the Fairfax Fire Department and reached the rank of Captain.

While he enjoyed anything outdoors, he loved to fish, and was skilled with a bow, his true passion was anything to do with guns.  He loved to hunt and was an expert Skeet shooter winning or placing in many contests.  Tex was a life-time member of the Underhill Rod and Gun Club.

Always a lover of dogs and owning many through his life, Tex could often be seen driving around accompanied by his furry companions.  Tex was a loner who enjoyed small groups of friends and avoided formal gatherings.  It is with this in mind that honoring Tex’s wishes, there will be no formal services.  A very informal “celebration of life” may be held in the near future.
