Edward Fleming PARMER, Jr., born 16 Jun 1921 in Orange, TX was the youngest of four children born to Edward Fleming PARMER, Sr. and his wife Ethel Emily BROWN.
Fleming was a Nazarene minister with a flair for writing and assembled an unpublished collection of his best works. The following is from a letter he wrote to me in April 2000.

"My school days were completed in Beaumont where I graduated from high school in 1939. During these years I delivered papers for the Beaumont Enterprise and Journal, and clerked in an IGA market, and became active in the Boy Scouts. Later I felt a call to enter the ministry and subsequently enrolled in Bethany Penile College in Bethany Oklahoma. Here I met, a beautiful and very talented sophomore named Jane SHANNON, and soon we were married. This union, as of this date, is just a year shy of 60 years. During World War 11 we returned to Beaumont and I spent most of the war years as a lead man in the Layout department of the Pennsylvania Shipyard. After the war I returned to Oklahoma and enrolled in Central State Teachers College, and became the pastor of the Church of the Nazarene there in Edmond, Oklahoma. I was ordained an elder in 1947 and continued to pastor churches in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas for the next 30 years. After retirement Jane and I bought a motor home and traveled up and down the west coast, and eventually Jane developed a lecture on how to make fancy chocolates in an RV. She gave classes for the international rallies of the Good Sam Club, Coast to Coast RV club and the Family Motor Coach rallies. We spent nearly ten years in the spring and summer traveling from Texas to the Dakotas and Minnesota and all points in-between. Now is retirement for the third time, I spend my time tinkering with my woodworking tools in my garage, and clicking the keyboard on this computer. Jane keeps busy making quilts for all the children, grandchildren, and now into the great grand-children. It is fun and we enjoy the visits of our family who all live within a hundred miles of Sun City. That is, all except our grand daughter who lives in Atlanta. My Parmer heritage is greatly revered, and thru the work of others, I am now finding that there are many other Parmers still around from the line of Grandpa Felix and those before him. Hopefully, someday, I will meet some of them."

Rev Fleming PARMER died 24 Apr 2002 in Newhall. Los Angeles County, California. His soul went to Heaven and body was cremated and his ashes spread across the Pacific Ocean.
