Obituary and Service Information for Richard Lance Parsons
|Parsons, Richard Lance|
R. Lance Parsons, 75, of St. Louis ventured into the great beyond on April 25, 2019. He was born into a family of educators and amateur philosophers in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania in 1943. Graduating from Vanderbilt University, Lance returned to Pennsylvania where he married, taught High School and worked on mastering the autoharp. An avid chess player and extremely poor singer, Lance engaged in various other eclectic and agreeable pursuits, ultimately relocating to St. Louis and marrying his beloved wife, Diane. He leaves behind a good mensch of a son, Adam; a saint of a daughter, Amy; four grandchildren of much talent and estimable promise and a history of poorly-told jokes.
