Terry served with the RPSO for twenty-eight years. He had a natural instinct for helping people. This natural instinct is what made him a great police officer. Terry Was an auxiliary police officer for Mangham Police department for two years.
He was a top-notch electrician, computer expert and carpenter. He owned and operated Parrish Electronics and T&T Electric. Terry was always willing to lend a hand with anything that needed to be done.
To say Tammy was the love and light of his life is an understatement. They enjoyed their lives together simply, nothing extravagant just enjoying each other to the fullest.
The love he had for his mother, Shirley was that special bond that only is shared by a mother and son.
The unconditional love that he had for Logan was the love that could only be shared by a Dad and daughter.
He embraced his “new found” grandchildren and loved them as his own. He never referred to Kristi and Will as stepchildren; he embraced them as his own.
Last but not least is Maverick and Bunny they will miss him dearly.
Terry will be missed but his legacy remains alive.
Survivors include his wife, Tammy Parrish of Bastrop; mother, Shirley Parrish of Rayville; children, Logan Marie Parrish of Rayville, Kristina Liles and husband, Michael of Winnsboro, and William Clay and wife, Jordan of Rayville; and his grandchildren, Lilly Mae Liles, Trace Liles, Levi Liles, and Augustus Liles.
