George Conyer Parsons
March 6, 1940 – September 5, 2014

George Parsons died September 5, 2014 at UNC Hospital after a brief illness. He was born in Nasheville, Tennessee to Gordon and Boots Parsons who preceded him in death. George was educated in Nasheville and graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in mechanical engineering.

George and Alice McIlvaine were married on March 5, 1966 in High Point, NC after a short courtship. George was then drafted into the U.S. Army, went to Officer Candidate School and would eventually be stationed in Germany, working as a supply officer. After honorably serving for three years, George and Alice returned to the U.S. and had their daughter Rachel born July 6, 1969.

George’s career led the family to live in many states. He worked for Cincinnati Milicron, Bear Manning, NTN Bearing, Branson Ultrasonics and Crest Ultrasonics. While in California, he established his own business from 1987-2007, to provide high precision cleaning systems. He sold the business to the employees and moved to Fearrington in 2007, where George worked as the regional southern sales manager for Crest. After retiring in 2012, he became involved in several clubs and organizations in the area, such as the Kaighn Group, Fearrington Boys Club and the Shared Learning Association of Chapel Hill.

In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by his sister, Gloria Roberts; and his brother, Mack Gordon Parsons. He is survived by his wife, Alice M. Parsons; his daughter, Rachel Klemek; four grandchildren, Peter, Sage, Levi and Deirdre, who all live in California; his aunt, Clara Bedingfield; his brother-in-law, John Roberts; his sister-in-law, Betty Parsons; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Dear Alice,

I am shocked.

God sent a noble angel to give me a hand when I needed it the most.

That was George.

Me and my family will be eternally grateful to you all.

It was an honor to have met him.

Accept our deepest condolences.

Francisco and Family

My condolences to all of George’s family. George was a boss, a friend and an mentor to me throughout all our years in the cleaning industry. He had a kind spirit, a generous heart and always had a story to tell. Time spent with George was always an entertaining education. He will be fondly remembered.

Word sometimes travels slowly even in our age today. I just heard about George’s passing. He was a fine man who was very kind to me and our company when we were just getting started.

It was now several years ago that we had lunch and visited about many things, especially how much he was enjoying being back east.

Our deepest condolences to his family.

Tom Forsythe and the rest of the Kyzen Team

George was a kind man and great mentor to me. His professional drive is unmatched in anyone I have known. He was greatly successful, and took time to advise and encourage the ones around him lucky enough to find his favor. I will truly miss him.
To Alice, my deepest sympathy.
Phillip Sundin
