Carleton Parsons

March 13, 1952 — August 29, 2022

Albemarle

Carleton (Carl) Miner Parsons of Albemarle passed away August 29th at his home.

Carl loved:
Horses, motorcycles, playing guitar, music, art, boating and fishing.
Learning and working with his father on cars and heavy equipment.  Then working  under him building GM plants in Michigan.
Teaching his siblings to ride horses, motorcycles and jumping off the barn.
Teaching and playing chess with his children until they started beating him.  Teaching them to ride motorcycles and horses.
Spending time at his mom and dads, especially during family gatherings, with his children.
Going on long horse rides for days in the Uwharries.

Carl was predeceased by his father, Jason Miner Parsons; mother, Peggy Anne Parsons; son, Ray William Parsons; Granddaughter, Victoria Faith Lawson; sister, Sheila Jane Parson; brother, Rick Jason Parsons.

Carl was survived by his sister, Sandra (Sandy) Parson; brother in law, Jay Menefee; niece, Jamie Watson of the home. Sons; Jase Miner Parsons, Brian Michael Lawson and daughter in law, Jessica Lynn Lawson; sister, Vera Darlene Smith and brother in law, AV Smith. Grandchildren;  Ray, Samuel, Jahaziel, Chasen, Ruth, Charity, Hannah, Camryn and Rose.
Nieces and nephews;  Heather, Alex and Sara. Great nieces and nephews; Sierra, Austin, Shawna, Axel and Hazel.

We realize this looks like a family tree but this is the family Carl loved, even though after losing his son, Ray, he did not always know how to show it.

One of the last things he asked us was "did I teach you well"?  We told him you taught us well.

An outdoor visitation will be at 1 pm on Saturday, September 10th, followed by a graveside service at 2 pm at Prospect Baptist Church on River Road in Montgomery County.
