George Parsons

GEORGE PARSONS has been married to wife, Kathy, for 37 years, whom he met in grad school. They enjoy traveling, especially on Viking cruises. They have three sons, Blake (34) in Bellingham, Ross (31) in Brooklyn, and Jonathan (27) in nearby Portland. No grandkids yet. They also have a troublesome terrier named Henry.

George received a BA in Anthropology and History from UC Santa Barbara ’72 that prepared him for motorcycle travels, bartending, elevator construction, a Central America odyssey and real estate before obtaining an MBA in ’81 from Northern Arizona University. He enjoyed a 30-year high tech career that included stints in operations management and sales at several companies, including Intel and Oracle. Corporate moves spanned both coasts before settling in Southwest Washington for the past 20 years.

Hobbies include cycling, guitar, camping and golf. Now he is semi-retired, and works in real estate. His greatest accomplishment has been a 1600 mile, 30 day solo bicycle adventure from Bellingham, WA to Skagway, AK in 2014. He also raised over $48,000 for the Relay for Life through his Clark County Benign Band.

Favorite memories of Burbank High include Madrigal Choir, Brigadoon, and fantastic teachers such as Regnal Hall, William Hill, Glenna Thompson, and Marjorie Imbach.

      Wow, I’m glad I checked my bio to see your comment. Yes, I’d love to have an excuse to visit Hawaii. Motorcycles gave way to guitars and cycling after our 2nd kid was born. Too many close calls! Aloha!
