November 19, 1979- May 7, 2019
John Hubert Park passed away on May 7, 2019 at the age of 39.
A Celebration of Life for “J” Park will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at Eatonton First United Methodist Church from 5-7 p.m. in the gathering room of The Great Hall.
Known as “J” to all his family and friends, he was born on November 19, 1979 at the Baldwin County Hospital in Milledgeville, GA. “J” graduated from Putnam County High School in 1998 and went on to attend Gordon College in Barnesville, GA where he graduated with an Associate Degree. “J” also attended some classes at the University of Georgia. He was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Eatonton. He greatly enjoyed spending time with his family and his friends. He was preceded in death by five of the most important people in his life: his father, Richard Sidney Park Jr. and his grandparents, John and Mary Elizabeth Peck and “Sid” and Francis Park, Sr.
“J” is survived by his mother, Susan Victoria Peck Park and his brother, Richard Sidney Park III.
One of his last great acts of kindness was to become an organ donor through LifeLink of Georgia. This unselfish act will help improve and save other lives throughout our state.
The family thanks everyone for their visits, for the food, but most especially for the prayers that were offered for both “J” and for the entire family. They are also especially grateful to LifeLink of Georgia for their professionalism and kindness during this most difficult process.
The family has asked that those who desire make a donation to the charity of your choice, but they especially recommend LifeLink of Georgia. Their address and telephone number are:
LifeLink of Georgia Atlanta Office, 2875 Northwoods Parkway Norcross, Georgia 30071.
“J.” will be missed by his family and friends but he will continue to live on through those who receive the organs and the tissue that he donated. His life can be understood a little better by using a quote from Jackie Robinson. “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.”
Vining Ivy Hill Chapel was in charge of the arrangements.
