    I worked with Don Parham in Atoka, Ok. in 1946 after returning from WW11. We both worked at the Pix Theatre,and Don liked to go down on the stage before show time and give a really good impersonation of Al Joslin. I had known Don and his family in Atoka all our lives. He was always a lot of fun to be with. Homer (Pug) Hawlins

    I think it is safe to say that Doc touched more lives than he knew. I learned more from him about than I could ever learn from a book and his family is in my prayers. Southeastern and Atoka has lost one of the greats...RIP Doc

    Doc was a champion in every way. One of the really good guys. He will be greatly missed. Sympathy to his family and to the Southeastern family.
