Allan D. Parsons


TURNER – Allan D. Parsons, 46, of Farmington, formerly of Monmouth, died unexpectedly early Thursday morning, July 5, due to injuries sustained while he was attending to a patient in the back of an ambulance en route to the hospital.

He was born, July 1, 1961, in Portsmouth, N.H., a son of John W. and Sally A. (Kneeland) Parsons. He attended Farmington schools graduating from Mt. Blue High School.

He went on to attend the Tri-County Emergency Medical Services Program for Paramedic Education after being self-employed, and at Bath Iron Works. He worked with the Monmouth Rescue, United Ambulance and Med-Care Ambulance services. He also volunteered with the Wales Fire Department.

He was a member of the Monmouth Fish and Game, and Maine Militia. He also served as the scout master for the Boy Scouts in Monmouth, and coached soccer and wrestling. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, his work as an E.M.T. and Paramedic, four-wheeling, motorcycling and SCUBA diving.

He had recently brought his daughter, Amy, back to Maine from North Carolina, and he was so happy to have the time to reconnect with her. His son, Josh, is in the process of joining the Army, and Allan was delighted to see him take positive steps for his future. He has enjoyed spending time riding his ATV with his youngest son, Adam. He was very, very proud of his children. He was a true family man, embracing not only his own children, but his parents, siblings, nieces, nephews and friends. He always had a smile on his face, no matter how difficult a situation he faced, and he always had time to help someone else. He touched many, many people, and will be so terribly missed by everyone. The hole that Allan leaves is enormous, but anyone who ever had an opportunity to know him is a better person for it.

He is survived by his parents, John and Sally Parsons of Farmington; two sons, Joshua Parsons of Farmington, and Adam Parsons of Monmouth; a daughter, Amy Parsons of Monmouth; a brother, Ralph Parsons and his wife, Tammy, of Farmington; two sisters, Patsy Milliken and her husband, Brian, of Falmouth, and Martha McCarthy and her husband, Tim, of Hartland; several nieces, nephews and cousins.
