December 10, 1931 – October 17, 2018
On October 17, 2018 George L. Parman made his journey to heaven while at home with his two daughters by his side. George was born on December 10, 1931 to Lawrence C. Parman and Jewelle C. Finley in Cederville, CA. He was a rancher in Nevada, ranching with his parents and later with his wife and children. George loved running wild horses, hunting, and trapping. If someone would mention a mustang you could see his blue eyes sparkle. He’d get all excited and say, ‘Where are they and let’s go catch them.’ This was how he got his nickname ‘Mustang George’. George was a colorful man, a legend, and a walking history book. He lived life as he believed and as an advocate for the Nevada ranchers often locking horns with the Government on issues of wild horses and BLM permits. Even though he was home schooled, George briefly attended the Seventh Day Advent School in Fallon, graduating from Fallon High School, which he was extremely proud of. Later in life he took several correspondence courses and acquired a flare for writing. One would see his publications in the Range Magazine, as well as several newspapers.
In the early 50’s George married S. Ruth Weaver and they were blessed with two baby girls, Linda L. Dempsey (1952) and Georgie S. Brown (1954). In 1954 he moved his family to Tonopah, Nevada to the Hunts Canyon Ranch where he resided for eighteen years. In 1963-64 George moved to the Flynn Ranch in the north end of Diamond Valley remaining as partners with his mother, Jewelle. While at the Flynn Ranch George was blessed with another daughter Robin R. Parman (1967).
After retiring in the 80’s he moved to Eureka, Nevada, but had to have a bigger place so purchased a 1 section of ground in Diamond Valley, where he resided until his passing. George was preceded in death by his parents Lawrence C. and Jewelle C. Parman; wife, Ruth Parman; sister, Christeen (Glenn) Hurt; brother, Joe (Betty) Parman and daughter, Georgie S. Brown.
He is survived by daughter Linda L (G. Ernie) Dempsey and Robin R. Evans; grandchildren, Jake (Ali) Brown; P. Daniel Brown, Caleb Evans, Jessie Evans, Sam Evans, and Rachael (Jamison) Evans; great grandchildren, which he was very proud of, Catarina Brown, Shauna Brown, Trypp Brown, Sadie Brown, Maycie Brown, Hank Brown and Hudson Evans.
Rest in Peace George we will miss your stores, love, and support.
A celebration of life will be held in Eureka on November 17, 2018, 2:00 PM. at the Urban Cowboy. George will be laid to rest at the Austin Cemetery next to his wife Ruth and 2nd daughter Georgie.
