PARCHMAN, Christopher Lee

July 5, 1968 – November 25, 2021

We, the family of Chris Parchman are sad to share the news of his passing. Chris was born and raised in Swift Current. He attended St. Pat’s, Beatty and graduated from Swift Current Comprehensive High School. Chris worked in the auto industry, spending many years at Standard Motors. He also did auto detailing and yard care, travelling many miles on the roads around Swift Current to his various clients. Chris started to lose his vision in 2004 due to diabetic retinopathy. This led him down a new road. Chris moved to Regina in 2006 and graduated from the University of Regina with a Bachelor of Social Work degree in 2011. He has been working as an assistive technology specialist with Vision Loss Rehabilitation Canada, formerly CNIB. Chris faced many health issues later in life and overcame many obstacles to live independently. His stubbornness and determination served him well and we were very proud and in awe of his perseverance. Chris was predeceased by his parents, Elmer and Rose Parchman; extended family, friends, and his precious guide dog, Nicole, in 2020. He is survived by his partner, Carolynne Unteriner; sisters, Barb Parchman, Leanne (Dennis) Cymbalisty; uncles, Carl Parchman and Ray Bourlon; aunts, Lorraine Blakely and Carol Parchman; several cousins; and many friends. A memorial gathering will be held at Lac Pelletier, Saskatchewan on June 25, 2022. Memorial Gathering will be held at Lac Pelletier Community Hall, Lac Pelletier Regional Park, SK on Saturday, June 25, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. Lunch and cash bar to follow.
