Doyle Parmer


Doyle Parmer, 82, a life-long resident of the McDonald community in Bradley County, passed away at his home Monday, Oct. 26, 2020.

He was the son of the late James and Mildred Bancroft Parmer.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Leroy Parmer; his sister, Imogene Parmer; and several aunts and uncles.

Doyle was retired from Bradley Central High School as a driver’s education instructor and coach. Before teaching at Bradley Central he taught at North Lee Elementary School, where he coached as well.

He was caretaker of Lee Cemetery in McDonald.

Doyle is survived by numerous cousins and friends, who will miss him dearly.

A Remembrance of Life service will be held graveside Saturday, Oct. 31, 2020, at 2 p.m., at Lee Cemetery in McDonald with the Rev. Colby Goins officiating. Family and friends will serve as casket bearers.

Out of an abundance of caution, due to COVID-19 concerns, there will not be a public visitation.
