William O. Parkomaki

CONNEAUT — William O. Parkomaki, age 69, of Conneaut, Ohio, died at his home of complications on Monday morning, April 8, 2013.

Born June 24, 1943, in Conneaut, he was the son of Donald W. and Ina A. (Argelander) Parkomaki. Bill graduated from Rowe High School in 1961 where he earned two scholastic letters and five varsity letters, two in football and three in baseball.

A month after graduation, he was hired by Reliance Electric as a mechanical draftsman in the Navy Sales Order Group. His seven years there enabled him to save enough money to finance his college education at Kent State University. After a year and a half of architecture at KSU, he changed programs and earned a Bachelor of Arts with an English major and Psychology minor, graduating in 1967. Four days after receiving his B.A., he went to Conneaut Area Schools where his teaching career spanned five decades, 1967 – 2004.

He is survived by his son, William M. (Shara) Parkomaki and their children, Ian and Jenna Parkomaki; a daughter, Kiersten (Donald) Alexander and their children, Lauren, Garrett and Griffin Alexander; an older sister, Susan (George) Schroeder of Hiram, Ohio; and a younger brother, Donald J. “Jack” Parkomaki of Conneaut.

There will be no calling hours or memorial service. Interment will be in Greenlawn Memory Gardens beside his parents.

Contributions may be made to the East Conneaut Firefighters Association.

The MARCY FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION CENTER, 208 Liberty St., Conneaut, Ohio, has charge of arrangements. Please sign the guestbook at www.marcyfuneralhome.com and starbeacon.com.
