Parke’s family will be receiving friends from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 19, 2020 at Parke’s home, 10849 35th Street SW, Dickinson, ND. All of Parke’s services will take place outside and adhere to North Dakota Department of health safety guidelines.

On August 14, 2020 Parke William Little was called home to be with Father God. He unexpectedly succumbed to a massive heart attack.

Parke was born to Edward and Virginia Little on July 6, 1945 in Los Angeles, California. He was born first, the older brother to his twin, Frank. He grew up loving the outdoors; hunting and fishing with family. He was a bit of an adrenaline junkie and loved to push the limit. He was known in his younger years to be an avid CRAZY water skier who would be so daring as to ski barefoot and ski with his daughter Shanon on his shoulders. Parke was and is always a warrior. He started his military career at the ripe old age of 18. He enlisted with the United States Marine Corp. He was recognized for his abilities that were engrained in him as a young child; his adventurous spirit and his love of country. After two back to back tours in Vietnam with the Marines, he joined the Army Reserves and again found himself serving his country in Iraq. His desire to serve didn’t end there, he served the communities he lived in as a police officer. In 1985, Parke met and married Linda Shepard in a whirlwind six week courtship. They began their life together with her son, Justin, in Longmont, Colorado. In 2001, Parke and Linda moved to his paradise on earth, Dickinson, ND. Parke found all his passions here. Between his hobbies, friends and all the organizations he was a part of, Parke was truly at peace. He could be found at the gunshop, working the land or at home eating a good steak and salad. Parke was a teacher of life. He was always there to share wisdom, his experiences, and was known as someone you can count on. He was firmly rooted in his beliefs, his love of country, and the family he built. Parke will always be remembered as a strong, honorable and loving man. He was a provider of comfort, protection, and unconditional love. He was the most loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother. He will be sorely missed and in our hearts forever.

Parke is survived by his loving wife Linda; son, Justin (Stephanie) Hunter and their son Easton, CO; daughter, Shanon Little, CA; brother, Frank (Anita van Tilburg) Little, TX; He was preceded by both of his parents, Edward and Virginia; and grandson, Wyatt.

In Lieu of flowers, Parke’s family suggests donations to the Parke Little Memorial Fund that will be established to encourage youth hunting in our region.

My sincere condolences to Parke's family and friends. I had the privilege to hunt pheasants with Parke surrounded by other Vietnam combat veterans over the years. God has called him home, and it is a great comfort to know I will see him again.
Semper Fi,
