Parley spent his childhood and high school years in a very rural farming/ranching/mining community in southeastern Arizona. His mother’s family has roots with humble farming/ranching interests in that region, dating back to the early 1900’s. The area is high desert, situated along the Gila River, which affords excellent soils for farming opportunities. This time of growing up for Parley found summer mornings and early afternoon’s working for various farmers in the area – hoeing weeds out of cotton fields or bucking hay. Late afternoons and evenings were spent helping dad and mom repair fence, shoveling/hauling gravel to cover caliche, or working silt fences to preserve precious topsoil from washouts caused by seasonal monsoon or sporadic heavy rains. These activities helped instill a love of nature and of the land into his heart.
Parley’s greatest love, support and friend is his wife Lisa. Together they find great enjoyment spending time outdoors with their 5 children and 2 grandchildren (with the 3rd on the way).
Professionally, Parley has worked at the same steel fabrication and installation company for his entire career, beginning in 1991. Early years were spent as a craft worker, leading to positions as foreman, supervisor and then estimating/management responsibilities. In 2000, Parley and TWA member Rex Webb purchased the company from the original founder. Rex retired in 2018, Parley continues as CEO.
Parley has a deep respect for the steward-minded leadership and membership of the Texas Wildlife Association, and is enjoying his 9th year as a member.
