Steven Jack Parr, 65, of League City, Texas lost his battle with cancer at home the evening of Thursday, February 2, 2017. Steven was born in Cherokee, Oklahoma to Jack and Carol Parr on May 23, 1951. He attended school in Cherokee and graduated from CHS in 1969. While in high school he participated and excelled in track and basketball. He attended Oklahoma State University. While there, he became involved in student government politics and served as senator. Upon graduation, Steve accepted a job with Stran Steel in Houston. After two years there, he accepted a job with Aramco Oil Company as a liaison in different parts of the company. He spent seven years living and working in Saudi Arabia. He later returned to Houston and continued working with Aramco for a number of years. He remained working in the oil industry, but changed jobs and went to work for Chevron until his death.

Steven was a very insightful man who helped and worked with others. He was active in his church working with returning servicemen who were dealing with the complexities of their new life. Steven had the unique opportunity to travel the world and see many different sights because of his work.
