Our History

 Parks Superior Sales was born from humble beginnings in 1952 and has continued to grow over 70 years into a state-of-the-art fuenral car dealership and service facility. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are 100% dedicated to the funeral industry and work hard each day to confirm this declaration.

June 9, 1952

Wilbur Parks was keenly focused on bringing success to his small company when he founded Parks Superior Sales in 1952. He ventured out into the world alone working hard to handle all the sales and service responsibilities for his new business. Bob Parks was brought into the business by his father a few years later to increase their level of productivity and customer service. Keeping success and determination in the front of every effort they made, the father and son team spent each day travelling and visiting funeral homes up and down the East Coast. They invested in their passion for creating relationships, building relationships, selling vehicles and providing service one customer at a time.
