The San Antonio legal community is reeling after news prominent attorney Jimmy Parks Jr. unexpectedly died Sunday.
The accomplished defense lawyer was also a doting husband, father
and grandfather. Married to his high-school sweetheart 43 years,
friends say there was nothing more important to Parks than his family.
His two children say he was a generous man who led by example.
Grandchildren remember him as a devoted fan, who never missed a game.
At 61, Parks showed no sign of slowing down. Just last week
Thursday, he announced his intent to run for Congress. Family members
say it was just another way the man who lived by the "Golden Rule"
planned to give back to the community he loved.
The medical examiner determined Parks died from a heart condition known as dialated cardio myopathy.
A viewing for Parks will take place Friday from 6 - 8 p.m. at
Porter Loring North Chapel on Loop 1604. Services will follow Saturday
at 11 a.m. at the Community Bible Church's main sanctuary, also on Loop

LONGVIEW, Texas (AP) -- An East Texas law officer and a driver being chased by police have been hurt as gunfire broke out during the pursuit.
Longview police say Monday night's incident led to the officer and the male suspect being transported to a hospital. Police on Tuesday didn't immediately say whether anyone had been shot or provide further details on injuries.
Officer Debra Stiles has said shots were fired when police were forced to use road spikes to stop the fleeing man's vehicle. Stiles could not immediately confirm whether the suspect or police opened fire.
Authorities have not said why the vehicle was being pursued.
Longview is 120 miles east of Dallas.
