Kenneth William "Bill" Parent, Sr., age 34 of Millville, passed away suddenly on Sunday, September 26, 2021. Born in Bridgeton and raised in Millville, Bill attended Millville High School. He was a dedicated father, husband, and a hard worker, who had a bright future and career ahead of him. Everyone who knew him loved him. Bill married his longtime love and best friend Melissa in September 2013 and they shared over 14 years together. His devoted wife will miss him dearly. Shooting pool, pitching horseshoes, and playing video games were a few of Bill's favorite pastimes. He also loved the outdoors and fishing along the banks of the Maurice River and on the beach in Fortescue. He was an avid NFL fan and enjoyed rooting for the Tennessee Titans every season. He also loved playing hockey in his teenage years (goalie) and was a lifelong NHL Colorado Avalanche fan. He will be remembered for how his eyes lit up the room, his kindness, and most amazing smile. Most of all, Bill treasured the time that he was able to share with his family, especially with his children. He loved to make his kids laugh, and always looked forward to his special "dates" with his daughter Lizzie. Tickles and wrestling were his specialty. Bill was known for always taking the time to help out any friend or family member that was in need of help, no matter how large the task. Everyone who knew him loved him.
