Matthew Craig Parsons was born June 12, 1978, to Steve and Connie Parsons. He has spent his short life of 43 years growing up, working, and enjoying Kingston, Tennessee. He loved his hometown. After graduating from Roane County High in 1996 Matt attended ETSU and received a bachelor’s degree in Marketing but always knew he wanted to return home. He loved boating, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and skateboarding. Hanging out on Watts Bar Lake with hometown friends was his passion. Matt was an employee of Duncan Automotive and Property Manager of Downtown Properties in Roane County.
Matt also known as “Positive Parsons” is now enjoying some great skateboard, snowboard, and wakeboard competitions in his heavenly home and we know the lakes of heaven are way more beautiful than our own Watts Bar Lake.
