Gone Fishing — Calvin Parker

As listeners know, UFO abductee Calvin appeared twice on The Paracast over the years:

September 2, 2018 — Calvin Parker

October 6, 2019 — Calvin Parker

It is with sadness that I report on his death after a long illness.

His publisher, Philip Mantle, of Flying Disk Press, has provided the following details:

Calvin 3.jpgIt is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Calvin Parker passed away on August 24th at 8.15 am. He died peacefully at home surrounded by his wife Waynette and other loved ones. Calvin was diagnosed with terminal kidney cancer some time back so we knew his time was limited but it was still bad news when it arrived. A private memorial service was held at the Guardian Angels Funeral Home on September 2nd. At the request of Calvin’s family, I have not released anything in public until now.

For those who don’t know who Calvin Parker is, he was one of the two men involved in the 1973 alien abduction case on the Pascagoula River, Mississippi on the evening of October 11th, 1973. You can find the full information on these events at: Calvin Parker's Official Website

Calvin and I had become close friends over these last five years and we talked regularly on skype. He was a charming, intelligent man with a great sense of humour. I’m not ashamed to admit that I cried when I was informed by his wife Waynette that he had died. Thankfully I spoke with him the week before and told him that I loved and respected him. He already knew that anyway. I also told him that he had more friends around the world than he could ever imagine. His personality, his story and his two books touched a great many people and also helped him get rid of some of the trauma that he had carried since that night in 1973.

When I began working with Calvin I agreed that I would help him cement his legacy. That legacy was to tell his story in full and help to document it for posterity so that future generations will have this information to study and maybe help understand what happened to him and Charles Hickson that night. Calvin was simply looking for answers, some of which he found, others that he didn’t.

More Information Request

Even though Calvin Parker is no longer with us the search for more information continues. I know there are people out there who have more information on this encounter case and I would like to ask them to release it now before it’s too late. Please do the right thing and let me have it. It can be sent to me in total confidence if required. Don’t hesitate, just send it now.

There may well also be other eyewitnesses to the UFO events in 1973. We have already interviewed a number of people, some in complete confidence at their request, but many others who have also allowed us to use their real names. If you are one of those witnesses please do not hesitate to contact me at the earliest opportunity and in complete confidence if required. Time is against us so please do not hesitate.

This is very sad.
As most of you will be aware I didn't believe in the whole nuts and bolts UFO thing but Calvin Parkers story did ring true and it did make me think.
R.I.P Calvin.
 
The fact that, although not widely reported at the time, others saw a UFO in the area, is significant.

We'll be covering a graphic novel of the Pascagoula episode next week.
