Leroy Lowell Parke was a medical doctor and gave this account of himself:
"I was 3 months old when South Dakota was made a state, 3 Nov 1889, along with North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. I grew up in South Dakota. I went to this little country school, graduated, and went to Canton High School, from there entered the Medical School of the University of Illinois, 1909-1913. In the fall of 1910, my roommate and I attended the Methodist church reception for students. There we both met our future wives. His played the church organ and mine sang in the choir."

In 1964, Dr. Parke, aged 75, was in his 52nd year of praticing medicine, in Canton, South Dakota. He and his wife, Naomi celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1964.
