Family Man &
Who Cares About
Get to know Walt Parcell
After being raised in Heber City, I made my life in Utah County as a hard-working entrepreneur who has built several successful businesses in Utah County. I deeply care about Utah County. However, more than my businesses and even more than Utah County, my real joy in life is my family. My wife Carol Parcell and I have been married for over 42 years. We have 5 married adult children who have given me 12 grandchildren who call me “Pops.” Most of the members of my family either grew up in Utah County or met their spouses here:
Heather and Casey Nelson
Tyler and Jenica Parcell
Drew and Rachel Parcell
Lindsay and Jay Riding
Katelin and Cameron Rock
I love our communities in Utah County and want to make sure and keep it safe and a great place to raise families. My love of people is seen by all those who know me. I have served hundreds of youth in various programs. I would appreciate your vote and promise to do what I feel is honest and correct!
A True Utahn
In the 42 years we have spent living in Utah County, I have loved every minute of it and cherish the neighbors and friends I have met along the way. After graduating from Wasatch High School, I attended BYU. I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Edinburgh Scotland Mission from 1974 to 1976. Upon returning, I studied Business Management at BYU.
In 1978, I earned my insurance license and built a chain of local insurance agencies named Advance Insurance into one of the largest “personal lines insurance agencies” in the state of Utah. I continue to hold Lutc1, Lutc2 and Lutc 3 insurance certificates.
Another business of mine has been Parcell Construction, a developer and general contractor building countless homes, office buildings, retail strip malls, and many other edifices, adding as much as $100 million in Utah growth. Additionally, I have a real estate license under which I have facilitated multiple millions of dollars of transactions. My attention to detail and precision lend themselves well to this industry.
This deep business experience of over 40 years has taught me how to build my own businesses, systems, and teams. I know what it takes to balance budgets while taking measured risks for the betterment of all involved. I feel these business skills and my generally compromising and can-do nature give me an edge over others running for the office I seek. I will do things on-time and within budget.
