MANILA, Philippines — Seven-time PBA best import Bobby Parks Sr. died Saturday afternoon, according to San Miguel Corp. Sports Director Noli Eala.

Parks, 51, who has been battling throat cancer, died at the San Juan de Dios Hospital, Eala said.

He was supposed to take the head coaching duties of San Miguel Beermen in the Asean Basketball League (ABL) for the second straight season but had to take a leave of absence for medical reasons.

Parks, whose son Ray is a two-time UAAP MVP for the National University Bulldogs, steered the Beermen to a finals appearance last season.

    RIP Bobby Parks Sr, buti na lang nag-iwan ng remembrance sa katauhan ni Bobby Ray Parks Jr. ng NU bulldogs..

    Just remembered when I was in H.S. and was in Makati med for my checkup. I saw whom I presume is Parks Jr. as a baby for a checkup. Did not even bother to ask the mother if that is Bobby Parks’ son as the baby was literally a baby version of Bobby Parks. Hope Ray Parks Jr could read this. You really were a carbon copy of your dad when you were a baby.
