Ned Parkhouse

Edward (Ned) Parkhouse, who for many years was proprietor of an antiques and classical music store that bore his name on Sag Harbor’s Main Street, died on Wednesday, January 14. He was 85 years old.

Mr. Parkhouse was a familiar sight, making his way down from his home on upper Main Street each morning to his shop in town, where he oversaw a small collection of antique furniture and smaller things and, later, an expansive collection of classical and jazz music CDs and videos.

Mr. Parkhouse, originally from New Orleans, where he attended Tulane University, moved to New York City where he eventually began a career with Doubleday as a copywriter editor. Upon retiring, he moved to Sag Harbor where he opened his shop on Main Street.

A classically trained pianist and composer, Mr. Parkhouse had produced two CDs of his own in the past five years, including “Remembering New Orleans” and “Stillwood.”

He sold his shop this past August after more than two decades.

Mr. Parkhouse was born on May 29, 1923. He died at the Hamptons Center in Southampton. His remains were cremated. A memorial service has not been announced.
