Sen. Parley Hellewell was born in Burley, Idaho, on February 1, 1950, to James and Helen Hellewell. He grew up in Heyburn, Idaho, the 4th of 13 children, and spent his younger years working on the family farm. He graduated from Minico High School in 1968.

After an LDS Church mission to Germany, Parley attended Utah Technical College, now Utah Valley State College, in Orem, where he graduated with a degree in Business Management and Marketing.

Upon graduation, Parley spent eight years as a department manager and buyer for Taylor's Department Store in Provo.

In 1979, Parley became self-employed in property management. Through the years, he has started or bought and sold several businesses. At the present time, he owns and operates a major heating, cooling, and plumbing business in Utah County.

In June of 1970, Parley married Marilynn Barlow, also from Heyburn, Idaho. They have spent the last 33 years living in the Provo-Orem area and are the parents of four children--Lance, Kristi, Jaden, and Katie. The three older children are married, and Parley and Marilynn now have seven grandchildren.

In 1998, Parley successfully ran for the Utah State Senate in District 15. Re-elected in 2002, he is the chair of the Business Labor and the Economic Development committee and also serves on the Natural Resources appropriation sub-committee and the Rules committee.
