He was the product of a modest and meager upbringing. He was born at the start of the Great Depression and lost his father at a young age. This prompted him to learn hard work as a child by working at the local sawmill in Arkansas to provide for himself and his siblings. Mr. Parker went on to serve with the 397th Military Police during WWII in General Patton’s Regiment in 1946. He was also a pioneer in the world of transportation with 5 registered patents for advancing the technological protocols of the tractor trailer industry. He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Frances Parker; parents, Jack Parker and Tommie Young; sisters, Jackie and Jane, and brother, Holbert. Mr. Parker is survived by his son, Britt (Jody) Parker; grandchildren, Sara Parker (Ryan) Howell, Rachel Parker (Kyle) Schmidtke, and Paxton Britton (Riley) Parker, and great-granddaughters, Annabelle, Caroline, and Cleo.
