  1. Ann, Sean, Brian, Jennifer & Kate:

    So sorry for your loss. Tom was a man who always had a smile on his face & made everyone feel as if they were part of the family. My thoughts & prayers are with each of you.

  2. Rest in peace Tom, you will be greatly missed by your dear family and many friends. I feel blessed to have known you and my life is richer because of your friendship.

  3. “Those we love must someday pass
    beyond our present sight…
    Must leave us and the world we know without their radiant light.
    But we know that like a candle
    their lovely light will shine
    To brighten up another place
    more perfect… more divine.
    And in the realm of Heaven
    where they shine so warm
    and bright.
    Our loved ones live forevermore
    in God ’s eternal light.”

    May the peace of our loving creator which is beyond our limited understanding be with the family of Thomas Lee Parker who now holds the blessed hand of God.

  9. Tommy and Ann helped to fill a void in our early life in Tulsa. We played bridge when we were newly married and our childeren where young. Tommy always had a joke to tell and Ann was always the perfect hostess. It was fun. But company transfers and busy careers took us in different directions. Last time we talked was when we both living in Houston, before career changes took us in different directions again. Our only reget is we did not get to see more of both of you. Love Marc and Becky

  18. Parker Family,
    I am really sorry that I had to miss the funeral services today. I tried making it but ended up stranded on the road after losing control of my car. After walking around for a while, I eventually got help and was able to make it back home. Know that my heart was with you! Carolyn Austin

  21. Dear Parker Family,

    Mark and I were planning on attending the memorial this week but unfortunately could not get down Rock Springs Road with all the ice.

    Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you now.

    Mr. Parker was a wonderful man and we feel fortunate to have had the chance to meet him and enjoy Elliott’s T-Ball games with him.

    God Bless Your Family.

  22. What an amazing guy. I had the pleasure of working with him and he could always make me laguh and forget about all the seriousness of work. He will be truly missed. The Parker family is in my thoughts and prayers. May God surround you with love.

He had the spirit of life in him that made everybody feel comfortable around him and would do anything to help you. What a special person who will be greatly missed. God Bless Tom

  25. I appreciate all the kind words from friends and family who left comments. By now, this site is probably not visited much, as it has been 6 months since my dad’s passing. I can just now find the words and emotional strength to make my post, and it may fall on deaf “ears”, but it’s something I need to do.

    As I peruse the entries of others commemorating my dad, I have seen several sentiments about the joy and humor that my father brought to the lives of others. And these kind words are all true. Thank you all. I think I can speak for my siblings and my mother when I say that we too experienced many laughs as a result of my dad’s dry humor and quick wit. In these past few months I have caught myself and others mimicking the one-liners and quips my dad used to deploy to bring smiles to our faces. To my family, I invoke two: please raise your palms and woh oh oh oh, woh oh oh oh both things that made us giggle uncontrollably in church I might add.

    But if I had one word to describe what my dad meant to me, and how I hope others would remember him; that word would be “selfless.” My lasting impression he made on me was through his hard work and sacrifice. He always gave of himself so that he could provide and bring happiness to his family. He did his best to treat my mother like a queen. He always found a way to present opportunity to his children; many of which he did not have available to himself. But to those that did not know him like I did or my other immediate family members, just know that he loved unconditionally, and his happiness came through the happiness of others, not himself.

    My dad wasn’t perfect. And in spite of that, I am nowhere near the man that he was with regards to my character. But I can tell you, thanks to him I know what great looks like, and I will spend the rest of my life trying to live up to his standard.

    Again, many thanks and prayers to each of you for the love and support you shared with our family in the past months. It has truly been appreciated.

    And to Dad, thank you…for everything. I love you, and I miss you.
