Trent Parker passed away March 16, 2018 in Tyler, Texas. He was born May 9, 1944 in Denver, Colorado to Tim and Delores (Dee) Parker. He was the oldest of their three children. Trent enjoyed the outdoors, gardening, playing guitar and most of all spending time with his family. He had a special place in his heart for animals, especially those who had been abused or abandoned. He was preceded in death by his father Tim, the love of his life, wife Jean and his step-son James Powell. He is survived by his mother, Delores (Dee) Parker, brother Chris Parker and wife Charlene and sister Judy Parker Bragg and husband Eddie. He leaves three grieving children, son Jason Parker and wife Emily, daughter Staci Parker Smith and son Jade Parker. He would tell you that he had the most amazing grandchildren and that he was beyond blessed with them. Grandchildren include Kenneth (Tyler) Parker, Madison Parker, Timothy Smith and Noah Parker. Trent has a very large family, but he was especially close to his cousin, Mary Parker Griggs, his cousin who helped him through the difficult time after Jean’s passing. His children will be forever grateful for your love and care. Special thank you to his friend, Peggy O’Rourke for all the trips to Dallas and adventures at Buccee’s, he really looked forward to yall’s adventures. Trent will be missed deeply by many, but he will never be forgotten. Until we meet again, we love you!
