ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created in memory of my father, Herbert Parker, 72, born on April 13, 1900 and passed away on December 2, 1972. I will remember him forever, as I am sure, will many others. Although a simple man, he was a memorable one.

You have now had 1965 visitors to your site. Wow. Who knew that 1965 people read about you and you are missed by at least a big part of those visitors?
Van died December 11,2019. You were always so appreciative of him and I know he cared about you.
December is a very bad time for me--your death, Mom's death,Van's death, Dave Baker's death, Juanita died shortly after December, Jan 8th I believe, Paul had his stroke on December 30th --So many sad days to remember.

Value of Herbert's Stories

Shared by Betty Dove on September 17, 2016

No matter what the situation my father could make it into a humorous story. He possessed a natural penchance for story telling and narration.

That makes him sound almost intellectual, which is a hundred per cent wrong idea about him. He was more the Will Rogers of the area, and even more rustic and rural than was Rogers.

His stories have made it possible for me to do much of his family's history. While they were not always pure truth, there always was enough of the unvarnished facts available for me to trace his Parker family roots to the 1500's.

Thank you, Dad for the sharing. I only wish I had known much of what I know now so that I could have shared it with you. You would have loved much  of what I found.
