Thomas E. Parker Jr. passed away peacefully in Woodstock, Georgia on June 10, 2024. He is survived by his daughter, Cynthia Parker Edmondson, her husband John Edmondson, his son Douglas Parker, and his wife Sandra Parker. Thomas served in the United States Navy on the USS Yancey and the USS Rainier.

Thomas enjoyed classic cars, WWII aircraft, and was an avid aviator. Thomas survived the death of his wife Carol Parker (nee Fisher) to whom he was married for more than forty years.
