David A. Parker

June 01, 1925 - March 02, 2013


David A. Parker, age 87, passed into the arms of his Savior Jesus Christ on January 30,
2013 surrounded by his children. Dave was born June 1, 1925 to Charles and Dorothy
Parker. Dave was preceded in death by his parents, wife Beverly; daughter in-law
Marilyn Parker; grandson Jason Parker; and brothers Richard and Philip Parker.
Dave is survived by sons, Michael of Everson, Tim and wife Martha of Auburn, Ted and
wife Julie of Sedro Wooley, Jerry and wife Becky of Mt. Vernon; daughter Necia Amos of
Lynden; sisters Shirley and husband Charles Monthy of Tacoma, Philis and husband
Paul Beran of Juneau, Alaska; sister in-laws, Garnet (Beyer) Parker of Laurel, Ruby
(Olsen) Parker of Lynden, Hazel (Sturgis) OmIi of Puyallup and Evelyn (Omli) Bauer of
Bellingham; 12 grandchildren; 23 great grandchildren; and 1 great-great grandchild.
Dave along with his wife Beverly farmed on 50 acres on the Ten Mile Road. It was here
where Dave found his greatest pleasure being a dairy farmer, working the land and
raising his family. Dave was a simple yet compassionate man of few words. He loved
his family, tried to always find the good in others. Dave had an open door policy, there
was always room for one more at the dinner table. He was hard working and welcomed
his children’s friends into his home. Dave didn’t say much but he was a listener and
when he did speak it was after some thought.
Dave attributed his long and happy life to his good German genes his ability to praise
God not just in times of need and sorrow but also during good and plentiful times.
Dave broke his hip in November of 2012 and his health steadily declined. He loved his
family well and they will miss him and his stories. We are very thankful for the loving staff at the Christian Health Care Center for the exceptional care rendered to our father. Dad’s absence will be felt heavily, however we know he is no longer in pain and we take heart in knowing he is with those who passed before him. As per his wishes, no services will be held at this time. There will be a celebration of his life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made in Dave’s name to the Christian Health Care Center in Lynden.

Please view the memorial and sign the online guest book.

  1. I am so sorry to the family for the loss of this loving man. He will be missed by all that knew him. May you find comfort from a scripture at John 5:28, 29. To see our loved ones again would be so wonderful and would be a dream come true. May you hold this hope in your hearts. Your family will be in my prayers.

    Dad, you will be missed by all of us children, your smile and your ability to to look for the good in everyone. Your love of all of us even though sometimes we didn’t always do or say the right things but you would still love us. I will miss the my drives with you though the country side and all our outings together. Rest in Peace Dad and we know that we all will be with you again when our time comes. Give Marilyn, Mom, Jason, Grandpa, Grandma, Phil and Bud a big hug for me Love and God Bless Your Son Mike

  3. Oh Dad, how I miss you. Helping the brothers clean and pack up the house brought a flood of memories from childhood rushing back. How lucky we all were to have had auch a wonderful childhood. Thank you for teaching us to pray and love well. Life on the farm was sometimes hard, but it created a steong work ethic in all of us kids. I have been sooooo blessed to have been loved by by parents who sacrificed so we kids could have. Tell Mom how much I loved her and may both of you know that I will keep you in my heart forever. Your little Daddys girl…Necia

    Please accept my sympathy to the loving Sons,Famil;y and Friends in the painful loss of your dear David. He was such a kindhearted man and will be sorely missed by all who knew,respected and loved him. Hopefully you will be comforted by the Bible Verses that follow: Psalms36:7 “HOW PRECIOUS YOUR LOVING-KINDNESS IS O GOD! AND IN THE SHADOW OF YOUR WINGS,THE SONS OF MEN THEMSELVES TAKE REFUGE,FOR WITH YOU IS THE SOURCE OF LIFE”
