Ricard Allen Parker was born March 14,1937 in Pontiac, Michigan to Edward and Dorothy (Poke) Parker. He departed from this life on March 16, 2023, at home in Thayer, MO from a long illness of COPD.

Richard was proceeded in death by both of his parents, his son Donnie, and his daughter Daisy, 4 of his sisters and 2 bothers. Richard is survived by his wife Rhoda, daughters, Sara Knollenberg and Merna (Matthew son-in-law) Kincaid, son Ricky Parker, and son Eddie Parker, along with several grandchildren and great grandchildren, and 1 sister.

Richard was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and wonderful friend. He was a retired Marine where he served his country for 20 years and a business man owning several businesses in California before retiring in Missouri. If you knew Richard, you knew where he stood and his great love for the Lord, one of the first questions he would ask upon meeting you would be... “How is your spiritual life? Do you know the Lord as your personal Savior?” He wanted everyone to know how wonderful God is and that you don't have to go to hell, that he wanted to see you in heaven one day.

Ricard will be greatly missed on this earth, but we know he is rejoicing in heaven with his Lord and Savior! So in true Richard Parker fashion ask yourself, “How is your spiritual Life? Do you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior?”

At his request he was cremated, and a graveside service will be held March 25, 2023 at the Burnt School House cemetery in Norfork, AR, at 1:00 p.m.
