Brother to Robert Parker (Shellie), Cathy Kaselak (Edward), Tony Parker, Janet Wojtala (Don), Joseph Parker. Uncle and friend to many. He loved his family, flea markets, garage sales and motorcycles. If he wasn’t doing one of those things he loved to gamble. He was the best Macgyver. If he couldn’t fix it nobody could. Jon spent many years helping people, working hard and fishing on the lake. His infectious smile, sense of humor and ability to make you laugh will be cherished forever.

    My condolences to the Parker family, I grew up with John and his family in the little village of Brentwood, I lived right around the corner on Cherrywood Circle we went to schools together hung out in the woods down by the river behind their house, he will be missed by many. Rest in peace Jon…………
