Tommy H. Parker Sr.

November 24, 1946 — June 27, 2024

Tommy Henry Parker Sr, 77, of Dayton, Ohio passed away on June 27, 2024, surrounded by his wife and family. He was born November 24, 1946 to the late Henry Clark and Stella Marie Parker.

He is also preceded in death by his brothers Jim Parker, sister-in-law Peggy; Doc Parker, sister-in-law Pat, and Jerry Parker.

Tommy was a 1965 graduate of Stivers High School. On November 19, 1966, he married his high school sweetheart, Alfreda Parker. They welcomed three children, Tommy Parker Jr, Kelly Tool (Lewis) and Geri Harlow (Andrew); grandchildren, Carilla Parker (Eric), Kelsey Parker (Alton), Eric and Autum Tool, Jeremiah, Jonathan and Joshua Harlow; great-grandchildren, Sylas, Liam, Nolan and Owen.

He retired from General Motors after 33 1/2 years of dedicated employment. He was an avid fan of the Cincinnati Bengals and Cincinnati Reds. Who-Dey! He enjoyed fishing, hunting, maintaining the yard and diddle-daddling in his garage. In his younger years, he frequented Tennessee with friends to go four wheeling. If no where to be found outside, he may have been found inside napping to an old western.

In addition to his wife, children and all of his grandchildren, his memory will also be cherished by Sis and Rosie, both whom helped the family graciously in his last years of life. He is also survived by his best furry pal, Weasley; sisters, Barbara and Carolyn. Along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
 
Deeply missed he will be, but in those moments, we’ll look up at the sky - whether it’s in the stars, or in the warmth of the sunshine, knowing he’s sending hugs from above.

Family will receive guests from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm on Monday, July 15, 2024 at Newcomer Funeral Home, Kettering Chapel (3940 Kettering Blvd. Kettering, OH 45439).  A funeral service will begin at 11:00 am on Tuesday, July 16th at the funeral home.  Interment will follow the service at Woodland Cemetery, Dayton.
