Obituary

Gilbert Stanley Parker was born on March 3, 1938 and entered into rest on Monday, September 28, 2020 at the age of 82. He was the son of the late John Henry Parker and Sadie Billings White Parker. He was born in Foxwells, VA and a native of White Stone VA.

He was a godly Christian man and a long time member of Saint Helen Episcopal Church, Beaufort SC. He was a good man who loved his friends and neighbors, extending his name where needed. He was "A Fisherman of the Sea" and loved boats. He strongly believed in paying his bills promptly. Gilbert served 2 years in the Army Engineers and worked 29 years with Gulf/Chevron. He retired from Texaco Oil Company at the early age of 55. He did so in order to raise his 2 sons (10 and 12 years old) who lost their mother at the very young age of 47.

He is preceded in death by his 1st wife and mother of his 2 sons, Jean Vanlandingham Parker, his 2nd wife, Wilhelmina Ramney Parker, and his only sibling, John Henry, Jr. He leaves behind his 2 beloved sons, David Bryan and Ryan Keith (Jamie) and his cherished niece, Cathy Parker, as well as Patsy Bickley, his loving friend and companion of 9 years.

The family will receive friends 4-6 p. m. Friday, October 2, 2020 at Currie Funeral Home, Kilmarnock, Va. A celebration of his life will be held 2:00 p. m. Saturday, October 3, 2020 at the funeral home followed by graveside service at Historic Christ Church.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Foundation of Historic Christ Church, P. O. Box 24, Irvington, VA in his memory.
