John H. Parker, affectionately known as, “Bill,” was born on May 13, 1943 to the proud parents of Leroy and Althea Parker in Keller, Virginia.

Parker; grandparents, Major and Lucille Parker.

“Bill” spent many summers working beside his brothers at Roosevelt Raceway until he graduated from Mary N. Smith High School in Accomac, Virginia in 1962. He continued his career as a groomer and horse trainer until the track’s closure. “Bill’s” hands were never idle! He worked at General Instrument as a watershed technician and devoted thirty years of service to United Parcel Service. Sports were always a passion for “,”Bill whether he was a participant or an avid observer. If he was watching bowling on TV “Bill” would invite you to join him. One of the few pleasures he enjoyed in life was working on his property and enjoying the fruits of his labor.

“Bill” loved being involved with his grandchildren and family gatherings were a fond source of entertainment. His beautiful smile epitomized his heart. He was known for welcoming and sharing his home with others.

“Bill” leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife, Jean and their daughter Kirbe, as well as his children, Michelle, Tamara, John, Rodney, Kevin, Valdine, and Verena; sixteen grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; brothers, Major (Helen) of Westbury, NY and Freddie (Scarlett) Parker of Bronx, NY and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

    Notes
    In light of the evolving situation with COVID-19 virus, we are making adjustments to adapt to the current health emergency. In order to reduce the spread of the virus in our community, we are limiting the public’s access to our facility. We will continue to serve our families with the utmost dignity, as well as maintain the safety guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
    We have received notification of the Governor’s Executive Order Sixth Amended Number Sixty-Seven (2020) and Order of Public Health Emergency Seven, which imposes the following restriction:
    Effective Midnight, Sunday, November 15, 2020, all public and private in person gatherings of 25 or more individuals are prohibited. This includes outdoor and indoor settings.
    In accordance with the Governor's Executive Order, Cooper & Humbles Funeral Co., Inc. will comply and hold all services private until further notice. We will not have any public viewings. In an effort to accommodate family and friends, we are posting photos and the funeral/graveside service video of your loved ones on their respective Book of Memory pages on our website, www.cooperandhumbles.com. This will allow you to have a lasting memory picture and attend the service virtually. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time and as soon as this matter is resolved, we will resume our normal practices.
