David “Scott” Parker originally from Sapulpa, Oklahoma made his last sarcastic Facebook comment on May 5, 2019. Scott passed away from a sudden illness in Tullahoma, Tennessee at the age of 48.
He was a Navy veteran and worked many years in support of space and missile defense. Scott was 44 years old when he decided to become “fluff” so he could fully dedicate his time to enjoying island life and commenting on all of his friends’ Facebook posts. His wife Cora Jean Parker was inexplicably supportive of his pursuits and probably the only person on the planet who didn’t harass him on a regular basis to get a job. She’s a saint. His bossy sister and all the haters are now immensely happy that he got to enjoy several years of retirement.
Scott and Cora lived their lives to make each other happy. It was almost annoying how cute they still were after 26 years together.
In addition to Cora, he leaves behind his mother Colleen Wheeler, sister Kim along with Mr. Aloha and Malibu; beloved out-laws: Mary and Mark Johnson; Adalia Arcena; Charles Kratz, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, Navy buddies, Kwaj family, and other close friends from all over the world. Scott was preceded in death by his father, brother, and far too many others.
Scott brought a tremendous amount of joy, laughter and shenanigans to those around him. He was the first to lend a hand, and the first to drink your beer.
Scott was extraordinarily considerate and sensitive, yet he had a sharp wit and irreplaceable sense of humor. Scott would grumble about being the center of attention, but, he would be humbled by the tremendous outpouring of love and support for him and his family.
Instead of flowers, Scott would hope that you will do an unexpected act of kindness for someone. Scott liked to anonymously buy a meal for a military couple, or, cookies for the entire restaurant if he could do it without everyone knowing he was responsible. Please pay it forward.
We will celebrate Scott’s life in the Rocket City on May 18, 2019. See Details on Facebook or contact a family member.
