Harold Dean Parker, born September 18, 1941, lost his battle with cancer on December 7, 2017. He leaves behind his wife, Shirley; son, Mark (Kathy); daughter, Deanna Jernigan (Pat); six loving grandchildren, Justin, Griffin, Ethan, Kinsey, Claire and Carson; two sisters, Martha and Freida; brother, Nelson; and uncle, Jimmy. He was preceded in death by his brother, Joe Parker. He will be deeply missed by his sister-in-law, Joan and many other family members, as well as many dear friends. Services will be held on Friday, December 15, 2017 at 2pm at Shady Grove Methodist Church in Glen Allen. The family will receive friends at the fellowship hall immediately following the service. The family deeply appreciates all the expressions of love and support given by their friends. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to either Shady Grove Methodist Church or Comfort Zone Camp, for grieving children.
Harold was one of my good friends when we were growing up in North Carolina. We shared many experiences because families interacted more in those days. His father J.W. Parker was the leader of our small Presbyterian Chapel and we shared many happy moments especially at Christmastime. I lost touch with Harold some years ago because our paths placed us in distant locations. My deepest condolences go out to the entire family and to his brother Nelson, and to sisters Martha, and Frieda. May God hold you closely during this difficult time. Frank Harrington-Charlotte, NC

My sincere sympathy to Shirley, the children and grandchildren and other family members. Harold and I lost touch as our careers took us in different parts of the country.We worked together at Commercial Union Ins. Co. in loss control when I was in Richmond. He was the consummate professional and great at his profession. His personality was ALWAYS enjoyable and his great smile made you feel comfortable.May God give you all strength to celebrate his life in this time of sorrow.Gary Turner, Atlanta, GA
