CHRISTOPHER KEITH PARKER
Sept. 2, 1981 – March 25, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved only son, husband and friend, Christopher Keith Parker (known to his many friends as Parker) on Monday, March 25th, 2013 at Langley Memorial Hospital after a two?year battle with cancer.
Chris, today our sorrow is overwhelming, but we do not mourn without hope. We pray that we might know the peace of God’s presence and comfort as much as you do right now.
Chris was an amazing person, his zest for life was infectious and he lived every moment to its fullest. He fought such a brave battle with cancer. He always had a positive attitude and never let anything get him down. He was passionate about hockey and his Vancouver Canucks. He shared a passion for racecars with many friends and was often found on the racetrack with his headphones and mike. Chris and Lisa enjoyed boating together with her family. Chris loved to be on the golf course and shared this passion with friends and family. Chris loved everything life had to offer.
Lisa was the love of Chris’s life, his best friend and soul mate. They shared 5 wonderful years together as a couple but friends for 12. She was truly Chris’s rock and she was beside him every step of the way through his fight.
Time didn’t allow Chris and Lisa to have children of their own so their little dog Zoey was truly his baby.
Chris’s favorite saying was “get er done” and he had such a gift for applying a personal touch to whatever he was involved in. Chris touched the lives of so many people in his short time and will be dearly missed.
He is survived by his Mother Linda Zimbalatti, 2nd Dad Joe Zimbalatti, Father Fudd Parker, Wife Lisa Butler and all her family. His Nanny & Grandad Carol & Al Turriff, Grandma Grace Parker, Uncle Lindsay (Jean), Aunt Susan (Gary) Uncles Cal & Daryle ,
Auntie Jill (2nd Mom) cousins (Alex, Ryan, Jeff, Courtnee, Marty, Karen, Elizabeth and Carol?Ann) , niece and nephew Kylie (Chris’s Angel) and Kayden and all his extended family in Toronto.
A Celebration of Life in Chris’s honour will be held in the near future.
In Lieu of flowers, if so desired, donations to the Cancer Society or Diabetes Society in Chris’s memory would be appreciated.
