What a sad day. Those bright eyes full of life extiguished. I am broken hearted to think I won't hear that laugh again. I will remember so many fun times, including Wednesday night club sandwiches. Lol, we went crazy on those! Including hotdog and peanut butter.
Fly with the angles. I will miss you my friend.

Just about everyone you know, at some point, has done or said something that rubbed you the wrong. Whether it was yourself or the other person letting feelings get the best of them. Well Parker was the exception. Just a "Gentle" Man. A truly kind person. Extremely humble. Clayton lost someone Legendary. I Miss ya buddy. Thank You for many memories Hulkster! My condolences to Cheryl (sorry if I spelled that wrong), Amber, and the rest of Parkers loved ones.

Thoughts and prayers to Aarron and his family. We have lost another irreplaceable piece of our community. Aaron always took time to make me smile. We would discuss some fishing and he would always include a complementary word of encouragement. He would complete our visit with his warm smile and raspy laugh. I would continue on my way feeling a little better about my day. Thank you Aaron. RIP.

Parker, you will truly be missed by so many including me. Working with you for a short time at the Vic, you always had a smile and great personality. Before you coming to the Vic, tho, I remember you being a great friend to my late son and even his roommate when you were at Sand Bay Inn. Your kindness was awesome.
My sincere condolences to the entire family. "Go rest high on that mountain, your work here is done" Fly high man...
