Bradford Eugene Parker was born on February 4, 1957, in Freeport, Texas and went home to be with his Heavenly Father on September 26, 2019, at the age of 62.

Brad was a lifelong resident of Montgomery County, Texas. He spent his childhood years in Willis, graduating from Willis High School in 1975, later attending Sam Houston State University.

Brad worked most of his adult life as a public servant with the Montgomery County Appraisal District for over 31 years as an RPA, serving with the utmost professionalism as Lead Ag and Timber Coordinator. Brad was employed a few years at TDCCJ in Huntsville. Brad also spent time as an Oilfield Mud Engineer for Magabar Dresser at an earlier point in his life.

Brad had two dear treasures in his life, his beautiful loving wife of 19 years, Delcy Danubis Silva Parker and adoring son Bradford Alberto. He enjoyed spending as much time with them as possible being a loving and supportive husband and father. A little insight on the story book romance that resulted in a journey of love and happiness for Brad and Danubis. Imagine if you will, a man who is traveling abroad to Venezuela to visit family of a dear friend. Brad had spent all of his adult life as a single man, never thinking in his mind, this trip would change his life forever. Attending a Christmas party with new found friends, he was walking thru the crowd of strangers; someone caught his eye, a bright light in a dark room. Long dark hair, bronze skin and a beautiful smile, dressed in white pants and a blue flowered blouse, he asked her to dance with the help of his friends , from this time forward Brad and Danubis voyage began, keep this in mind Brad spoke no Spanish and Danubis spoke no English, but the fire was lit. No matter the barriers they faced, language , culture, or age, nothing would deter their union. They were married a few months later, living and loving for 19 years, a beautiful son, Bradford Alberto was born from this marriage; Brad found true love and happiness having Danubis and Bradford as his world. Brad never met a stranger and was always ready to lend a hand with a big smile and open heart, a wonderful man with truly not a mean bone in his body. Brad really enjoyed the great outdoors.

Brad was preceded in death by his sweet mother, Barbara Jean Rorex Parker. He is survived by his loving wife Delcy Danubis Silva Parker; his cherished son, Bradford Alberto Parker; his doting father, Vernon Eugene Parker; his loving siblings, Bobby Parker, Gina Evans, Charla Shaw, Dawn Dietz ; and many loved ones, including Aunts, Uncles, nephews, nieces, cousins, brother-in-laws and special friends that are considered family.

My sweet Uncle Brad.... I will miss you every day. I have so many wonderful memories with you that I will forever cherish. Some of my earliest memories in my life are with him at the farm in Willis. He would always take such good care of us and make sure we had the greatest time just being kids. He would tell us scary stories and let us make fun of him just to have a good laugh. When Bradford was little, they would take me along on their family vacations to Florida, San Antonio and the river, I loved those trips so much with them. . As I got older, I would still go over to uncle brads just to spend time with him at his house. He would always have some interesting gossip for me to listen to and would always give me words of encouragement when I was worried about school or anything in life. I grew to respect uncle brad for the friend he was to everyone he knew and the amazing person he was in everyone’s life. The last three weeks of his life he never once pulled the “poor me” card.
I love you so much , uncle brad. Thank you for all of the amazing hugs you would give and if I forgot you made sure to say “no love for me, baby” and make me feel super bad for forgetting, I am so grateful for those extra hugs now. You will always be in my heart and I will live life the way you taught me.

DEAREST BRADLEY EUGENE PARKER

Hey, Brad. No one at MCAD ever called you by your full name except me that I am aware of. We used to have some gut-wrenching laughs over that. I was so blessed to both have had your friendship and the pleasure of working with you for 21 years.
I really, really don't like losing my good friends, but I do realize that sometimes they have to go away.
Well, you went away, too. But let me just tell you that you were a friend who was true. Knowing you enriched my life because of your kindness, your generosity, your smile and so many other qualities. The whole Planet Earth benefited from your existence.
So I won't say good-bye. I will just say so-long for now. And sure, I'm very sad, but I will carry you in my heart always and never forget.
I am praying for strength and peace to shine on your family.
I am writing this in first person because I needed to feel I am talking TO you, and not just ABOUT you. I could write a book about the good times we had, BUT I WON'T. So...
SOAR, MY FRIEND, SOAR!!!
Love ya,
AGNES TIMS

My favorite memories of Brad are when Gina & my kids were very young and the Parker Family always hosted New Years Eve and 4th of July parties at their family's farm in Willis. Brad always went above & beyond to make these events special for all ages! The kids loved the hay rides with Brad at the helm on the tractor, he was always so sweet & fun, great with the kids and adults alike!
He worked hard on the fireworks show that wrapped up a great day of celebrating and creating wonderful memories for us all! His smile was infectious and his heart & soul inspirational. He touched many people from all walks of life and he will truly be missed.

My favorite memories with Brad and the Parker family were always at the Farm. I had lived on that land as a very young girl and loved walking to the lake and watching sunsets. My earliest memory of meeting Brad was when my Dad took me back to see the Farm in the early '90's. As soon as we parked in front of the big house I got out of the car (umbrella in hand) and just started walking down the long dirt road. Unknowing that Brad was watching, I was just turning in circles as the memories came flashing back. Brad thought I was lost! After spending a couple hours visiting with Barbara & Brad and reconnecting I found myself escaping the big city and spending many weekends (for many years) with the family. Brad taught me what country really was. From going to my first deer lease, riding a four wheeler, riding a horse, building a shed, making Christmas wood art, enjoying bonfires & star-gazing...among other things. I've never known a family that has stayed in their home town so long with such deep roots and lifelong friendships. After three decades of knowing Brad it didn't matter how far I moved or how long I was away, Brad made sure to never lose contact. I’m grateful I got to see him in his final days and feel the love he has in his heart and see his unwavering positive attitude…and that smile…an unforgettable smile. Thank you for all the memories that will live on as long as my mind will allow. My love and peace I give to Brad and my family. I can’t wait to see you all when I’m back in Texas very soon. XOXO Melissa Anderson Fox

Brad, you were so much more than just an Uncle to me. You were a role model, a mentor, and a friend. I'll forever miss sitting around the house with you talking about anything under the sun and, of course, always giving you a hard time over one thing or another!

Life on Earth is temporary and fragile, but I rest assured knowing you and Grammy are waiting for us in God's Kingdom. Until we see again...I love you, Jacob.
