On Saturday, April 13, 2019, Stephen Wayne Parker, husband, father, son, brother and “Grumps,” passed away in the town of May at the age of 51 years.
Memorial service for Stephen will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Fannin Terrace Baptist Church in Midland. The service will be under the direction of Davis-Moore Funeral Home in Brownwood.
Stephen was born in Hamlin to Kenneth and Kathye Parker on Dec. 16, 1967. Stephen was the oldest of the Parker kids, who include Jay and Daniel. Stephen went to Snyder High School, where he graduated in 1986. Stephen was a multi-sport athlete, but his love was baseball. After graduating from Snyder High School, he married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Stacy Dunk. After marrying Stacy, they moved to San Angelo, where Stephen attended Angelo State University. After leaving San Angelo, Stacy and Stephen moved to Lubbock, where he began his career in the wireless industry. As Stephen progressed through his career, he moved to Midland in 2001 and spent 20-plus years as an operations manager in the wireless industry.
Stephen loved his family and close friends more than life itself. His grandchildren were truly the light of his eyes and were his best friends. Stephen was as hardworking and loyal as they came, but most importantly, was a man of very high integrity. Stephen enjoyed hunting, fishing, football, the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys. Those who knew Stephen, knew there was nothing more enjoyable than a barbecue pit, a good game and being surrounded by the ones he loved.
Stephen will be forever remembered by his wife and best friend, Stacy, and their precious children, his daughter, Lori Cast, son-in-law, Michael Cast, and his son, Matthew Parker, and daughter-in-law, Chelsi Parker; his parents, Kenneth and Kathye Parker; his brothers, Daniel and Jay Parker; his father-in-law, David Dunk, and his mother-in-law, Judy Dunk; his sister-in-law, Jodie Sorrells, and his brother-in-law, Kyle Sorrells; five grandchildren, Kennedy Cast, Michael “Tripp” Cast III, Beckett Cast, Beau Parker and Cutter Parker; his “adopted sons,” Jeremy and Jordan Partlow; and countless uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Home Hospice of Midland and Kindred Hospice of Brownwood.
