Elton Parker

Elton Parker was born March 25, 1920 south of Lonoke and died August 31. He started his journey as a hero by being the first born of seven children. He and his siblings eventually made their home south of Carlisle where they engaged in farming.

His most noticeable heroism occurred on the beaches of Normandy in his European tour under General Patton as a sergeant in the U.S. Army 741st Tank Battalion in World War II where he defended his country and kept us all from harm’s way both born and unborn. He received the Bronze Star and a Purple Heart. He continued his armed forces affiliation through his involvement in the American Legion, serving in state and national capacities, as the Southeast Vice Commander. He gave many youth opportunities to find their leadership skills in American Legion programs.

He was a dedicated public servant in Lonoke County Quorum Court for 32 years. He was a hero for the small person often defending them at a cost to himself and his popularity. His character and intellect showed brightly in this capacity. The major reason he chose this service was because of poor road conditions and his desire to improve conditions in his community and not just sit back and complain even though the road to his house was not paved until after he was no longer a member of the court and the members voted to have it paved to honor his service.
His spirit of heroism shone on in other community services too numerous to name which include the Lions Club President, the Lonoke County Council on Aging, Master Mason and worthy Patron for Eastern Star. He was responsible in some part for bringing a senior center to the Carlisle area stating “Well they have one in that town so why not in Carlisle.” He was loved by many in the community and was often known to stop and have a “talk with me.”

He was a life long member of Hamilton United Methodist Church. While he may not have always worn his religion on his sleeve or expounded it loudly as from a pulpit he chose a quiet way to demonstrate the qualities of Christ in his everyday treatment of man. He made sure his church, and its members were cared for as he cared for them deeply. In this, he was a quiet hero.

He was a hero to his family in many ways. He was preceded in death by his wife of 45 years, Agnes Kring Parker, and three brothers, Otis, Alfred and Bernie Parker.

Survivors include his wife and sweetheart, Geneva Parker. She has been the hero in his life giving him care and comfort beyond compare during his time of illness. His sons, Lee (Janice), Charles (Tammy) and his daughters, Barbara (Sonny) Bowen and Beverly (Phillip) Stringfellow; a brother, Bob Parker; two sisters, Kathrine Bailey and Dorothy Elmore; grandchildren, Jake Bowden, Scott, Darla and Richey Stuckey, C.J., Tommy, and Bailey Parker, and eight great-grandchildren. His children remember him for helping calm their fears, showing them the ocean from the top of his shoulders for the first time and letting them do things their mother wouldn’t.

His stepchildren, LaRonda (Jack) Cheney and their son Clay, Mike Millwood and son Jeremy, daughter, Tabitha, Ruby (Lloyd) Busch and children, Saundra and Brian also survive him.

He will be greatly missed by many for his many acts of heroism and for his role as friend, father and husband.

Funeral services were 2:00 p.m. Friday at Hamilton Methodist Church with intermenty in Carlisle Cemetery by Boyd Funeral Home, Lonoke. Memorials may be made to the building fund at Hamilton Methodist Church, 301 Hamilton Loop Road, Carlisle, AR 72024.
