1933 - 2019

John Quinn Parker
Nov. 6, 1933 - May 6, 2019

Quinn served his country in the Navy during the Korean War and loved his country dearly. He was a man of many interests that ranged from mud racing to Broadway musicals, from gun shows to Bible studies. He was honest, truthful, insightful, and liked to share his opinion. He was a gentle soul who loved to pray with the rosary group on Tuesdays, visit the sick, and share his faith. He was a loyal friend, a loving father and father-figure to many. In his senior years, he reached out to the friends he could find with whom he shared his life journey to reconnect and reminisce. He recognized how many good mentors, teachers and friends shaped his life and wanted to say thank you. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Into your hands, Lord, we commend his spirit. An Evening Prayer service will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 20, 2019, at Smith & Kernke, 14624 N. May Ave. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 21 at St. Eugene Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, family requests memorial contributions to St. Eugene Catholic Church for their capital campaign.
