    Dear Debbie & Parker Families.
    Saddened to hear the news of Neil’s passing. I feel blessed to have spent a litte time with Neil and your families while you were in Mt. Pleasant. I know Neil will be missed but what a fine example of a good man he was. I can’t remember a time when he had negative thought. It has been over 1/2 of our lifetime since we hung out played and even Boxed with each other in the famous Parker Garage in Mt. Pleasant but still I wouldn’t trade the memories or the friends we had for anything. Rest in Peace my Friend. Truly, Chris Devlin

    Dear Debbie & Family:

    Very sad to hear about Neil, all my thoughts and prayers are with you. I can still picture Neil working on cars and dune buggies in the famous “Parker Garage”. Always smiling when he was covered in grease and ready to drop everything he was doing to help anyone out. Rest in Peace my friend, you were a great man.

    With deepst sympathy for Dean, his family and all of Neil’s family and friends:

    This is one of those most difficult moments for all of those whom had been touched by Neil–although many years have passed, Neil is still a bright light that shines in my memories of much younger years with fond and good memories — I’m so sorry we did not have those last moments to say our good byes and loving support in July at Mrs. Parker’s 90th birthday celebration. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this most difficult time.

    Sincerely,

  15. Beth Collins ( Stout) :

    To the Parker Family: My deepest condolences to all of Neils family. While it has been many years since I have seen Neil he was always nice (and handsome) to the pesky Stout girls during our visits & sleepovers in Mt. Pleasant. He was good at moving piles of newspapers out of the way to make room for another body and if you did not want to drink warm cows milk he’d do it for you. Neil was a favourite of Glenna’s and she’ll be there to greet him on the other side.
    To the Brantford clan.. Loosing a vibrant brother & son too soon just sucks, Be good to one another and cherish the great stuff.
    Sincerely, Beth

    Dear Debbie – I just learned from Al Frazer last night that Neil had passed. I am shocked, and so sorry I wasn’t at his memorial. Neil was a great guy, and even though I didn’t see him much in recent years, we were friends for life- he was always so fun loving and full of life! Mary and I are really saddened to hear of his death – our thoughts are with you. Michael and Mary Dunkley
