    CHITTENDEN — John E. Parker Jr., 69, of Chittenden, died unexpectedly Saturday evening, Nov. 17, 2012.

    In his younger years, he enjoyed working with brothers Dick and Ray Parker doing construction jobs. John was a very talented craftsman and took great pride in his work. He wanted anyone who saw his work to know it was done correctly. He also liked spending time with his sisters Betty Crossman and Joyce Anderson, and giving them a helping hand whenever needed. John was always there to help his family and willing to lend a hand to people when needed

    John was also good friends with his ex-wife Jeannette Parker, and enjoyed spending time watching television in the evening and working on projects with her.

    He also enjoyed helping his grandson Nathaniel John Farnham on different electrical and solar projects, even if he was not so sure what the outcome would be in the long run. He was determined to stay as busy as possible, believing life was meant to be lived.

    He was a loving and extremely devoted dad who had a very special relationship with his daughter Ramona. They worked side by side on many projects and were inseparable. John spent countless hours helping out on Ramona’s small farm in Middletown Springs. John was a WWE Wrestling fan and turned Ramona into a wrestling fan as well. They watched wrestling together as much as possible.

    Funeral services will be held Saturday, November 24, 2012, at 10 a.m. at the North Chittenden Wesleyan Church. Burial will follow in Horton Cemetery in Chittenden, in a private family plot.
