Denton E. "Tubby" Parker II, 56, of Williamsport, died unexpectedly Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, at ManorCare North. He was preceded in death by his wife of 21 years, Gizelle G. (Graybill) Parker on Oct. 28, 2010.
Born Sept. 3, 1962 in Williamsport, he was a son of the late Denton E. Parker and Connie L. (Dowling) Spong.
Denton was a 1980 Williamsport High School graduate and also earned an electronics degree from WACC. He worked as an electrician for many years, and also was a taxi cab driver. Prior to his wife's passing he often could be found helping Gizelle with her business, Busy Bee Lunch. Denton was a lifelong Rams Football fan, enjoyed hunting and four-wheeling. His optimistic, sarcastic, personality and teddy-bear demeanor will certainly be missed by his family and friends.
Surviving are, a son, Denton E. Parker III (Taylor Weaver); a brother, Michael W. Parker (Eveleen); and a daughter, Chandra Bower, all of Williamsport; as well as extended family members and a circle of good friends.
A memorial service to honor the life of Denton will be held privately at the convenience of the family. Burial will take place in English Center Cemetery.
