Mr. John Lee Parker, son of the late Ned and Zonnie Parker, was born August 24, 1928.
He transitioned to his eternal home on Sunday, February 2, 2020 at home in Roxboro, NC. He was a native of Durham, NC and attended Durham County Public Schools.
He was united in holy matrimony to LaRussia Bullock on February 16, 1993. To this union five children were born. He was a loving husband, and a very proud father and grandfather.
“John Lee”, affectionately called by family and friends, confessed Christ as his Savior at an early age, was baptized and joined Mt. Level Missionary Baptist Church. He loved his church family and faithfully served as an usher, church custodian and member of the Male Chorus.
“John Lee” possessed exorbitant energy throughout his entire life, including his senior years. He constantly skipped about in a child-like manner never slowing his pace. His ability to leap and move about with speed was quite extraordinary. You might say he was just “wired” that way and the average person could not keep up with him.
Immediate family members preceding him in death are his parents, Ned and Zonie Parker and a sister, Ms. Daisy Tony.
Those who remain to cherish his memories: his loving and devoted wife, LaRussia Parker of Roxboro, six children; six children -Quantil, Keyana, and Jason of Roxboro, NC, Zonnie, Vanessa, and Ava Jean of Durham, NC; two grand-children – Caleb Lucas and Noel Jay of Durham; a host of nieces, nephews other relatives and friends.
