Henry Parker
Dec 02, 1950 to Feb 23, 2017


Henry Lee Parker, 66, departed this earthly life on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at Palmetto Health Tuomey Hospital, Sumter. Born December 2, 1950, in Sumter County, he was the son of Josephine Nickens Parker and the late Willie Parker, Sr. He grew up in a community of faith, which led him at an early age to confess Christ and unite with Joshua Baptist Church. Henry was educated in the public schools of Sumter County. After graduating high school, he moved to New York where he worked at Bloomingdales for almost 20 years. After retiring from Bloomingdales and returning to Sumter, he rejoined Joshua Baptist Church, where he served on the First Sunday Choir because he loved good gospel music. Henry was self employed as a rental property manager and was also a community plumber. His memories will be cherished by his mother, Josephine Nickens Parker; his daughter, Dana Brantley; son-in-law, Jay Brantley, and granddaughter, Jada of Ft. Lauderdale, FLA; brothers, Willie Parker, Jr. (Delores), Sammie H. Parker, Melvin Parker, Clarence Parker of Sumter; sisters, Carolyn Parker Gooden (James) of Denver, CO, Shirley Parker Snipe (Arthur) of Irmo; four aunts; one uncle; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Homegoing Services will be held Friday, March 3, 2017 - 11:00 a. m., from the Joshua Baptist Church, 5200 Live Oak Road, Dalzell, with the Rev. Eugene G. Dennis, pastor, eulogist.
