January 10, 1958 — March 26, 2022

Gordon LaRue Parker, 64, of Greers Ferry, Arkansas, passed away on March 26, 2022, at his home. 


Gordon was born in Heber Springs, Arkansas on January 10th, 1958, and graduated from Searcy High School.  He continued his education to earn a degree in accounting from Arkansas State University, where he met his wife, Patricia Parker.  

He flew airplanes with initial ambitions to be an air force pilot.  Afterward, he began his career at an investment firm in Little Rock, Arkansas as a highly-skilled accountant.  After the birth of his first son, he moved to Greers Ferry, Arkansas where he opened a convenience store, “Parker’s Bend”, with his wife.  Soon after, they opened a grocery store, “Parker’s Big Star”, and moved to live on and operate a cattle ranch.

Gordon was an extremely hard worker and dedicated father who always found himself the happiest when he was surrounded by family and friends.  He will be deeply missed by all his friends and family.
