John Wesley (Jack) Parker, Jr. left our world quietly and gracefully on September 15, 2015 at the age of 88. He joined the love of his life, Nancy Alene Johnson Parker who had passed just 10 months earlier. An avid Cal Berkeley Alumnus and Navy Veteran, Jack always had a smile and a warm glow for everyone he met. He was a worldly and intelligent gentleman to the end. Jack traveled the world with Nancy and chronicled all of their travels in great detail. He enjoyed a life filled with a loving family and great friends with whom he shared his kind heart. One of his favorite joys was his Tahoe summer cabin where he vacationed as a boy and visited for over 80 years. Jack hiked and backpacked throughout the Sierra. Having suffered a debilitating accident in 1996, Jack surpassed all expectations and enjoyed a life rewarded with the birth of two grandchildren and many celebrations that he loved so much. He is survived by his sister Patricia Robinson, his daughter and greatest joy Pamela Parker Selvig, son-in-law Rolf, and two grandsons Rolf Stanley Selvig, III (Tripp) and John Parker Selvig, (Jack), and his Border Terrier, Bobbie.

Jack’s family wishes to thank Oakmont Gardens in Santa Rosa, CA for their extraordinary care and close family of staff that took care of Jack and Nancy for the last 4 years of their lives.

While Jack will be missed he will be carried in our hearts and memories for the kindness and warmth he brought to everyone he met.
