Charles Alder Parker


Charles Aldie Parker was born on July 14, 1987 and left us on July 31, 2017. He was born in Austin, Texas at Seton Medical Center to William and Florence Parker. They brought him home to Alum Creek, where he was raised, spending his youth playing on the creek with friends and family. They loved to hunt and fish on the family land. He graduated from Smithville High School in 2006. He worked for Brookshire Brothers and Griffin Industries before finding his true calling with the Union Pacific Railroad. There he was a Machine Operator with Section Gang 8795 and Member of the BMWE Local 1338. Charles had the biggest heart with the most charming personality and was loved by everyone. While he has left us too soon, our memoires of Charles are left behind to honor and remember him, including that signature smile.

He was preceded in death by his father William David Parker. He is survived by his son Baylin William Parker and daughter Abigail Kay Parker. Charles is also survived by a large family and many friends who he considered to be like family. He was loved dearly by and will be missed by many.
