Harry "Hody" "Little Honey" William Parker, 58, passed away Aug. 28, 2019, at his home in Santa Rosa, California.
He was born in 1960 and grew up in Hinsdale. He was a graduate of Hinsdale Central High School and Northwood University in Midland, Mich., where he was a member of Alpha Kappa Psi fraternity. He worked in car sales at Elmwood Ford and in truck sales at Freeway Ford in Lyons, for the majority of his career. Harry is remembered for his love of a good prank and his playful sense of humor with a great laugh. Harry spent his Sundays in the fall enthusiastically cheering on the Chicago Bears, the Bulls and the White Sox. He was known to throw fun parties - whether in his backyard, basement or boat. He loved his loyal canine companion, JuJu, and the many dogs he owned throughout this life.
Harry is remembered as being very easy to love.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Marion of Hinsdale.
He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Jacky; his four daughters, Sarah, Lucy, Alexandra and Mary; his older brother, John (Betsy); his sisters, Polly and Nancy (Rick); and many nieces and nephews.
