Obituary

Mr. Ivery Lee Parker departed this life on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at Michigan Medicine: University of Michigan in
Ann Arbor, MI. God blessed him with 74 beautiful years on this earth. Ivery was born in Madison, Alabama on
August 25, 1944, to the late Ned Fletcher and Ada Lee Parker. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Willie James Baker of Toledo, Ohio.

During high school, Ivery had a successful football career and graduated from Councill Training High School in
Huntsville, AL in 1962. He joined the United States Air Force shortly thereafter and married Sandra (Tuck) Parker on May 28, 1965. After his tour of service, Ivery was honorably discharged and later moved his family from Orlando, Florida to Toledo, Ohio.

Ivery gave his life to the Lord by joining Union Grove Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend Jesse L. Spears. He was a dedicated member with excellent attendance until he became ill.

Ivery or “Rock Jaw,” as his work family called him, provided for his family for over 30 years as a truck driver for Roadway Express in Toledo, OH. During this time, he achieved many awards for safe driving including the Million Mile Safe Drivers Award of Excellence. Upon retiring from his profession as a truck driver, Ivery enjoyed his free time, which he well deserved. He made the best of it with his sense of humor, numerous fishing trips, and annual birthday celebrations with family and friends. He also enjoyed working in his yard and performing routine maintenance on his cars.

He leaves to cherish his memory a loving wife of over 54 years, Sandra E. Parker of Toledo, OH; sister, Maxine
Darrington of Toledo, OH, brothers, Melvin Miller of Huntsville, AL and Ray Lewis Hines of Toledo, OH; daughters
Antoinette (Calvin) Moore of Tuscaloosa, AL, Terri (Terrence) Parker of Toledo, OH; sons James (Shirley) Hughes of Huntsville, AL, Colin (Tamara) Parker of Charlotte, NC, Eric (Tracy) Moore of Madison, AL, Corey (Carol) Parker of Cincinnati, OH; granddaughters Adriele Parker of Brooklyn, NY, Vana Parker of Los Angeles, CA, Taylor and London Parker of Charlotte, NC, Christa Hughes of Huntsville, AL; grandsons Marcus Hughes of Huntsville, AL, Justin (Ashley) Strayhorn Sr., of San Antonio, TX, Kevin Hughes of Huntsville, AL, Shamari Hinkston of Cincinnati, OH, Parker Chatman of Toledo, OH, Kendall and Kaleb Parker of Charlotte, NC., and Jakari Parker of Cincinnati, OH; close cousin, James Clayborn of Huntsville, AL; and a host of great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

To Sandra, Terry, Colin and Corey -- I am saddened to hear of the passing of your beloved husband and father. Know that your family is in our prayers -- Iva Lee as we always called him -- will be missed. There is no words to express in this time of sorrow -- but know that he is in a better place now, no longer suffering -- and that his memory will forever live through his family -- which is quite a legacy -- as he left this world a better place by bestowing upon us his legacy through his children and grands God Bless you all and may he grant your hearts peace and many precious memories.

Hello, I would like to express my sincere condolences on the death of your loved one. I know that times like this can be a very trying and difficult time for the family and the friends of the loved one. But perhaps some words from God's word the Bible may be able to offer you some comfort during this trying time at Revelations chapter 21 and verse 4 it says, and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore the former things have passed away. And at John chapter 5 verse 28 and 29 it says do not be amazed at this for the hour is coming and which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practice vial things to a resurrection of judgment. So God is telling us that sometimes in the future we may be able to see our loved ones in God's new world. I hope that these words of Gods Bible will offer some comfort for you and your family and friends, again my sincerest condolences,, Charles Holloman
