Obituary for LLOYD THOMAS "DICK" PARKER

Lloyd Thomas Parker (aka) Dick was born on September 18, 1944, to the late Maggie Young and Monzell White of Calvert County, MD. He transitioned into eternal life on February 19, 2017 at Loch Raven Veterans Center. In hopes of giving Lloyd a better life, they graciously permitted the late Leatha & Thomas Parker to adopt him. September 17, 1961, was one Lloyd's proudest moments becoming a father, to his only child Joliet Jones.


He graduated from W.P. Sampson Brooks High School 1962. He proudly served his country in the Air Force in 1963. He was stationed at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona. Lloyd was an independent hard working man. Throughout his years, he worked at Southern Maryland Tri-County; Sears Catalog Store; Lawrence Williams Liquors and occasional farm work.


Lloyd was a kind person with a loving spirit, who loved spending time with family and friends. He had a loving kind sprit and loved talking about the Lord. He would say "Keep God first and love everyone". He enjoyed reading; his favorite subjects were African American History and the Bible. One of his special verses was: "He only is my rock & my salvation. He is my defense; I shall not be moved."Psalm 62:6. A topic that was dear to his heart was talking about the joys of his life, daughter Joliet and grandchildren Paulina and Brandon. He had numerous hobbies shooting pool and playing dominos. In 2013 he won 2nd place in a pool tournament. Lloyd was always well dressed when stepping out "Sharp as a Tack" and smooth as silk on the dance floor.


April 2014 Lloyd made an unselfish decision when he registered with the State's Body Donation Program; donating his remains for the use in the advancement of medical research and education. Thereafter, his ashes will be buried at the Veterans Cemetery at Crownsville, Maryland.

Lloyd is preceded in death by: mother, Maggie Young, father, Monzell White, adoptive parents Leatha and Thomas-Parker, sisters: Elizabeth Smith, Viola Spencer and brother Billy Gough. He is survived: by daughter, Joliet Jones; grandchildren, Paulina Caples and Brandon Caples; sister, Beatrice Young (Bea); brothers, Raymond Height, James Jimmy Gough, Chester Young and Dale Young; aunt, Mary Johnson and host of nieces & nephews other relatives, and best friend William Jones.
