November 25, 1958 ~ August 18, 2021 (age 62)


John Parker (Bear), born November 25,1958 passed away unexpectedly on August 18, 2021 in the place he loved, Camp.

John is survived by his wife Melanie (Serafini); son Joe (Crystal); grandsons Benjamin and Justin; his mom Bertha Krause (Hutchinson), and three sisters: Jeanette, Joanne, Jackie and families. 

He loved anything outdoors; hunting, fishing, horses. His energy was electric. Anyone who met him, instantly loved him. His connection with animals was magical to watch. John was always willing to lend a hand and never expected anything in return. He could fix anything. His leather workmanship was beautiful; he spent many hours with his dear friend Brian at his Saddle Shop. 

John’s dear friend Eddy said it best. “I have a lot of friends, but none I have laid my life in their hands and their life in my hands. That’s how special our bond was. Nobody on earth I would rather have by my side in the bush.”

John cherished family and friendships. He enjoyed having Larry & Eddy on his packing adventures. 

We will miss his laugh, sense of humour and “can-do” attitude. 

John wouldn’t want anyone to sit around and be sad. That being said, we invite you to come and celebrate his life on Saturday August 28, 2021 at 1:00 PM @ Crystal and Joe’s, 7040 Stubbs Road, Hosmer BC.
