Memorial Information

T William R. Parker T


1948 - 2024

After bravely fighting a very aggressive form of acute myeloid leukemia, Randy died  peacefully at home on March 1, 2024. He is survived by Brenda, his wife of 20 years. He is also survived by his sons, Mike (Kristi) of Spokane Valley, WA; Jeff (Amy) of Valley Center, CA; Rob (Kim) of Escondido, CA; his daughter, Brandi (David) of Santa Rosa, CA, the children’s mother, Terry, of Escondido, CA,; sister, Susan, of El Cajon, CA; stepsons, Jack of San Francisco, CA; Andrew (Elen) of Rancho Cucamonga, CA; Joshua (Gloriecel) of Oceanside, CA; also 17 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.


Randy was born April 5, 1948, in Orlando, Florida. When he was a young child, the family moved to the San Diego, California, area where he lived most of his life. After graduating from high school, Randy married his high school sweetheart and served in the United States Air Force in Viet Nam, an experience that impacted his life in many ways. Randy raised a beautiful family in the San Diego area, and built a successful career in the automobile industry. He loved all sports, especially NASCAR and college football. 


In 2009, Randy and Brenda moved to Sun City, AZ, where he loved living in his little slice of paradise with the golf course in his backyard. He quickly became a loved addition to the neighborhood. Randy read God’s word daily, and the Holy Spirit gave him hands to help others, plus smiles and encouragement to those who needed it. He was an avid walker, sometimes walking up to 10 or more miles a day, and met many people along the way. He knew no strangers, loved to laugh, and delighted those he talked to with “word play” of adages and aphorisms. He is deeply missed by all whose paths he crossed.
