David Richard “Dick” Parker passed away at his home on Aug. 22, 2019 in Burnet, Texas. He was born Sept. 21, 1959 to Donnie and Dorothy Parker in Alpine, Texas. Dick was raised on a ranch in Marathon, and he graduated from Marathon High School in 1978. After graduation Dick continued ranching in West Texas for the Paisano Ranch. He also worked for Brewster County Road and Bridge Department, and was a truck driver for Skelton Trucking of Alpine. 

On May 20, 1989, he was united in marriage to Beth Ann Molitor, and they were married for 30 beautiful years.  Together they had three children that were the center of their lives and marriage as they developed their home and business in Burnet. 

Dick loved hunting, shooting skeet, fishing, ranching, and spending time with family and friends. His other love was the business he built, and the friends, customers, and employees of Buchanan Septic Tanks.

He was preceded in death by his parents Donnie and Dorothy Parker.

Left to cherish his memories are wife Beth Molitor Parker of Burnet; three daughters, Michelle and husband Jonathan Austin of Jourdanton, Texas; Angela Parker of Lampasas, Texas; and Shaylyn and husband Clayton Meyerhoff of Lockhart, Texas. 

Dick had so much love for his grandchildren Karlee Parker and Dryden and Sutton Austin, and each of them held a special place in his heart. He was also survived by his brother Mike Parker and wife Katie of San Angelo, Texas; his loving aunts, Pat Martin of Marathon and Geneva Parks of Childress, Texas; along with numerous cousins, nieces, a nephew, and dear family friends.

A memorial service is planned for Friday, Sept. 6, 2019 at 2 p.m. at Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Burnet.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donations to the charity of your choice, or the Burnet FFA.
