Fred Parker passed away peacefully at home on April 26, after a six-month battle with esophageal cancer. He was a great father, husband, friend, business owner, and community leader. He lived life on his own terms and remained true to the western aesthetic rooted in his genealogy.
Fred was well-loved for his generosity, sense of fun and creativity, be it the Hard Times Cafe, his chili spice business, the Halloween Time Machine Extravaganza, the many parties thrown in his adobe hacienda, and his unwavering support for community fundraisers.
This website is dedicated to remembering Fred’s life.
