Murfreesboro, NC

Fundraiser ends on December 02, 2020

Show your support for the Parker family by making a donation to the church he loved so dearly, Meherrin Baptist Church.

Elvin was born on October 5, 1942 to Elvin Collin Parker and Dorothy Lee Dilday Parker in Murfreesboro, NC. He was a graduate of Murfreesboro High School, Chowan College, and a devoted member of Meherrin Baptist Church. Elvin spent his life farming, was a natural engineer, and carpenter, all while raising three beautiful children. He never met a stranger and loved to tell a good story, filling the silence on many occasions. He was a peace maker but also knew how to lay down the law. He enjoyed spending time with his family and loved them dearly. Elvin had a passion for perfection in life and singing. He had a huge love for singing, from doing events with his sister Joyce, to the barber shop quartets, from Suffolk, VA to Gainsville, FL. He was well known for his deep smooth bass voice. Elvin met the love of his life; Candace and they spent many great years together singing in a gospel band that ministered in prisons in north and central Florida. Words to live by, "Keep The Whole World Singing"!

Thanks for your donation!
