Obituary

George Issac Parker, Jr., longtime educator and Principal of Nandua High School, departed this life on June 18, 2020 after an unexpected battle with brain cancer. He was born on July 25, 1965 to George and Catherine Parker in Melfa, Virginia.

George, affectionately known to family and friends as “Little George” or “Uncle,” received his education in the Accomack County Public Schools, where he would later play a large role in the education of several young people in our county. He later went on to earn his undergraduate degree in Biology from Virginia State University. Upon graduation, he returned home to care for his parents, who were battling cancer. George continued to pursue his education at Salisbury State University. There he obtained a Master of Education/Education of Administration (PreK-12). He was currently working on obtaining his medical license to become a Physician’s Assistant.

Mr. Parker, as he was known by his colleagues and students, was a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. He enjoyed serving his community and respected and loved the bond he had with his fraternity brothers. George was also a third-degree black belt in martial arts. It brought him great joy teaching this art to many. Another favorite pastime was working out at the YMCA, in fact, George earned “Celebrity Status” there, which followed him to Nandua High School. The students loved it and questioned his physical accomplishments he bragged about.

Mr. Parker was a mentor to many. He believed every kid had the potential to achieve his or her dreams, whether they believed in themselves or not. No matter how hard the goal, whether it was a physical activity or academics, he encouraged them to do their best. He wanted students to always strive for more than they thought they were capable of doing.

George was preceded in death by his parents, George and Catherine Parker; and sisters, Karen Sample and Amy Collins.

He is survived by his loving brothers and sisters, Sheron (Art) Payne of Woodbridge, VA, Kerby Parker of Mitchellville, MD, Kathy (Alfonzo) Custis of Melfa, VA, Matilda (Adolph) Wade of Bowie, MD, Janis (Ralph) Harmon of Nelsonia, VA, and Eric (Sharon) Parker of Kenosha, WI; brother-in-law, Darrell Sample; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.

My condolences to Mr. Parker's family. I will never be able to believe Mr Parker is gone. He left us too soon. I had the privilege to work at Nandua High Sch when he was Assistant Principal. He was always very respectful and supportive. His presence at the YMCA was always known; as he helped so many young folks to pay attention to dieting and exercise. The legacy that he leaves his beloved Eastern Shore will live on in the hearts of everyone who knew him. RIP Mr. Parker.

I am so sorry to hear of George's passing. The y will not be the same. I would always see him there. I also went to school with him, I guess thru junior high, as it was called back then, at Mary N. Smith. However, during high school he was a bulldog and I was a blue devil. He was such a kind man and such a wonderful role model for the youth. I enjoyed seeing him at the y with many male students working out. I even mentioned it to him one time there, how great it was that He was trying to guide them in the right direction. He will be missed! His family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Although we were neighbors, I saw George most often out in public. Every time I saw him he was always the same. He usually greeted me with a smile, and I would ALWAYS witness him greeting youth with encouragement. It was obvious that he truly had their best interest at heart.
George always had kind words-much like in our high school years. To know George, was to know a caring, kind soul. I will certainly miss him. Family, be strong and be comforted by God's love, peace, and strength in this difficult time.
Sincerely, Glynis Bailey Savage

Dear Family,
There are no words to adequately describe the sorrow of losing such a wonderful person. He was a gentleman, mentor, role model and warrior...when needed. He left such a mark on all who knew him and he will never be forgotten. Both of my sons attended Nandua HS and were very fortunate to be influenced by his presence. They always spoke so very highly of him and all of our interactions as parents showed a professional, compassionate and caring man. The good Lord put him right where he needed to be to influence so many...young and old. My brother and I were lucky enough to attend Central High School (Go Bulldogs!) back in the day and knew him as a fellow student...a few years younger than myself but the same age/grade as my brother. Even back then he was a really nice and caring individual. He will definitely be missed by all. May the peace that surpasses all understanding be with his family and friends during this difficult time. God bless.
Lisa Hill Gibb, Gary, Nick & Alex.
