Charles was born in Belhaven, NC on March 4, 1957 to Matthew and LewEllen Parker at Pungo District Hospital. He graduated from John A. Wilkinson High School in Belhaven in 1975 and eventually continued his education at Mount Olive College. His career began at Texasgulf in Aurora. He then went on to work at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Virginia. He moved back to North Carolina and worked at Weyerhauser, Plymouth before returning to PCS/Nutrien, Aurora where he retired as Foreman of the Industrial Trades Division.
Charles was a true Patriot. His love for God and country knew no bounds. Charles could be found, every day at noon, beside his radio, listening to the conservative messages brought to him by his friend, Rush. His passions in life included fishing, the beach, drag racing, piddling around the yard, his garden, his place at the river, and most importantly, his family, his friends, and his church. Charles was always the life of the party. He never met a stranger and was loved by everyone.
Charles is survived by his beloved wife, Donna. She was his rock, his support system, his everything. His love for her was profound. Charles is also survived by his adoring daughter, Jessica Parker Neal and her husband Trey who reside in Winterville, NC, his daughter Mary Cunningham Daniels, and her husband Jim who reside in Georgetown, TX, and his son, William Cody Cunningham, who resides in Washington, NC. While he loved his children with all his heart, each of his grandchildren were the light of his life. His grandchildren include two granddaughters; Madelyn Jane Neal and Paisley Marylyn Daniels and grandson Airman Charles Hunter Daniels who is stationed at Kitsap Naval Base in Bremerton, Washington. Charles is also survived by his younger brother, Gordon Tracy Parker and his wife, Becky.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his honor will be accepted at Washington Assembly of God.
