Parker Meador

Parker Meador, who resided in Wickes, Arkansas, passed away in the early morning hours of December 4, 2023. He was born on January 21, 1942, in Mena, Arkansas, to the late George Meador and Delta (Myers) Meador. He was blessed with 81 years of life. Parker was born as part of a set of triplets and was proceeded in death by his triplet sister, Patricia House, and his identical twin brother, Pierre Meador (Two Daddy). He was also preceded in death by his sisters, Joyce Mussick, Gerri Glover, and Sybil Jones; and three brothers, Bud Meador, G.W. Meador, and Gerald Meador.

Parker was a retired contractor for DCI where he spent many years traveling around the United States installing drywall in Dillards. This career let him see the country and make countless friends. He was a man of all trades thriving in completing daily crossword puzzles, construction, and farming. There was not a job too big or too small for him. If you needed something built, Parker would not stop (unless it got dark) until the task was completed. He lived to help others and would give the shirt off his back to help a neighbor in need. Our father was one of the great, quiet ones that often sat and listened rather than speak. His toothpick smile will be missed dearly by all those left to carry on his love and memory.

He is survived by his four daughters, Paula (Meador) and Ralph Gallucci of Ventura, CA, Treva (Meador) Stolki of Little Rock, AR, Melissa (Meador) and Charles Chambers of Malvern, AR, and Patricia (Meador) and Wes Murray of El Dorado, AR; his brothers Bill Meador, also of Wickes, and Harry Meador of Wichita Falls, TX; and ten grandchildren, Hayden Stolki, Amber, Justin (Maddie), and Michael Yates, Tallis Kyle, Lillian, Gage, and Jack Chambers, and Parker and Whitt Murray. He is also survived by his companion Lisa Beckwith of Wickes, her children that he thought of as his own, Rodney and Stevie Lawrence and Amanda Sickles; their children that thought of Parker as his Papa; and her sister and brother-in-law whom he considered family, Linda and Michael Keisling.

A memorial service will be held on March 2, 2024, at Daniel Cemetery at noon.
