David William Parker, age 57, of Forsyth, passed away March 2, 2022.
David was born on March 8, 1964 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Prince and Daneen Parker. David spent his early years in Michigan alongside twin sister Donna until the age of seven when the Parker family relocated to Georgia. He spent his years as a young adult in Clayton County and began his longtime career in remodeling work in East Point. David also lived in Tallapoosa, Georgia for a time. In 2017, David moved to Forsyth, where he spent the remainder of his life.
David was a free spirit who enjoyed riding his Harley, the outdoors, hunting and living off the land. He was known to spend time living in the woods or by a river, where he was most comfortable. He was handy and could fix just about anything. He was easy going but also stubborn. He had a heart for animals and once had a pet horse named Ranger and a pet owl. David was a simple man who had faith in God. He battled throat cancer and other health issues over the years. David enjoyed the simple things in life, particularly his beer, cigarettes, rocking chair and Southern Rock music.
