October 4, 1953 – October 6, 2017

Douglas Steven Parker, born October 4, 1953 in Roseburg, to Harold and Alvera (Johnston) Parker has passed away in Portland on October 6, 2017.

He was the second youngest of seven children, spending most of his younger years in Roseburg and surrounding areas. Doug graduated from Roseburg High School in 1971 and from Umpqua Community College in 1973.

He moved up to the Corvallis/Albany area to start work at CH2M HILL in 1973, where he stayed for 42 years until his retirement in 2015.

In June 1984 he married Cindy (Cox) in Reno and had two daughters, Lisa and Amber.

He dedicated his life to his family and will be remembered for his great sense of humor. He absolutely loved his grandchildren and would go to great lengths to hear their laughter. He enjoyed target shooting with his friends and family, football and spam. Doug was an avid hunter and fisherman. He will be missed, loved and in our hearts forever. He was the best.

Doug is preceded in death by his father Harold Parker; brother James (Jim) Page; sisters Velda (Page) Fisher and Billie (Parker) Boerste.

He is survived by his wife Cindy, of Albany; daughters Lisa (Parker) Sparks of Oak Harbor, Washington and Amber Parker of Scio; mother Alvera of Roseburg; brothers Edward Parker and Donnie Parker of Roseburg; sister Leona (Parker) Boerste of Oakridge; and 11 grandkids, ages ranging from two to13 years old.
