Obituary for Blake Parker

Blake Parker, 31, of Robinson, IL, died at 4:34 p.m. on Saturday, November 12, 2016 in rural Lawrence County, IL following injuries sustained in an automobile accident. He was born January 19, 1985 in Richmond, KY, the son of Randy J. Parker & Julie (Riker) Parker.

Blake was a 2003 graduate of Robinson High School and went on to attend Vincennes University, studying CIM Industrial Maintenance. He was hired on at Duke Energy on August 11, 2014 as an electrician, and was a member of the Indianapolis IBEW Local #1393. Away from work, Blake was always making memories with great friends. He was a longtime Chicago Cubs baseball fan and also enjoyed ghost hunting locally. He will long be remembered as someone who would stop at nothing to make others laugh.
