Jimmie Thomas ”JT” Parker, 80, passed away at home in West Point surrounded by his family on Wednesday, November 14, 2012.

Jimmie is survived by his wife of 51 years, Bonnie Ruth (Morris) Parker; son, Jonathan Parker, son and daughter-in-law, Clarkston and Cari Parker; brother, Howard (MH) Parker; sister-in-law, Delores Parker; and a large, loving extended family.
