FRAMINGHAM - Paul E. Parker, Sr., 85, a resident of Framingham for more than 55 years, died Sunday May 10, 2020 after a brief illness. He was the beloved husband of Mary Ellen (Landry) Parker with whom he shared 60 years of marriage.

Born in Boston, he was the son of Glenn and Clare (Slattery) Parker. A former resident of Scituate, he was a graduate of Archbishop Williams High School. Mr. Parker was a Marine Corps veteran of the Korean War and saw extensive combat during his three year enlistment. He was honorably discharged in 1956 as a corporal. He was employed by Suburban Welders Supply in route delivery sales for more than 20 years and also worked in security post retirement at Framingham Cooperative Bank and as a night watchman for the Town of Framingham Dept. of Public Works.

A member of the Framingham Elks and Eagles, he was also a member of the Knights of Columbus, Coeur de Leon Council and a coach for Framingham Little League for many years. Paul enjoyed golfing and worked part time as a starter for the former Millwood Golf Course in Framingham.

In addition to his wife, he leaves his children: Paul E. Parker, Jr. of Baltimore and Laura E. Paton of Framingham; his grandchildren: Alex, Samantha, Tyler, Sydney and Emily Parker; and a sister: Delores Zaborski of Marshfield. He was the father of the late Peter G. Parker.

Because of the current health restrictions, all services are private for the family. Mr. Parker will be laid to rest at the Massachusetts National Cemetery, Bourne. Instead of flowers, the family suggests a donation be made in Paul's name to: the American Heart Association, PO Box 417005, Boston, MA. 02241-7005. Boyle Bros. Funeral Home of Framingham assisted with arrangements. Memorial page:

Dear Mrs. Parker, Paul, and Laura,
I remember Mr. Parker well, though I crossed paths with him briefly. Thinking back on that year plus in Framingham, I recall a kind, generous, and welcoming man. My father and mother liked him as well. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you. I remember you all, including Peter.

With deepest sympathy

I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences.
When we are grieving the loss of a loved one, we can find comfort from the scriptures. I found a couple scriptures at
Psalm 55:22 promises that God will sustain us if we just throw our burdens on him. So we need to remember to pray.
I look forward to seeing him in the resurrection when he will again be enjoying friends/family. (John 5:28,29).
I hope these scriptures bring you as much comfort as they bring me.

Mrs. Parker and Paul,

I am so sorry for your loss, and equally sorry that I cannot tell you so in person. On those occasions when I did meet him, Mr. Parker was always a pleasant and upbeat man. And he, as well as both of you, will remain part of my MHS memory bank. God bless.

We went to the Union Oyster house near Faneuil Hall and I said “it stinks in here!” Should have never said that to a man that loved that place! We didn’t stay long lol.

I know this about Paul, he loved his family deeply and God. And we love and will miss him.
