Logan Thomas Parker

Logan Thomas Parker, age 34, died on February 12, 2023, in Oklahoma City. He was born on January 12, 1989, in Stillwater, Oklahoma to Tom and Lee Ann Parker. Logan grew up in Bristow, Oklahoma and was a fun, energetic kid who celebrated every birthday with a breakfast picnic on his bedroom floor before school, loved fishing and hunting and anything outdoors. He was always outside exploring until the sun went down building things out of anything he could find or working on his tree house. He sustained his busy lifestyle by eating cereal out of a mixing bowl filled to the brim. He loved animals and a dear friend to Logan, Lavon Warren, gave him a 5ft Iguana named Steve that he kept in his room on a giant tree branch for many years. Logan excelled in sports and especially loved football and wrestling. He was a proud Purple Pirate and when he played, he played with his whole heart. Logan was witty, quirky, funny and had a sensitive heart. He would do anything for anyone and was always looking out for an underdog or some sort of animal to keep in his room. Logan graduated from Bristow High School in 2008, relocated to Oklahoma City and started working in various construction jobs and was a member of Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 344. He married Lauren Alexander in December 2014, and they had two children, Lily Pearl Parker and Lukas Alexander Parker. He was never more proud of anything in the world than he was of his children. He had great love for them and wanted to do everything he could to be a good dad. As a family, they took some incredible vacations, spent a lot of summers at Lake Eufaula and created precious memories. His legacy and the best parts of him will be carried on through his children. Logan had everything to live for but struggled greatly with addiction and mental illness. Addiction robbed everything from him. Logan's family wants to share the truth surrounding these struggles that ultimately took his life in hopes that someone who is struggling seeks help for hurts, habits or hangups in their life before they choose to self-medicate with substance or drug of any kind. It isn't just the addict who suffers, it's everyone who loves them. Logan's battle against untreated mental illness and drug abuse often felt hopeless but those very closest to him always held on, wanting, and waiting to do anything they could do to help him make the first steps towards recovery. Logan never denied his faith through all the pain. We know that his faith in Christ has secured his eternal home in Heaven and that when he left here, he was there. No cravings, no withdrawals, no hurt, no depression, and the only voice he heard was the voice of Jesus "you are home, my son". His pain is over, and his fight has been won because of Jesus' death on the cross. Logan is preceded in death by his grandparents, Bob and Zoe Parker and Bob and Peggy Dickey; cousin, Ben Parker and Aunt, Kim Dickey. Logan is survived by Lauren Parker; his children, Lily and Lukas Parker; parents, Tom and Lee Ann Parker; sisters, Sally Kernke and her husband, Todd and their daughter, Jane. Libby Parker and her fiancé Ben Sampson; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and lifelong friends. Logan's life will be remembered at 10:00am on Friday, February 17, 2023, at Smith & Kernke (14624 N. May Ave. OKC) and he will be laid in his final resting place next to his grandparents at Hayward Cemetery in Hayward, Oklahoma.
