Daniel Roland Parker, age 73 of Middleville, went to be with his Lord on Friday, December 11, 2020. Dan was born on September 7, 1947 in Muskegon to Rollo and Mary (Brown) Parker. His faith in Christ was the driving force in his life. He and his wife, Linda, were longtime members of the St. Paul Lutheran Church, and played a pivotal part in starting a mission church in Middleville that first met in the TK Middle School Cafeteria. In 1980, Dan started the Christian Membership Directory, with a desire to connect Christians from all denominational backgrounds to each other. Dan loved his community and was a very active member of various boards, such as the Lincoln Meadow Housing Commission board, Middleville village council, the Thornapple-Kellogg school board for 12 years (serving as past president), the Middleville Rotary Club (where he also served as president), and the zoning board of appeals. He was proud to be a county commissioner for six years and was involved in many Parks and Recreation initiatives. Most recently, Dan was excited to be the Thornapple Township Supervisor-elect. He was part of the committee that started varsity soccer at TKHS and he coached all three of his boys in AYSO. As a young man, he was a camp counselor at Camp Pendalouan in Muskegon and continued that tradition at Father and Son camp with both his sons and grandsons. Dan was also known for his love of all people. He was quick to offer a smile or a joke.He often would go the extra mile for people that others had overlooked.Dan will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Linda (Tennant) Parker; children: Scott (Moon) Parker, Josh (Ivanna) Parker, Maria (Matt) Hall, Dan (Laura) Parker; grandchildren: Morgan Hall, Isaiah Parker, Judah Parker, Shepherd Parker, Uriah Parker, Isabel Hall, Viggo Parker, Logan Hall, Elijah Parker, Charlotte Parker, Amy Parker, Madelyn Parker, Evelyn Parker, Felicia Parker; sisters, Colleen (Tom) Smith, Vicki (Jacobus) Maas and several nieces. Dan was preceded in death by his parents, Mary and Rollo Parker. Dan was a consummate salesman, if he loved something or found a good deal he would be sure to let you know about it. He was known for his love of people, a good joke and ready smile. He did things big- big house, big dog, big parties, big dreams. He rooted for the underdog and always strived to leave things better than what they were when he arrived. He left us too soon, but we are all better for having had him in our lives. Friends and relatives may meet with the family on Wednesday, December 16th from 12:00 to 3:00 P.M. and 5:00 to 8:00 P.M. at the St. Paul Lutheran Church in Caledonia.
