Gerald G. Parker, 81, of Valparaiso formerly of Highland passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, October 12, 2021. He was born July 26, 1940 in East Chicago, IN to Herman & Helen (Ambroseus) Parker, graduated from Bishop Noll Institute, served proudly with the U.S. Army, and received an Associates of Applied Science degree from Purdue University.  Gerald made his career with Inland Steel for 30 years as a Purchasing Agent.  Many will remember Gerald as an avid bowler at Plaza Lanes in Highland. He always kept a special place in his heart for his grandkids and animals, the two of which need not be mutually exclusive.  On September 4, 1965 he married Carol Redar who survives along with their daughter, Susan (Kevin) Sadler of Valparaiso, granddaughters, Shelby & Abigail Sadler, and many loving nieces, nephews & friends. He was preceded in death by his son, Michael Parker in 1990, his parents, and brothers, Herman and Michael Parker.
A private family burial ceremony was held on Friday at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens.  Memorial donations may be made to the VNA Hospice of NWI.
