Mr. Isaiah Parker Obituary

Isaiah Parker born February 24th, 2005, in St. Louis Missouri. He was the youngest of his siblings.

Isaiah attended Froebel & Halls Ferry Elementary, Cross Keys Middle School, and McCluer North & North Tech High Schools, where he participated in (CTE) career and technical education.  He selected the carpentry program where he shined and caught on really quick. He was a wonderful leader and an excellent worker, which was no surprise. His teachers throughout the years often said that Isaiah was a leader among his peers because he chose to lead and not follow. If he did anything in class that he shouldn't have, he only had to be redirected once, and never committed the same act again. 

Isaiah excelled at any and everything that he put his mind to. He was good at math. He tutored algebra to some of his friends. He loved to attend summer camp, where he learned to swim. When Isaiah was 7 or 8 years old, he was determined to teach himself how to spin a basketball on his finger. He would practice for hours. When he mastered it, he would watch TV everyday, just spinning the ball on his finger.

He loved running through the house, singing and dancing, especially after he'd finished eating dinner.  His favorite food was fried chicken. Whenever his meal was chicken, he would come out the kitchen dancing, repeating in a funny voice, "I like chicken”. “I like chicken".  One of his dreams was to open a chicken restaurant. 

Isaiah was such a joy to have in our home and lives. He was always cracking jokes and making us laugh. He loved his quiet time by himself, listening to music, playing his PlayStation and cuddling on the floor with his 87lb dog. Isaiah was such sn affectionate child. He loved to be hugged and kissed on his cheeks. Especially when he was sick, he loved to crawl on the couch next to me and lay his head in my lap.  When I cuddled him he would say, "Ma, I'm in your arms right where I want to be".  We had good laughs about that.

Isaiah played basketball in middle school. His football coach Mr. Miller, told me that although Isaiah can play basketball, football was his game. He encouraged Isaiah to play high school football.  When Isaiah were in 10th grade, I was picking him up from football practice one evening and Mr. Watson, his football coach asked me what plans we have for college? He let me know that Isaiah could put McCluer North on the map. He had great potential of receiving a college football scholarship, because he was just that good. Isaiah was very excited, and I was delighted and very proud but I wasn't surprised because when Isaiah was 9 years old, but the size of a 6 & 7 year old with little tiny feet, he would pick up grown men 195lbs being the heaviest.

Isaiah loved stepping out with the latest fashion. He loved his sneakers. His hair had to be on point. He told me that I was his stylist but he would always say, "I can't let my friends know that my mama do my hair and pick out my clothes".  Isaiah never became comfortable with people staring at him and couldn't understand why they would stare when he entered a room. I explained to him that it was God's light that shined upon him, the beautiful qualities that he was blessed with, and if he could only see what I and others saw, he would completely understand.

Isaiah was a blessing to our lives. He departed this life on Thursday, March 24th 2024. He will be missed by the many lives that he touched, but never forgotten. During Isaiah's short life time here on earth, he left a positive, loving mark.  Job well done my loving son.
