He was born Robert Patrick Parker, Jr., on March 3, 1966 in Nashville to the late Robert Patrick and Lillian Ethel Mathes Parker, Sr. Rob worked for many years as a Master Electrician at DEI.
Rob was described as loving and adventurous man. He loved spending time with his family fishing and hunting for arrowheads. Rob was a family man through and through. No matter what his family was going through he was there to lend a hand. He loved watching NASCAR with his wife. Most days you would find him standing in a circle with either his friends or coworkers with his thumbs hooked in his shirt deciding what job was next or making everyone laugh by telling jokes.
