Obituary

Weston Jensen Parker was called home on November 19, 2020, at the age of 76.  After several months of declining health, Weston passed away peacefully surrounded by family.

 

Weston was born on April 10, 1944 to David and Ivy Jensen Parker in Lanark, Idaho at the family home.  He was the third child of six.

 

Weston attended school in Paris, Idaho and graduated from Fielding High School in 1962.  He continued his education at Boise State where he played basketball.

 

After 1 year of college, Weston was called to serve a mission in Florida.  While on his mission, Puerto Rico opened and he was one of the first missionaries to serve in that area.

After his mission Weston came back home and helped his parents on the family ranch.  In 1967 he met the love of his life, Lynne Ann Smith.  They were married for time and all eternity in the Logan Temple on August 2, 1968.  Weston and Lynne Ann eventually took over the family ranch and raised 8 children.

 

Weston was a spiritual giant and never passed an opportunity to serve others.  He was very active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  He served in many positions including bishop and his favorites were nursery leader and ward mission leader.  Being raised on a dairy farm and being a dairy farmer himself, he was not afraid of hard work.  He was up before the sun every morning and in bed after the sun would go down. 

Weston is survived by this sweet wife, Lynne Ann, 3 brothers Vernon (Marsha) James (Marjean) and Melvin, 3 sons Paul ( Saundra), Mark (Melony), and Scott (Tracy), 3 daughters Debra (Rick), Rebecca (Travis), Tiffany (Con), 24 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. 

He is preceded in death by his parents (David & Ivy), 2 sisters (Judy & Betty) a son (Brian) and a daughter (Michele).
