Kenneth “Andy” Andrew Parker, 56, of Chattanooga, passed away on Thursday, August 1, 2019.
Andy was born March 23, 1963, in San Andreas, California to the late Frank and Rilla “Anne” Parker and was a long time resident of Chattanooga. He earned his Bachelors of Science in Marketing from the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga in 1995 and was an account manager for ?Horizon Wine and Spirits?. He retired to Reliance, Tn., in 2014 where he enjoyed the mountains of East Tennessee and spent time enjoying his hobbies such as biking, hiking and especially kayaking. He loved to take people down the Ocoee and Hiwassee rivers as a whitewater raft guide so everyone could enjoy the river as much as he did.
Andy will be remembered for the life lessons he taught, his love and knowledge of the outdoors, and good laughs with friends and family.
Survivors are his son, Justin Parker, of Knoxville, daughter, Megan Parker, of Chattanooga, and his twin brother, Frank “Eddy” Parker, of Raleigh, N.C.
A memorial service celebrating the life of Andy will take place on Saturday, August 17, from 1-3 p.m. at Terry Cannon Studios 1800 Rossville Ave., Suite 4, Chattanooga, TN 37408.
Arrangements are by Heritage Funeral Home & Crematory, Battlefield Parkway.
