Michael Maurice Parker
Michael Maurice Parker, 74, of La Crosse, passed away peacefully on November 11, 2020 at home with his wife by his side.
He was born on March 1, 1946 to Alton Parker and Dorothy Davis. He married Ellen (Rhomberg) Nordstrom Parker on February 14, 1997 in New Orleans.
Mike loved smoking meat, spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, and canoeing. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, and he was a very easy-going man with a great sense of humor. He was a wonderful friend who would give the shirt off his own back; he was a gentle, kind soul. Mike enjoyed traveling and visiting family across the country.
He is survived by his wife, Ellen (Rhomberg) Nordstrom Parker; sons, Michael Stephen Parker, Peter (Elizabeth) Michael Parker; step-sons, Wyatt (Liza) Scott Nordstrom; Richard (Lisa) Nordstrom, and Grant Nordstrom; step-daughters, Nikki (Dave) Nordstrom Weinberger and Joyce Elsroad; many grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Michael was preceded in death by his father, Alton Parker Jr. and his mother, Dorothy (Davis) Lunsford.
Bless Gundersen Hospice for their extremely wonderful care.
