Parker Collen Wagar passed away on Friday, September 30, 2022. He was born on October 3, 1999, in Austell, GA, a son of Mark and Kelly Garrett Wagar.
Parker was christened after birth and later baptized. He explored his faith thru a consistent study of the bible. Parker practiced what he studied by showing an attitude of forgiveness and humility. His love for family and friends was only surpassed by his love for Lord.
From a very early age, it became apparent that Parker loved people and he loved his family. He never met a stranger. Once you met Parker, you knew you had a faithful, kind, and caring friend. Parker was all about having a servant attitude with anyone he met. His passion for serving his friends and family was always front of mind. He loved "Movie Time" with family and had an innate ability to pick out the best movies to watch. At the dinner table, Parker had yet another passion, Mashed Potatoes! His plate was always full and no seconds for anyone. His passion for Mashed Potatoes may have been matched by his love of Taco Salad. We cannot forget his love for Robin's stir fry and biscuits and gravy. No one knows for sure how he could consume so much!
The Wager family all loved animals but Parker, like everything else, took it to another level. Several years ago he became enamored with Koi fish. Ambitious and full of energy, Parker dug a hole in the backyard and created a Koi Pond. From this experience grew an interest in gardening. The Koi and pond continue to this day! Cayden and Max, two Great Danes, belonged to Parker. He would say, "Max is my best friend". Parker loved being outdoors with his Great Danes and he loved going to the lake where he would Jet Ski and go tubing. Any spare time he had to himself usually meant he was fishing, biking, or working out. Parker loved going to see family in Texas. He loved him some Papa Garrett and he could not wait to get to Glamma's farm and ride on Papa Joe's tractor.
Parker was not only passionate for family and friends, but his love of speed always had him closely connected with cars, motorcycles, and Motorcross. Yes, he had a need for speed, he was a thrill seeker, adventure chaser, and had a fearless spirit! Second place was not an option for Parker!
