Malcolm Parker II 1930-2021

Monday, February 1st, 2021

Malcolm Parker II, our Chairman, passed away on January 24, 2021 following a courageous battle with Coronavirus. Our company has lost an anchor who spent over six of his nine decades dedicated to Parker Flavors. He worked tirelessly to continue a successful, family-owned and run business as his father and grandfather before him.

Colorfully warm and delightfully quirky, Malcolm brimmed with charm and enthusiasm for his passions. Chief among those were American history, big band and classical music, and lacrosse. An accomplished singer and member of the Handel Choir and various church choirs, his deep, baritone voice commanded attention, belying his small frame. He founded and played goalie for the St. Paul’s Alumni Lacrosse team. His sunny disposition and tenacity buoyed all who knew him. His legacy is indelible.
