Henry was born to the later Everett and Myrtle (Schramm) Parker in Bellaire, OH on March 2, 1929.
Lovingly known as Uncle Henry, he enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Henry was also an avid sports fan cheering on, and sometimes yelling at, the Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Steelers and WVU Mountaineers.
Having lived his life blind, Henry never let that slow him down which was an inspiration to all who knew him. He and his loving, late wife (2015) of forty seven (47) years , Genevieve, lived life to the very fullest.
In addition to his parents, Henry is preceded in death by his loving wife, Gevevieve (Dunlap) Parker and sisters, Enola Riggs, Pauline Kleyman and Josephine Mitchem.
Left to cherish the memory of Uncle Henry are his devoted nieces and nephews; Dennis Payton, Rev. Terry Endsley, Richard Payton, Michael Payton, Jerry Endsley, Debbie Lufft and Eveline Dami as well as many great nieces and nephews and friends.
Family and friends will be received Saturday, November 5, 2022 from 10:00 am until the time of service at 11:00 am at Altmeyer Funeral Home 1400 Eoff Street Wheeling, WV 26003 with Rev. Terry Endsley presiding.
