Elvin Gray Parker Jr. passed away January 14, 2022, peacefully in his home surrounded by love at the age of 66, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. Elvin was born November 29, 1955, in Baltimore Maryland to Joyce Tyndall and Elvin Gray Parker Sr. Earning him the childhood nickname Junior that sticks to this day. At a young age he craved adventure and excitement which led him to join the U.S. Navy at the age of 18 where he served aboard the U.S.S. Hassayampa. Elvin moved to Colorado in the early 90’s and started his own painting business with a small van and a couple of ladders. In 1993 he met the love of his life, Christy and together they built a longstanding prominent painting business in the Telluride area. Elvin was a hard worker, go-getter, smooth talking guy with an unbreakable passion for life. He loved to have a good time with his family and friends. He enjoyed fishing, boating, jet skiing and of course some gambling when he could get away with it or should I say get someone to take up a wager and gamble with him. Elvin is survived by his devoted wife of 28 years Christy Parker, his daughter Brittany, his son Preston and three grandchildren Cadance, Tristan, and Taylor. He is further survived by his sister Alice Butler and two brothers, Jeff Cahoon and Richard Parker. Elvin was preceded in death by his mother Joyce Tyndall, nephew Ronnie Butler, brother-in-law, John Marble and his niece Lacey Steele. Elvin’s love of life did not come to an end with his death because he is surrounded by family and friends and loved ones who will continue to honor his legacy by living their lives to the fullest! A celebration of life is planned for January 29, 2022, at 11:00AM at the Redvale Community Center, 450 3575 Road, Redvale CO. Crippin Funeral Home is assisting Elvin’s Family.
