NEWPORT NEWS -
James Wallace Parker, Sr. peacefully passed away on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 in
his home surrounded by family. He was 75 years old.
Jimmy went on to serve like his father and grandfather before him, as a Newport News police officer, ultimately discovering his passion for criminal justice.
He graduated from William and Mary's Marshall-Wythe School of Law in 1977, after which he opened his own successful law firm.
One of his
favorite passions, and a sport he was able to enjoy with his son, was his time
spent behind the wheel at Langley Speedway, as the first NASCAR-licensed lawyer
to race in the nation.
Jimmy is preceded
in death by his son, James W. Parker, Jr.; his brother, Hinton E. Parker, Jr.
and his parents, Hinton and Virginia Parker.
Donations can be made in Jimmy's name to Fisher House Foundation, Inc., 12300 Twinbrook Pkwy. Suite 410, Rockville, MD 20852, www.fisherhouse.org.
Arrangements by Weymouth Funeral Home. View and post condolences on our online guestbook at dailypress.com/guestbooks.

Amazing grace! (how sweet
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!
Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
