Shad Parker

Shad Wayne Parker, 37, of Charleston, formerly of Effingham, died Monday, Aug. 19, 2013.

A memorial service will be at 7 p.m. Friday at Bauer Funeral Home, Effingham. A private burial will be held at a later date.

For those who wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a trust fund for his daughter, Kaitlyn Parker, at Crossroads Bank in Effingham. Any written memories of Shad would be cherished and appreciated.

Shad was born May 4, 1976, in Charleston, the son of Robin (Endebrock) Kralman and Robert (Doc) Kralman of Effingham, and the late Barry Parker and Becky Parker, of Charleston. Shad was a wonderful father to his daughter, Kaitlyn. They had many, many sweet times, their identical blue eyes twinkling, as they laughed together. He was an accomplished guitarist who spent many hours mastering complex pieces which moved his listeners. Some of his greatest joys were spending time with family and playing guitar with his uncles. He also had a love of reading, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, the Ramones, Bob Dylan and classical music. He was a skilled professional as the Supervisor of Edgar County Probation, who had a strong conviction in ‘second chances’ and restoration for those transitioning back into a new life. Shad was soft spoken, hard-working, intelligent, and witty, and he will be missed by so many.

Shad is survived by his daughter, Kaitlyn Parker, Mattoon; his mother, Robin (Endebrock) Kralman and stepfather, Robert (Doc) Kralman of Effingham; stepmother, Becky Parker of Charleston; grandmother, Aina Endebrock of Effingham; brother, Shane Parker and wife, Tracy of Kansas; sister, Kaci (Parker) Miles and husband, Jeff of Oklahoma; sister, Kelli Kralman of Champaign; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Barry Parker; grandparents, Wayne and Mary Parker; and grandfather, Wayne (Chic) Endebrock.
