Cody A.B. Parker
Lebanon, N.H. — Cody A.B. Parker, 25, died early Wednesday morning, March 6, 2013, at his home after a year long battle with cancer. He was born March 15, 1987, in Lebanon, the son of Bruce and Julie (Bomhower) Parker. He grew up in Hartford, Vt. and attended Hartford High School. After high school Cody worked for a short time in construction and then later at Jiffy Lube in West Lebanon, N.H. For the past several years he has worked as a bundler at Dartmouth Printing Company in Lebanon. Because of his love for snowboarding he also kept a part time job at Whaleback Ski Area which entitled him to free riding when he wasn’t making snow.
When he was younger he was a member of the Boy Scouts of America. Cody absolutely loved the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, the shooting sports including archery, snowboarding, skateboarding, paintball and riding his dirt bike. He had many trophies in archery. In 1995, following the tragic loss of his father and younger brother in an automobile accident, the Hartford Rod and Gun Club gave Cody a life time honorary membership, a gift he cherished and used on a regular basis. Cody also enjoyed cooking. Most of all he loved spending time with his friends and family especially his two sons, Seth and Carter. He would give the shirt off his back if anyone asked him and will be remembered for all the help he gave friends and family alike.
He was predeceased by his father, Bruce and his brother, Curtis.
He is survived by his wife, Randi Hamel-Parker of Lebanon; two sons, Seth A. Hamel-Parker and Carter Hamel-Parker of Lebanon; his mother, Julie A. Bomhower of North Hartland, Vt.; his grandmother and step grandfather, Mary and Richard Labine of Middleburg, Fla.; his maternal grandfather, Harold Bomhower of Lebanon; Aunt Cheryl Welch of Hartford; Uncle and Aunt Steve and Tammy Bomhower of Hartford; cousins, Beau and Bree Bomhower of Hartford; his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Tammy and Randy “Panda” Severance of Hanover, N.H.; and Thomas Hamel of Enfield, N.H.
