MARQUETTE, Mich. -Alan "Al" Delbert Parker, 55, of 1536 W. Ridge St., Marquette died at Marquette General Hospital November 9, 2012 after a life long struggle with Fabry's Disease, which afflicted two of Al's brothers who preceded him in death. Al received the gift of life 22 years ago when his sister, Bonnie, selflessly donated a kidney to him. Words cannot express how grateful Al was for this extraordinary gift and for all the support provided by his family. Spending holidays with family were some of Al's fondest memories, especially Independence Day. Al always had a lighter ready to participate in the annual Parker fireworks show.
