Parker Waymon Pace, 83, husband of Anne R. Pace of Brevard, NC, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, June 19, 2020. He was home surrounded by his family.

Born in Rocky Bottom, SC, he was the son of the late Milton C. Pace and Esther A. Pace.

Parker was a member of Pisgah Forest Baptist Church for over 50 years where he served as a Deacon, Sunday School Teacher, and on many committees. He retired from Ecusta (P.H. Glatfelter) after 42 years of service. Parker was a graduate of Pickens High School and had lived in Brevard since 1957. He was a member of the Dunn’s Rock Masonic Lodge and Oasis Shriners. In addition to his love of golf and Clemson Football he was a loving father and grandfather.

Parker loved his wife, loved his family, and loved his church. He seldom missed a chance to watch Brevard football and basketball, especially when his grandson was playing or coaching. Parker was proud of his growing family and lit up when he got to hold his grandchildren. As they grew older, he was always interested in exchanging good stories.

In addition to his loving wife of 63 years, he is survived by daughters, Christi Pace Hinkle(Steve) and Cynthia “Cindy” Pace Owen(Randy), four grandchildren, Jenny Elliott(Chris) of Nashville, TN, David Hinkle(Kara) of Charlotte, NC, Jonathan Owen(Ashley) of Brevard, and Brad Hinkle of Durham; seven great grandchildren, Kennedy and Titus Owen, Maddie, Maya, and Michael Elliott, Ryan and Drew Hinkle; one special adopted daughter, Tabitha Dobbins; one sister, Linda Reeves of Charleston, SC; one brother, Bill Pace of Brevard.

The service will be broadcast live on 101.9 FM for those who prefer to participate from their car in the parking lot. Interment will follow at Blue Ridge Gardens of Memory immediately following the service.

Anne, my heart goes out to you and your precious family during this difficult time. Parker was always there with a smile and handshake all the thirty years of me and my family attending Pisgah Forest Baptist Church. Such special memories! Hugs and prayers to all of you!

Dear Ann and family. I know you must have mixed feelings at Parker's passing - much sadness at loosing him, but also relief that he is no longer having to endure what he has been going through in recent times. I celebrate the years of being a co-worker and friend of Parker. He was a man always true to his faith, his family and his friends, and will be missed by many. His skills as a man who seemed able to do most anything were more than matched by his genuine concern and love of those around him. He will be much missed by the many who have had the privilege of sharing part of their lives with him. My prayers are with him, you and all of his family.

It is hard to know where to begin but to always first say how I am so thankful for the Pace family as a whole being in my life. Blessings upon blessings always came my way because Parker led this family in God's way and one thing about you all Parker's smiles and love for people will live through you all. Parker always made me feel so welcome at Pisgah Forest Baptist Church first with his bear hugs, his smiles and always asking about my family. Parker was a good listener with wise advice when I needed it the most. Parker's love for the Lord lives on in all the people's lives he touched. I know he did mine. Parker will be greatly missed and always loved by the Robinson family. We love you! Carolyn Robinson

John 14:1-4
[1]Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
[2]In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
[3]And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
[4]And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

I still get the Transylvania Times and saw the news of Parker's passing in the online version of the news. My sincere condolences to Ann, Christi, and Cindy and their extended families.
