  7. My dearest Jack….where do I even start bro…..from the moment we met on our first day at Alinta we clicked. Our bond was strengthened when we ended.up sitting next to each other in the office. The girl talk we subjected you too and I will miss you saying “yeah the girls” haha. You weren’t just a colleague….you were my best friend and my adopted brother. I miss you beyond words and I can’t comprehend that you’re not going to be sitting next to me anymore. You were family to all of us in your work team. You were a rock not just for me but for us all. I cried on your shoulder man times and you were always there with support. Yiu will be missed dearly and I will look at your photo on my desk and in my phone with such good memories.
    Will never forget my bro….missed deep and thought of everyday.
    Love you so much and fly high bro xxxx

  8. Hey Hoppy!
    Firstly I’m going to miss your laugh it was one of a kind I’ve got some fond memories of our time together that I’ll keep with me. You had some wit about you regardless of what you were dealing with just to make others laugh.
    Most importantly you accepted people as they are and you never judged or discriminated them. Your character will live on in all of us Jack.
    P.S. Riley says; It’s sad to hear you’ve left us you were a funny bloke.
    I’ll see you soon up in (car) heaven.
    Bee & Riley xx

  11. Jack, what an absolute angel you were to me. You came into my life when I most needed a friend and were there for me at the drop of a hat any time I felt alone. Though our friendship was short, the time we spent talking about our problems, going for long drives jamming out in my car to forget our lives for a while, introducing you to the world of caramel iced latté’s that became your new addiction, helping you search for the perfect puppa dog to take care of you and have play dates with mine, and seeing your new found excitement to one day have a huge aquarium with ALL the fish after I took you to my favourite aquarium shop that day..naturally you wanted the biggest one they had! 😂 Ohh and the day we watched some old guy on a boat ramp playing a violin and singing sea shanty’s to the wind.. he spotted us watching and came over for a chat through the crack in the car window and he thought I was your wife 😂😂 you got the biggest kick out of that! I never heard the end of it 🤣🤣 ..Your presence filled a space in my life and held a light in my heart to get me through the darkness and I’m just sorry for not making sure you knew how much that meant to me before. I was so excited for the future of having you as a dear and close friend in my life. A very special friendship that had only just begun.. Please Rest happy and in peace Hoppy, you are more loved in this world than you ever thought was possible 💜xx

You were an amazing friend and would help out where ever you could. You had a true heart of gold brother, you are going to be missed deeply by me and so many others, so fly high and free of pain mate and untill we meet again, you will always be in all our hearts, farewell hoppy, we all miss you, xx

You are the most kindest person I’ve ever met and we truly have lost a legend. Only just a week ago we were messaging about when you called Alinta up and you got me on the other end of the phone. Who would have known this would be my last memory of you. Rest In Peace angel x

  23. Where to even start? I can’t put anything into words and is extremely hard to comprehend, you weren’t just a best mate you were a brother, family. You did everything you could do to help the people around you and expect nothing in return, we had a lot of good times together and always there for me when I needed help no matter what the situation, your mum raised what a gentleman should be, polite, loyal, friendly, respectful and a great personality. You fought hard throughout the years with pain and I could only imagine what that would be like. It was only the night before you passing we were talking about random shit and joking about you passing away as you did every time you were in hospital cause you had that morbid dark sense of humour, it doesn’t mean you had to take it literally this time, but you are now finally at peace and not suffering anymore. I will forever cherish the memories we shared, you didn’t deserve any of this and had a heart of gold, I’m honoured to have had the chance to be called your friend and just know you are loved by many people, you don’t realise just how many people’s lives you have impacted in a positive way. I’m glad I got the chance to see you one last time even if it was under the worse conditions possible, it was hard to see but I would have kicked myself if I didn’t, just waiting for you to pop your head up and say just got you guys, only fucking with you.

    It was a hard innings for you and now it’s time to go back to the pavilion to sit back, relax, drink some Jack’s untill it’s our time to come join you, make sure you have a Jack in hand for when we meet again and I know you will be watching over us all, to support us and help us although you’re not here physically, but in spirit that you have left behind in everyone’s hearts.
    Rest in peace Jack Hoppy Parker, always missed, never forgotten.

    Andrew Skehan June 29, 2022
  24. Jack, the world is a little bit sadder without you in it. I know if there’s a heaven you’re there. Not many people in this world is a pure radiation of kindness, however you were always there for others, even if they didn’t deserve it. I’m going to miss you terribly, and will look fondly of our memories together. I hope you’re kicking back with some sick tunes and a few cold ones. I admire how positive you were through everything – even with us messaging just 48 hours before you passed laughing at how you seem to radiate to hospital beds. You touched everyone around you, I’ll be holding our memories close. Love Claudia 🤍🕊

    “As long as hearts remember
    As long as hearts still care
    We do not part with those we love
    They’re with us everywhere” ✊✊✊

  25. My Best Mate, My Brother I don’t know what to say im shocked that your body checked you out so abruptly after all you have been through. We have had a lot of good crazy times together over the years and I will hold those memories with me forever. You had a heart of gold and always there for me like I was for you. You helped me through a lot of hard times. Until we meet again. Rest Easy Brother. I hope there is a lot of Bicardi 151 up there for you. Rest In Peace Brother Love ya.

  33. What had the most impact on me was a very young Jack facing the most traumatic surgery a young boy can face when he had a rib removed that was then fused to his spine. His bravery brought tears to my eyes. All I can remember is enormous angelic blue eyes managing the pain and trauma of the surgery without complaint. This bravery was again etched when Jack was told he needed his leg amputated. Each blow he was dealt was managed with such grace. Jack had a lot to teach us. Love you Jackxxx.

    Anne Steet July 2, 2022
  34. Jack you were a very special, patient boy. I can’t believe that a 92 year old like me is still here when a young 32 year old is taken so early. I know you are at peace now.
    Love Nona xxxx

    Marion Hebden July 2, 2022
  35. I’m still lost for words brother. Not a day will go by when I don’t think of you, I’ll miss telling you all my bullshit and I’ll miss you telling me, It’ll all work out Narni. I love you my brother, I will keep my promise and will always look after your mum xo

  37. We are so sad! What an absolute legend and great friend. One of the toughest people we know always so positive and happy to have around.
    We will never forget our days at the lake, especially the day we built you a deck chair on skis and you pulled it off!
    You will be missed my great friend so devastated that you have left us, you have achieved so much and especially with everything you have been challenged with through your entire life.
    Love Jake, Maree, Charlie, Bella & Jamie

    Jake & Maree Brand July 2, 2022
  38. Jack, I wish we had more time together. I was so shocked and sad to hear of your passing. I will always cherish and remember all our times together with all the cousins. You have always touched the lives of everyone around you and that will carry on.

  47. Dear Jack,
    So sad to hear of your passing, such a kind, happy, positive and polite young boy.
    You have grown into a fine young man your mum must be so proud.
    It was always a joy to see you all grown up. We would laugh and remember the old times at Coonie growing up with Jake Sam and Phoebe.
    You will be in our thoughts often Jack, a Fine young man.
    All my love and deepest sympathy to you dear Mandy.

    Annie Brand July 3, 2022
  48. To my brother Jack, it’s hard to talk about you because it’s so true that none of us deserved a brother or a friend like you. From day one I already knew just how kind hearted and special you really were and from that time you left your mark on my heart. I love you dearly brother and I damn sure as hell would say something if they said anything bad about you. Life is really missing something people are broken and lost, hiding their emotions behind a bottle because they just can’t believe your gone. I look at mum and I think of you, I want to cry but I feel I have to hold back so your mum doesn’t buckle. She’s lost brother you are her world and never a day went past that you were any less. My son gave me a title of being superman my brother but since knowing you the only person that can wear that S on their chest is you brother. I’m missing you brother and today we send you off to a place the gods will welcome you with open arms because they know that the heavens need an angel like you. Spreading your wings and flying like you always deserved💙 We should all take note of just how strong you are brother and how kind and whole hearted you were and just then the world would be a better place. Long Live King Jack

  49. Jack always took the time to say hello and answer any questions I had. The workplace was better when he was in the office. I am grateful for the conversations I had in the short time I have been part of the Alinta family.

  51. Jack I still remember the night in Traralgon you showed me your love of life and never give up spirit. We were already friends and I was waiting to play a show and before doors opened I peaked outside and there you were 6w post op on crutches waiting to be let inside. I could not believe my eyes, your courage was tremendous!! Everyone that was in the Gipps heavy music scene will never forget your energy brother, thanks for all you gave, much love!!

    Josh Cassidy July 4, 2022
  52. I’m so grateful I met you in such a short time you created an impact. God bless you. Your soul is now at rest

    Libby Bell July 4, 2022
  53. I think I speak for everyone at Alinta Morwell when I say you will be greatly missed. Your spark would light up the office even on the darkest of days.

    A spark taken away far to soon. Fly high mate, never forgotten.

    Dan Scott July 4, 2022
  54. Jack.
    You enriched so many lives in your short 32 years.

    We’ve known you since you were 3 years old and our family has many wonderful memories of carefree childhood days down by the lake.

    Even though you endured many major operations during these times, you always bounced back each time and joined the “crew” again. Such amazing resilience!

    In your later teenage years, learning to drive, I was continually impressed by your careful competence and I don’t ever remember being nervous in the
    passenger seat, whilst being one of your “Learner Licensed Passengers” !

    Fly free Jack.
    Snow-ski, sail, paraglide (we’ll never forget that day!), swim, drive, love and know that you will always be in our hearts.

    Until we all see you again on the other side, you were loved and will always remain in our hearts.

    Condolences and love to Manda and your whole extended family.

    From the Reynolds family.
