PARKER, Richard Watson
... It is our painful dity to-day to announce the death of Mr Richard Watson Parker, storekeeper, of Grove road, which occurred suddenly this morning. The deceased was engaged with Mr W. Mills, one of his employees, turning hay in his paddock in Hutcheson street. They were working at opposite ends of a row, intending to meet in the middle of the row, and on looking up Mr Mills saw that Mr Parker had fallen; and found on going over to him that he was quite dead. The cause of death was heart disease. Deceased was sixty-four years of age on the 4th inst., and had not been ailing to the time of his death. Yesterday he was out and about as usual.
Mr Parker first arrived in Marlborough in 1865 from Australia, and about 1866 embarked in partnersihp with his brother, Mr W. B. Parker, in the business of general storekeeper. The partnership was dissolved in 1883, the deceased keeping on the business, in which he has continued up to the present time. He was also connected as a contractor with the formation of the Blenheim-Awatere railway, but unfortunately, the venture did not turn out successfully.
Mr Parker did not actively engage in local politics, although he served two terms of office on the local River Board, during the second term occupying the office of Chairman of the Board. He was highly esteemed and respected for his many good qualities by a large circle of friends, who will extend their hearty sympathy to his widow and family of seven daughters in their sad bereavement.
In consequence of Mr Parker's death the social to have been held in Wesley hall on Wednesday evening, and also the meeting of the W.C.T.U. to-morrow, have been postponed

Richard is buried Plot 7, Block 12 at Omaka Cemetery
