Beau James Parker, 28, of Canton and Troy, started his journey home on Sunday, Sept. 6, 2020. He was born on Sept. 16, 1991 in Towanda, son of Lori A. (Bruce) Davis of Troy and Robert J. Parker of Canton. Beau was a 2010 graduate of Troy High School where he played football and wrestled. Beau always thrived at being the best at what he did, in high school his sights were focused on his big brother Brock to be the best wrestler he could be. During his adult years Beau had a variety of jobs which all were somehow related to construction. He got more pay out of the “thank you, good job or awesome work” than he did the check. Beau always did everything to the best of his ability to make his customers happy. After high school Beau had a passion for coaching kids, wrestling, football, baseball, softball, hunting (even though he could not hit a barn at 20 yds) and helping others. Beau loved the outdoors, he loved hunting and spent endless hours scouting and setting up his spot on the Bruce farm. He loved getting on his dirt bike and just taking off. He would be gone for hours and just return covered with mud and completely exhausted. If you asked him where he had been, he would just say on the mountain because he honestly had no clue where all he had been. Beau had a strong faith in his lord and savior. He always reminded those around him that it was not our job to judge. Beau always felt if you could help, you should. Beau had an extreme passion for making others laugh and feel like they belonged. He would do everything within his power to make people smile which might include a swooping lift off the ground bear hug, a loud “what’s up -explicit” to the stanky leg dance. Beau always found the good in someone and would do whatever it took to show them that they were better than what they were portraying themselves to be. When it came to family you really could not ask for a better member. He was always willing to help in either a physical or mental manner. If you were down on your luck, you would forget about your troubles long before he left.
