Parker, Paul Andrew, 62, of Reidsville, NC passed from this life to the next on Friday, July 21, 2023, at the Gibson House Residential Hospice of Rockingham County after a long illness.

Born in Albany, NY, Andy graduated with Honors from Bethlehem Central High School.

Andy worked in the automotive and satellite television industries for many years and ultimately opened his own business, American Satellite, in Knoxville.

He was thereafter a staff member at the REMMSCO substance abuse recovery homes in Reidsville for many years. All who knew Andy found him to be a fun-loving, very caring person who loved his Heavenly Father, music, helping others, the outdoors, and AA.

He leaves to cherish his memories his father Robert Parker, stepmother Shirley Parker, son Dr. Ben Cochran, daughter-in-law Cassie Cochran, grandchildren Kaylee, Benson, Emmalyn and Charlie, siblings Cindy, David, Jon and Tina, nieces Kelly and Amber, nephew Patrick, dearest friend Kathleen Simpson, and many, many church and AA friends.
