Long-time Sierra Madre 
resident Mike Parker 
passed away on March 30, 
2017. He was 75. Mike 
was born in Selborne, 
East Hampshire England 
on May 25, 1941. He 
spent his childhood in 
England during WWII 
and the post-war period. 
After completing his 
schooling, Mike worked 
on a farm and then for 2 
years as a police officer, 
or “Bobbie”, in London. 
He later joined Morphy 
Richards, a recreational 
vehicle company, that transferred him to Elkhart Indiana, and 
then to Los Angeles. While in California Mike met his 
future wife Gerd. In 1976, they were married and settled in 
Sierra Madre. In 1990, he opened a home repair business, 
which he successfully operated for the next 20 years. Also in 
1990, Mike joined the all-volunteer Sierra Madre Search and 
Rescue Team, where he was very active for 18 years, serving as 
a Crew Chief, Operations Leader, and member of the Board of 
Directors. After retirement, Mike and Gerd enjoyed frequent 
excursions with their dog in their 5th wheel trailer in the US 
and other travel abroad. 

 Mike is survived by his wife Gerd, his son Charlie, daughter-
in-law Kelly and two granddaughters: Kimberly (Kim) 
and Felicity (Libby). The family asks that in lieu of flowers 
contributions be made in memory of Mike to the Sierra Madre 
Search and Rescue Team, PO Box 24, Sierra Madre, 91025, or
