Funeral Costs for Parker Sams

With such sadness and pain I’m creating a “gofundme” for not only a coworker, but a friend as well. Before I get into what kind of an amazing person he was, I want to share the reason behind why this is being made. Parker Sams, 22 years young, is no longer with us! He was killed on March 31st 2018 by a coward who committed such an evil act on him. Parker was out Friday night, March 30th, with friends and his loved ones when a fight broke out at a party they were attending. When he and friends rushed to get out of harms way, multiple shots were fired in a parking lot as they tried to escape the violence that was developing inside. When Parker realized his girlfriend wasn’t by his side he immediately ran to search for her. That is when Parker, so innocently, was struck by one of the bullets fired and suffered an injury to the head. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he died from the injury he suffered. Such a senseless and selfish act, took away such an amazing young soul! Parker was taken from us incredibly too soon! He not only left behind his loved ones and friends, but his 7 month old daughter as well! His 7 month old daughter, who he loved more than anything in this world will now grow up without her father! All because some coward decided to open fire on a crowd of people that night.

Parker who I met a few years ago, worked at UPS in Saddle Brook. He drove a irreg cart around the building which had oversized/heavy packages that couldn’t go on the conveyor belts. He loved his job and the people there so much. You knew when it was Parker because he’d always make sure you heard that it was him coming around! He’d either yell your name or yell something to make sure everyone knew it was him pulling up with packages! He was either coming to make jokes and laugh with this really one of a kind laugh he had. Or he was gonna tell you he wasn’t gonna take a package to another belt! Lol! But, you were NEVER gonna question how hard that kid worked though. Even with an ego bigger than the size of a planet, the kid worked hard Always came in early and always left late! He’d even leave after some supervisors, because that’s just who he was! Excellent attendance and a leader at his position, that’s who I know Parker to be! There’s not a person in that building that will tell you otherwise either! Even though Parker left us too soon, the amount of memories and laughs we’ve all shared together will last forever! He had such a huge heart and always put a smile on everyone’s face! He’s impacted all our lives so much and he will be truly missed!

We’ve set this up because we’d like to raise money for his daughter and also help pay for the costs of the soon to be expensive funeral. We’re hoping you can contribute any amount if possible. We asked his mother for permission to make this and I’m certain she and his family will be extremely grateful for your donations! This is such a hard time right now and our goal is to try and relieve some of the pain they’re going through. Thank you!

If you have any questions or would like to donate in other ways to the family of Parker Sams please contact me.
