“Got myself a better job and the Infiniti is fixed. It’s a good day.”
Parker Killian Moore posted that on his Facebook wall before going to Barberito’s, a restaurant in Warner Robins, Georgia where he worked as a shift leader. He wasn’t scheduled to work that night, but a friend had called and asked him if he could fill in for him. Parker’s car had just been repaired, and he’d picked it up earlier that day. He’d also just nailed an interview for a new job, which he was to start in just over a week. It was a good day.
Five hours after posting that, Parker was gone… shot and killed during an armed robbery at Barberito’s on the night of January 21, 2018.
We are broken, and we miss Parker – today, tomorrow, and forever.
Parker loved his family, friends, customers, animals (especially cats), the lake, soccer, hiking, music, photography, the color purple, history, video games, and being outdoors.
We want his light to shine on -- to help others reach their goals and dreams. We started this scholarship fund in Parker’s name to do that. The proceeds from this gofundme will be set up to award scholarships to students enrolled in institutions of higher learning who are pursuing a degree, certificate, or diploma in fields of study that would interest Parker. 100% of all funds collected--current and continuing--will be dispersed according to these guidelines.
We miss him so much, and we know that he would have loved having his name on something like this.
His friends said it best, “Parker was a beautiful soul with the purest, most gentle heart. He was one of those fires that burned brighter than the rest.”
Parker touched many people and brought joy and light wherever he went.
We love you, Parker.
