Parker William Nash

November 12, 1994 — May 6, 2022

Parker William Nash, of Fort Hood, TX, loving father, husband, son, and soldier entered heaven on May 6th, 2022, at the age of 27 years. He will be missed and cherished by his wife of four years, Yuliya, his son, Danya, his parents Tolbert and Cay Cannon Nash, his sister Rebecca Nash and nephew William Nash, his parents-in-law Sergei and Olga Antipenko, his brother-in-law Vitalii Antipenko and nephew Kirill Antipenko, his uncle Sam Cannon, wife Jamie, and cousins Jordan Johnson, wife Alby, Riley & Toby, his aunt Connie Congleton, husband Jon, and cousins Emerson, Calvin & Nathan, and his grandmothers Carolyn Cannon and Marie Nash as well as numerous other relatives and friends. Parker was preceded in death by his grandfathers William S. Cannon and Tolbert Nash, Jr.

Parker was born on November 12th, 1994, in The Woodlands, TX. He was raised in Huntsville, TX, and graduated from Huntsville High School in 2013. Parker was a devoted family man and friend. He was always there for anyone that needed his help. He was also an avid reader and had many passions including history, music, studying cultures & languages, travel, and serving his country! He especially loved to tell jokes and enjoyed making people laugh. His love of languages, cultures, and people is what drove him to learn multiple languages and to travel the world from Europe to Asia landing in his adopted country of Kyrgyzstan. Parker met his soulmate Yuliya Antipenko in Austin, TX, while visiting The Russian House and married in College Station, TX, one year later. Parker became the proud father of a son, Danya Antipenko Nash, in February 2019. Parker and Danya were best friends and spent every possible minute together. For fun, they often dressed alike. Danya was Parker’s little “Copy, Paste.” Parker had so many dreams for the future. He wanted to take his family to Disney World, Washington D.C, Europe, Thailand, and Canada. He wanted to learn Spanish, attend Air Assault school, and possibly pursue another career in law enforcement. Parker loved his country (especially Texas) and as a young boy, he dreamed of joining the Army. This inspired him to attend Texas A&M University where he was a 4-year member of the Corps of Cadets, Companies I-1 and D-2. Parker graduated from Texas A&M in December 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies. He commissioned into the United States Army as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Chemical Corps branch. Parker loved the Army and proudly served his country until his death.
