It is with great sadness that we learned today of the untimely passing of Andy Parker, 'Parky'.
Parky had been involved with Triathlon on the Island for 8 years and was one of the Club's real characters. Having dabbled with a few triathlons himself as a competitor, he turned his attention to supporting his son Rob competing at Ironman distance races. He became the Club's principal referee 5 years ago, bringing his own unique mix of enthusiasm, encouragement & discipline to the local events. Parky worked with many local athletes on their training programmes through his Gym & Tonic business and would often be found offering support to his wide network of friends and clients at many events around the Island.
The Club offers its sincere condolences to his wife Diane and sons Robert & James, and all his family. He will be very sadly missed.
Andrew Parker - died 26th July 2016
The Celebration of Andrew’s Life will be at Santon Church on Thursday 11th of August at 1pm and after at Gill’s opposite the church.
