After many years of problems with his heart, Parker suffered a massive heart attack. He was in the Gunnison Valley Hospital for 18 days before he died. Although being in a lot of pain, he never complained, but instead fought a good fight, until he fell into a coma for several hours before he died. His wife and many family members kept a constant vigil at his bedside. His son Don was at his bed side when he briefly opened his eyes, greeted Don with "Hi Don, how are you?", immediatly took his last breath and died. Time of death was 7:25p.m. on May 3, 1978. Park was 73 years old.
