Parker lived life large. His smile and joy for life poured out on the people around him. From the time Parker was little he loved to be on wheels –skateboarding was his passion. Parker enjoyed being on the water, whether it was wake surfing on Smith Lake or Boogie boarding at Redondo Beach. He also found a love for photography and film and aspired to learn Italian and travel to Italy to study abroad. He was a large part of Young Life in Franklin, Tennessee where he shared his love for Jesus in his community. Parker lived life to the fullest.
A celebration of life for Parker will be held at 11AM Friday at Church of the City Franklin. A reception to follow. In honor of Parker’s colorful spirit, the Nugent family asks anyone attending to wear bright colors (no black please).
As a remembrance of his love and talent in both of these areas, his family and friends are raising funds to establish the Parker Nugent Memorial Scholarship Fund. 100% of the funds raised will be used to fund a scholarship for a kid in need at Rocketown (rocketown.org) or a Centennial High School (Franklin, TN) senior continuing their education in film or photography. https://www.gofundme.com/f/parker-nugent-memorial-scholarship-fund?utm_medium=email&utm_source=product&utm_campaign=p_email%2B2300-co-team-welcome
