Odell Parker LEVELLAND- Odell Parker, 80, of Levelland, entered into his heavenly rest on November 20, 2012. Born on September 27, 1932 in McLennan County, Texas, he was the son of E.J. and Bessie Wells Parker. Odell's childhood years were spent in Brownwood, Littlefield, and in Colorado. He married Doris Morrow on May 21, 1954 in Clovis, NM, and they moved to Hockley County in 1955. Odell worked diligently for many years as a cotton farmer and cattle rancher in Levelland. He accepted Jesus as his Savior in 1963 and was a member of the Fairview Baptist Church. An avid fisherman, hunter and outdoorsman, his greatest joy was in spending time with his family and supporting them in every way possible. Odell's devotion to family was unwavering. Odell is survived by his daughter, Phyllis Berg and her husband, Bob of Fort Worth; grandson, Christopher Berg of Fort Worth; granddaughter, Stephanie Berg of Irving; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
