With a heavy heart we announce the passing of Dennis Roy Parker on March 26, 2021. He is survived by his wife Liz, 3 children Anne (Keith) Medvar, Karen Baker, Tait (Tara) Parker, stepson Zachary Mulcahy, and 6 grandchildren.
Dennis was a dedicated family practice doctor in Phoenix for over 40 years. He took great pride in buying his own practice in the area he was proud to serve. He was awarded the prestigious Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association for his dedication to his patients.
One of his great passions was the Arizona wilderness where he was a volunteer for search and rescue as well as an avid hunter. He loved the great outdoors.
Dennis will be remembered for his love of winning, dining, and socializing. He was never without a dirty joke to tell and could never be called boring. He was always the life of the party and will be missed by all.
A private service will be held for family only. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in his name to PBS or the Phoenix Art Museum.

Dennis was a great mentor when we first arrived at PGH. We clicked the moment we met. A physician who knew how to care for people. He always had smile when we met. God Bless you Dennis. You will not be forgotten.

Was always a great guy. You could always depend on Dennis for an honest answer and good advice whether politically correct or not. Was great to me when I was an intern. Could always bring a smile to your face no matter what the circumstances. And he was loved by his patients. He will be missed.
