My wife Berlice and I join the entire Free National Movement Family in
extending heartfelt condolences on the passing of MCM Cedric Parker,
K.C., senior partner in the law firm that bears his name. He is another
warrior in the illustrious history of the FNM that has gone on to his reward.

MCM Parker was one of that distinguished group of courageous men and
women who believed in the worthiness of the cause and dedicated
themselves to ensuring that the FNM became the government of The
Bahamas, when it meant literally putting one’s family and one’s life on the
line.

Mr. Parker demonstrated his commitment to the FNM in many ways,
including providing legal advice. That commitment was no more evident
than his agreement to stand as a candidate in the Holy Cross constituency
in 1982 and again in 1987.

The young boy from Abaco did well in his studies at the University of the
West Indies and later served as a teacher and Principal in the Family
Islands. He entered the legal profession, articling in the Chambers of the
Hon. Henry Bostwick, K.C… After being called to the bar, he established
the firm Cedric L. Parker & Co, specializing in the Law of Real Property,
Commercial Law, and Civil Litigation.

Throughout his legal career, MCM Parker distinguished himself as an
attorney’s attorney with his advice being sought by many senior and junior
colleagues alike. He was one of few attorneys who represented clients in
the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal, and the Privy Council.

His outstanding acumen in the practice of law earned him an appointment
as Queen’s Counsel in 2018.

Not selfish in lending his time, talents and treasures in a social cause,
MCM Parker was a distinguished Past Master of Lodge St. David No. 1741
Scottish Constitution.

Cedric- an outstanding Bahamian who served our party and country well,
will be missed by his loving wife Josephine, his children and all of us in the
Free National Movement.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory!

Hon. Michael C. Pintard, M.P.
Leader of the Free National Movement
