Basil Howard Parker

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved brother, son, uncle and dear friend. Basil passed away peacefully in his home in Black Creek, B.C.

Basil was born and grew up in Kentville, Nova Scotia. He has also resided in PEI, Vancouver, Arizona and Vancouver Island.

Basil was a chef who was passionate about food and cooking, which led him to his budding “Spice Cowboy” business. Basil was best known for his sense of humour and unforgettable laugh. He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered.
