Obituary

Alphonso Lafadrian Parker, born on February 21, 1973, to the union of William Thomas Parker and Vera Jean Parker in Chicago, Illinois, demonstrated the ability to draw architectural structures while playing alone. He and his uncles, Oscar and Albert, also enjoyed “break dancing,” once a er pouring blue paint all over the cardboard dance oor in his bedroom at the young age of nine years old (the  rst Blue Man Group). Alphonso, fondly known as Fagge to family and friends, confessed his faith in Jesus Christ at the age of 11 years old and was baptised at Hopewell M.B. Church, 6600 S. Hermitage Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60636. Alphonso "Fagge" attended Bradwell, O’Kee e, and O’Toole Chicago Elementary Schools. He graduated eighth grade from Willa Catha Elementary school. He opted to pursue his working career immediately a er elementary school, where he was employed and quickly promoted to the management team at Wendy’s. Fagge went on to obtain his GED and attended Dawson Skill Center, where he received general construction training. He also attended Kennedy King College for several semesters. Fagge had an “old soul,” and he loved hard and deep all his life. He was a protector of his family and friends and a provider (Lil Daddy) to his immediate family at a very young age. Fagge was also a caregiver to the many sick and shut-in friends and family members he crossed paths with up to the end of his life.  at hard, deep love Fagge had for his family and friends lead him to develop a great sense of humor! His presence will be momentously missed by many people. In 2020, he became a successful entrepreneur when Blac Santa was founded!
