ELMO – Tyler James Parker, 16, met the Creator on May 11, 2013, after being fatally assaulted while visiting in Seattle.

A member of the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes, he was born in Polson to James Parker and Kendra Kenmille on June 28, 1996. Raised on the Flathead Reservation, he went to school at Polson, Two Eagle and Mission.

He is survived by his parents, James Parker, Kendra and Phil Shourds; brothers and sisters, Sakali Joseph-McDougall, Donna Maxine Josette Parker, Nancy Cecilia Kenmille, Ellis Phillip Shourds, Kelleigh Lee Rose Shourds, Phillip Harvey Shourds Jr., Tena Hunt, Kenneth Isac Shourds, Raymond Clark Shourds, Shawn Curtis Shourds, Shayna Parker and James Parker Jr; grandparents, Donna Joseph and Eneas Kenmille, Barb and Henery Christie; numerous aunts and uncles from the Kenmille, Joseph and Shourds families, Frank and Mary Jo Parker, Glen Parker, Rose Parker, Josh Christie, Lucy Christie and Chandra Christie; as well as numerous cousins.

A Seattle Seahawk fan, Tyler was just beginning his life as an adult with his girlfriend Jacinda Kenmille and was forming those personal relationships that make him complete. He will be truly missed.

A traditional wake began Saturday at the Elmo Cultural Hall, where the rosary will be recited at 8 p.m. Sunday, May 19, and services will be at 10 a.m. Monday. Burial will follow at Elmo Cemetery. Condolences may be left at fosterfhandcrematory.com.
