Anthony Earl Hartley Parker was born on February 18, 1971 to the proud parents Evelyn Riggins and Willie Earl Hartley. Anthony was raised in Seattle Washington with his mother and grandparents, Emma and T.Z Riggins Sr. until they passed. As a young boy, Booda was confident and loving with a great sense of humor and charm. He attended Leschi Elementary, Eckstein Middle School and Garfield High School in the Central District. Although Anthony was his mother’s only child, he grew up with so many older and younger cousins in which he loved so much and will be dearly missed by them all. No matter how many times he fell down, he got back up. Anthony always tried with strong conviction to do better, get better, and stay better. He was forever striving to conquer the obstacles he faced. If he had your back, you definitely knew it. One hundred percent of his family will have the memories of Booda’s sarcasm, silliness and unconditional love.
