Wee Engineer’s Parker passes away

Charlotte Parker, secretary/treasurer for Wee Engineer and wife of company cofounder Robert M. Parker Jr., passed away Feb. 21 from head injuries sustained in a fall. She was 66. According to her son and company vice president, Seth Parker, she will most be remembered for her spirit. “She was just a phenomenal person to be around. All the employees loved and adored her. Every time she walked through the door, she got the respect of everybody.”

A survivor of two heart transplants (1992 and 2003), Parker handled the company’s advertising and financial accounts and was a regular attendee of the Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo. She is survived by her husband of 45 years and their three children (Robert Daniel Parker, Dustine Ellen Chase and Seth Richard Parker). Founded in 1992, Wee Engineer of Dayton, Ind., builds vacuum trucks, portable restroom trailers and environmental equipment.
