Obituary for Gordon Parker McGill

September 11, 1982 - October 15, 2018
Austin, Texas | Age 36


Gordon Parker McGill died peacefully at home in Austin on Monday, October 15, 2018. Parker was a beloved son, brother and friend to many. He was born in Austin, Texas on September 11, 1982 to Charmaine Denius McGill and J. Gordon McGill.

Parker attended Saint Andrew's Episcopal School in Austin from first grade until he graduated from Middle School in 1997 and then went on to graduate high school from the Cascade School in Redding, California in 2001. Parker was Cascade's Outstanding Scholar his senior year. Parker attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas where he graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Economics with Finance Applications in August 2009.

After graduation, Parker worked at UBS Financial Services in Chicago, Illinois where he was a financial consultant in wealth management. After 3 frigid Chicago winters, Parker said so long to "Da Bears," and returned home to Austin where he worked with family investments, the Cain Foundation, and resumed a lifetime of supporting his favorite team, the Texas Longhorns.

As a child, Parker loved camping and being outdoors. He attended Camp Longhorn in Burnet, Texas from 1992-1994 and Keewaydin Camp at Lake Temagami, Ontario, Canada as a camper from 1997-1999 and as a counselor in 2006. Parker was the only camper at age 16 to be asked to go on the 700 mile canoe trek to the Hudson Bay.

Parker was always filled with a loving spirit no matter what the occasion or the difficulty. He always greeted everyone with a smile and with the spirit of a happy child. As it says in Romans "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God."

Survivors include his parents, Charmaine Denius McGill and J. Gordon McGill of Austin; his grandmother Mrs. Ruth Gordon McGill of Bryan; his maternal aunt and uncle, Beth and F. Wofford Denius of Los Angeles, California; his aunt Ruth G. McGill, M.D. of Bryan; and his cousin, Reagan Denius of Los Angeles, California. He also leaves behind a multitude of extended family and beloved friends. Parker was predeceased by his brother, Franklin Wofford McGill, his maternal grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Franklin W. Denius, and his paternal grandfather, Dr. A.G. McGill.
