Date of Death

February 6, 2022

Parker Henry Bainter passed away in the arms of his loving parents just five days shy of his 6-month birthday. Parker was the sweetest boy who loved holding hands, his green “chup” (pacifier), wearing tie-dye, and raising his eyebrows with a gummy smile that lit up his face. He endured four different hospital stays totaling 75 days. Parker is survived by his parents, Lindsey Hartsough Bainter (Santa Barbara, CA) and Zachary Bainter (Hollister, CA), maternal grandparents, Renèe and Bruce Hartsough, fraternal grandparents, Diane and Donald Smith III, Vincent Bainter, his uncles and aunt, cousins and his two puppies, Piper and Pierre. He was preceded in death by his cousin, Landry Duran.
Parker’s impact on the world will be long-lasting. His parents are currently establishing the Parker H. Bainter Foundation, which will be a force of kindness driven by compassion and a willingness to do good for others.
