Frank Russell Parker (July 1, 1939 – September 16, 2018) was an American television actor.
Parker was best known as Shawn Brady, husband to Caroline (Peggy McCay) on Days of Our Lives. He portrayed the character semi-regularly from 1983 to 2008, when he started having health issues and made the decision to leave. In order to write Parker's character out of the show, Days of Our Lives writers had Shawn die in February 2008 after giving up his oxygen mask to save his son, Bo (Peter Reckell), on a sabotaged airplane that was going down. Parker subsequently retired from acting the following month. He also had some small roles in Never Too Young, The Young and the Restless and General Hospital.
He had three daughters: Candace (1982–98) and twins Lindsay and Danielle (born 1984). His daughter Candace died in a car accident. He resided in Vacaville, California. On September 16, 2018, Parker died from complications of Parkinson's Disease and dementia.
