Tom Parker’s wife has revealed the date of her later husband’s funeral while also urging fans to line the streets for a “last goodbye.”

The Wanted singer Tom Parker died on March 30 after a battle with a form of brain cancer called glioblastoma. While Parker had fought this disease since his diagnosis in October 2020, fans and friends were heartbroken to learn the news earlier this year.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported in his care throughout, he fought until the very end. I’m forever proud of you,” his wife Kelsey said on Instagram shortly after his passing.

“Thomas Anthony Parker. There will be a private celebration of life on Wednesday 20th April,” Kelsey wrote on the social media platform. “We know many of you would like to pay your respects as well, so would love for you to join us in Petts Wood from 10am.”
