Death – Obituary

A local transient was bludgeoned to death at Upland Skatepark on Dec. 21 by a man who was quickly arrested, the Upland Police Department said Monday, Dec. 27.

The San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Gian Gille Chavez, 26. Upland police Lt. Anthony Kabayan said Chavez has family in the High Desert.

Chavez was sitting at the park at 1299 San Bernardino Road just after 3 p.m. when Keyjuan Lamar Parker, 36, approached him and hit him with something similar to rebar, Kabayan said. Chavez was pronounced dead at San Antonio Regional Hospital at 3:24 p.m., the coroner said.

Parker was arrested within minutes after the attack.

“We don’t have much of a motive at this time,” Kabayan said.

Parker was booked into West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga on suspicion of murder and assault with a deadly weapon. Bail was set at $500,000, jail records show. Parker is from Brawley in Imperial County but was apparently staying with a relative in Upland, Kabayan said.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
