Paul F. Parisi, age 69, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 surrounded by his wife and his children after a valiant battle with Glioblastoma. Paul was born March 7, 1951 in Everett, Massachusetts to Attorney Michael and Concetta (Tricomi) Parisi.
Paul was a graduate of Everett High School and Northeastern University. He was a football standout, known for holding rushing records and on the All Scholastic team.
Paul worked in the trucking industry and the Everett Public Schools, retiring to NH in 2015.
Paul loved spending time with his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews especially in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, cooking, fishing, hunting, camping and being in nature. His dog Marlow, always by his side, was his furry companion for 11 years.
Paul and his wife Judy enjoyed traveling and Civil War Reenactments, spending time with the 28th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment Irish Brigade, the 9th Massachusetts and 17th Virginia, where they re-enacted from the hallowed grounds of Gettysburg 150th Pickett’s Charge to the historic communities all across New England. Paul was very proud of the small role he had in the 2003 movie Gods & Generals, where he ran across the field at Fredericksburg carrying the Irish Brigade flag.
Paul leaves his loving wife, Judy (Fitzpatrick) Parisi, his mother, Concetta (Tricomi) Parisi, and his four children, Jodi (John) Montalbano, Paul (Tamara) Parisi, Michael (Kristina) Parisi and Nicole (Keith) O’Donnell, and his 10 grandchildren, John, Ava, Ella, Max, Jack, Michael, Kyle, Victoria, Marygrace and Evelyn.
