Dr.  Frank P. Parisi Obituary
Dr. Frank P. Parisi, 97, passed away peacefully at Kingsway Arms in Schenectady, NY on June 9, 2018.Born on September 22, 1920, he was the son of the late Carmine A. Parisi and Mary C. (nee Marra) Parisi. Born in New York City, but raised in Schenectady, Frank is a graduate of Siena College and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.He made his living as a dentist, which is fitting, because a dentist's job is to make your teeth clean and white for when you smile, and many would agree that he alone could put a smile on anyone's face. He used to do much of his dentistry work pro bono, because he believed everyone deserved good dental care.Frank was predeceased by his wife, Anna (nee Azar) Parisi, with whom he spent 44 wonderful years of martial bliss.He was a World War II veteran, a longtime member of the former Our Lady of Fatima Church parish, a respected dentist and a well recognized member of the community, but more than anything he was a loving, caring son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather. His beautiful life will be remembered by his daughter, Patti Azar Van Valkenburgh of Schenectady; and son, Richard Azar of Tupper Lake; his grandchildren, Michael (Vanessa) Van Valkenburgh, Paul (Nina) Van Valkenburgh, Cheryl Van Valkenburgh, Dr. Suzanne (Dr. Justin) Van Valkenburgh Myers, James Van Valkenburgh, Elizabeth Azar, Joseph Azar and Gabrielle Provost; and his great-grandchildren, Samantha, Holly, Allison and Paul Van Valkenburgh.In addition to his parents and wife, he was predeceased by brothers, Joseph and George; and sisters, Anna and Emma.The family would like to thank Kingsway Arms Nursing Home for the exceptional care they showed Frank in his last years.Visitation will be held Tuesday, 5 to 7 p.m. at Griswold Funeral Home, 1867 State St., Schenectady.A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at St. Kateri Tekakwitha Parish, 2216 Rosa Rd., Schenectady.
