ROLLINSFORD – Frank "Pup" C. Parshley, 85, of General John Sullivan Way died Friday February 15, 2013 at his home.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was born November 21, 1927 in Farmington, the son of Richmond and Bernice (Adams) Parshley.
He was a Navy veteran who served in WWII and worked for General Electric as a production manager for many years. He was a member of the First Congregational Church of Farmington, before moving to Rollinsford.
Pup is survived by: his wife Geraldine "Nan" (Beard) Parshley of Rollinsford; two daughters Karen Hernandez and her husband Daniel of Pahrump, Nev., and Lyn Phinney of Eliot, Maine; three grandchildren, Kimberly Lee and her husband Benjamin of San Diego, Calif., Kevin Phinney of Berwick, Maine, and Matthew Phinney of Hinckley, Ohio; one great-grandchild, Bennett Lee of San Diego, Calif.; two brothers, Richmond Jr. of Farmington, and Floyd of El Paso, Texas; and two sisters, Ardys Elliott of Farmington, and Lois Beaudoin of Rochester. He is also survived by many special nieces and nephews.
Pup was predeceased by his parents and his son-in-law Kenny Phinney.
Pup will be remembered for his unique sense of humor that always kept us smiling. Pup's priority was always his family. He was a great listener and was always there with advice for his daughters and grandchildren. He never missed a school or sporting event for his grandsons. One of his greatest joys was returning to Hawaii where he was stationed while in the Navy and visiting sites with his granddaughter.
A special thanks to Atlantic Home Life Senior Care and Dover Hospice for their kind and gentle care and assistance.
No flowers please. Pup would be pleased if you made a donation to the
