Giuseppe was born February 24, 1940 to Stefano and Domenica (Scarpitti) Parisi in Carovilli, Italy. He came to North America in 1965 and reconnected with the love of his life, Elena (Helen) Carano whom he married in 1967 in Akron.

He was a 50 year member of the Laborers Union Local 894 and a member of Carovillese Lodge and Club. He was a member of Queen of Heaven Catholic Church.
Giuseppe’s passions were his family and his home. He adored his wife of 54 years Elena; children Stephen Parisi, Diana Schultz and Donna Deagan and especially enjoyed being Nonno to Lee, Joseph, Isabella and Gabriella. He prided himself on taking exceptional care of his home, lawn and garden.
He is also survived by his sister Maria Ricci and was preceded in death by his parents and siblings Antonio and Silverio Parisi and Angelina Sacco.
