Mr. Joseph P. Parise, Jr., age 83, husband of Evelyn Neri Parise of Hamden, passed away on October 1, 2017 after a brief illness. Mr. Parise was born in New Haven, Connecticut on July 15, 1934, the son of the late Fillippa Anna Porrello and Joseph Paul Parise. He grew up on William Street with many of his family nearby. He attended St. Boniface Elementary School and was a graduate of St. Mary's Academy. He then attended the Stone School of Business. Joseph began his career with the National Biscuit Company, and then spent 33 years with Carnrick Laboratories, where he was the Regional Director for the Northeast Region. Since retiring he enjoyed his gardens and golf, and watching his grandchildren grow up. He never missed an opportunity to attend a sporting or musical event, enjoying each and every accomplishment of his beloved grandchildren. His granddaughter Ashley said upon his passing that 'he was the greatest grandfather, he loved us so much and showed us that love every day.' His greatest passion, however, was that which he shared with his wife of 63 years Evelyn.

Suan of Baltimore, MD, and a son, David Paul Parise and Karin Klarades Marinaro of East Haven, CT, three grandchildren, Preston Suan, Ashley Suan, and Savannah Parise.

  1. Joe was one of my biggest supporters when my own son Joe passed away. He always called, checking on me, making me laugh, because he said he loved me. Even when when I needed a shoulder to cry on, he was never too busy. We were fierce enemies on FB regarding FB , but each argument always ended in an I love you. I loved him dearly and Joe will always be in my heart. My sincere sympathy and love go out to his family.


  3. My condolences to the family. Joe was a great guy and I always loved his stories of the east coast lifestyle. What a fun guy!
