Dr. Franklin "Frank" M. Parisi

September 24, 1933 ~ January 8, 2022 (age 88)


Franklin M Parisi passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Saturday, January 8th. He was 88 years old.

Frank was the loving father of Jason Parisi, Christina Parisi and Lisa (Ephriam) Parisi-Hill and grandfather of Gibson Hallisey. Brother of Jerry (Barbara) Parisi, Millie (late Tom) Morris, late Mary (Nick) Mazzie, late Clara (Carl) Tuskan, late Edith (Lou) Botti, late Dominic (surviving Clara) Parisi, late Joseph (Joy) Parisi, and late Rosie (Jim) Ruffo, and Uncle and friend of many.

Born in Wilmerding, Pennsylvania, he graduated from Westinghouse Memorial H.S. in 1952. He later graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1962. 

Frank was a Doctor of Chiropractic for 60 years, owning his own thriving practice. He was open and serving his community until the very end of his life. If you were ever in his office you knew how happy he was to be there. His happiness came from serving and helping others heal.

Frank was very proud of his heritage. He was a first-generation Italian-American whose first language was Italian. Nothing was more important to him than family and the traditions his mother passed down to him. Those traditions were honored up to his last Christmas, and will be continued.

Frank was an avid gardener and his zucchini flowers will be missed by anyone lucky enough to eat them.

He was a life-long active member of Concept Therapy and has many friends from C.T.

Above all else Frank was a beloved father and grandfather to 3 children, who always thought and still think he is their hero.
