Austintown, OH - Charles “Chucky” Richard Parisi Jr., 29, passed suddenly Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017. Chucky was born Feb. 3, 1988, in Warren, a son to Charles Richard Parisi Sr. of Niles and Jodi Ann Carr Sforza of Berne, Ind.
Chucky went to Niles McKinley High School and was an exceptional youth football player with the Red Dragons. He was self employed, doing construction and carpentry with various businesses. He could fix anything. Chucky loved riding his motorcycle and ATV, being outdoors, doing extreme sports and camping, body building and giving advice to others about fitness. He loved big trucks and foreign cars, skateboarding as a kid and teen, dinner, shopping, traveling and bonfires at home followed by a movie. He was intelligent, an artist and a writer, loved music and had excellent chess-playing skills. He will be remembered for standing in a New York City line for the perfect sneakers; he loved his shoes and the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had a heart of gold, forgiving others’ faults, was a mentor to others and had a great sense of humor. He was the protector of family and friends, a “Papa Bear,” willing to do anything to help anyone he loved, even complete strangers. In addition to a wonderful life filled with such great memories they cannot all be listed, his loved ones are grateful that his struggles are over and he is finally at peace.
