James J "Chico" Parisi, Sr. 78 of Turner, passed away on Monday, November 19, 2018. Jim was born in Rumford on May 6, 1940, the son of Antonio and Sarafina (Sciaraffa) Parisi from Italy. He was raised and educated in Rumford. He was a US Navy veteran. He married Phyllis (Boulanger) on January 14, 1961 and together they raised their three children in Rumford. He was a Town of Rumford Firefighter for 25 yrs. and retired to take care of his wife during her long illness. They bought their dream home on Canton Lake and together enjoyed fixing it up, having many gatherings and making new friends. Jim would say, "who loves you baby" to his grandchildren. He enjoyed taking family and friends on boat rides, swimming at the lake, having cookouts on that great porch overlooking the lake and celebrating their milestone wedding anniversaries. His face would light up when Phyllis was enjoying herself and they were forgetting about their worries. His inner light went dim when Phyllis passed in December 2011.
