Joseph Parisher Obituary

Joseph Haywood Parisher, 82, passed away on Wednesday, March 8, 2023.

He is preceded in death by his brothers Willie and Karl Parisher

Joe was survived by his wife, Phyllis Rountree Parisher; sisters, Myrtle Ruffin, Sandra Ray (Thomas), and Sherry Jackson (Will); sons, Tony Parisher and wife Dana, Keith Parisher and wife Deborah, Tracy Parisher and wife Sue, Brian Parisher and wife Davona; grandchildren, Tabatha Burns (Anthony), Haley Lewis (Tyler), Megan Harrell (Brandon), Jeremy Parisher (Amanda), Brooks Parisher (Molly), Michael Parisher (Alex), David Parisher, CJ Donaldson, Jimmy Donaldson, Anna Donaldson, Jacob Parisher (Breanna), and Zachary Parisher; and great grandchildren, Lylah, Kinley, Raelyn, Ryan, Wilder, Libby, Charlotte, Rhett, and Ruby.

Joe’s four sons Memories, Joe was rich in the love that surrounded him as a husband, dad, grandad, and great grandad. Known as Papa to his grandkids and great grandkids, Joe loved doing things with them and always made them feel special. He loved fishing, hunting, and golf. He had an incredible faith that you could see in his actions with everyone that he came into contact with. Joe and Phyllis had an amazing life together of 65 years full of love, much laughter, and a bond that made the hard times easier. He was bigger than life to those that loved him and will be greatly missed. Joe helped raise 4 boys that always saw him as their hero. He taught them how to love, how to work, how to be kind and honest young men. The best lesson he taught us was love of family, caring for, and looking after each other was very important to him. His love of fishing and hunting was something he so enjoyed.  He loved his children and grandchildren more than life itself.  He loved to joke and pick on people.  If he didn’t pick on you then you could rest assured that he didn’t much like you.  He was a true soul that loved with his entire heart.  He will be missed by many and never forgotten.
