Carl was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Carmelo and Barbara Parasiliti (nee’ Calta); paternal grandparents, Ignazio and Rosalia Parasiliti (nee’ Franchina); maternal grandparents, Johann and Wilhamina Calta (nee’ Pollock); and nephew, Christopher Dzubak.

  1. I knew Carl as a good friend, especially during my late teens and early twenties. He had a great sense of humor and we laughed a lot. I appreciate having known him and wish his family well I’m dealing with his loss. He will be missed greatly.

  2. So sorry for your loss,Joann and family. I just found out Carl had passed. My prayers are with ya’ll.🙏

  3. The Parasiliti family were our back door neighbors in the Forest Hills subdivision. My brothers and I went to Bradshaw High School with Carl and Brian. I remember Carl as happy-go-lucky and very friendly. Condolences to the family

  4. Brian so sorry about Carl. I just read about him in the paper. May God’s grace be with you and your family.
