Patrick Parsells

Loved the outdoors

Patrick Parsells, 68, of Hudson, lost his courageous battle with ALS April 26, 2014, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born May 11, 1945, in Boston.

Mr. Parsells loved the outdoors, whether it was to hike, fish, golf or sit with his friends. He was a devoted loving husband to Marcia for 46 years. He loved spending time with his four grandsons. He was preceded in death by his father LeRoy Parsells and sister Gail Mostert.

He is survived by his mother Stacy Parsells of Daytona Beach, Fla.; wife Marcia (nee Farkas); daughters, Christin (Ben) Walton of Key Largo, Fla. and Holly (Justin) Kapela of Hudson; grandchildren, Benton and Nathan Walton, Aidan and Brogen Kapela; and brother LeRoy Parsells.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions in Mr. Parsells's name to ALS Association Northern Ohio Chapter, 6155 Rockside Road #403, Independence, OH 44131.

Mass of Christian Burial will be May 2 at 11 a.m. at St. Mary Catholic Church, 340 N. Main St., Hudson. Burial at St. Mary Cemetery. Attendees are invited to join the family after the services at the lower hall of the church for a luncheon.
