Joel William Parsons, 63, of Colpitts Settlement, passed away at The Moncton Hospital on Monday, January 4, 2021. Born in Sackville, he was the son of the late Edmond and Stella (Stright) Parsons.
Joel was a lifelong dedicated employee of Modern Enterprises and retired due to his illness after 44 years. A true outdoorsman he enjoyed snowmobiling, hunting, his annual fishing trips and working around his home. For many years he drove his stockcar locally and was an avid NASCAR fan.
Survived and sadly missed by his beloved wife, Charlotte (Piercy-Waddell); his daughter, Jennifer Parsons (Travis); step-children, Zachary (Stephanie) Waddell, Jessica Mollins (Colin); cherished grandchildren, Levi, Calvin, Grayson, Paisley, Gavin; brothers, Garry (Linda), Myles (Sharon), Blaine (Anne); mother of his daughter, Valerie Rossiter; many nieces and nephews, and canine companions, Maggie and Molly.
In light of recent COVID-19 restrictions, public visitation at the Salisbury Funeral Home (372-4800) has unfortunately been cancelled. There will be a Celebration of Joel’s Life on his birthday in July.
In memory of Joel, the family would appreciate a random act of kindness to anyone in need.
