George Parsells

George Albert Parsells, 63, of the Holiday City section of Berkeley Twp., died Sunday, August 2, 2009 at Community Medical Center in Toms River.

Born in Newark, Mr. Parsells was a pipe fitter for Local 9 Plumbers and Pipefitters at the Oyster Creek Nuclear Plant in Lacey Twp. George is a man who lived life totally, fully and uniquely. He loved to be around people. They loved him despite his unique political and social opinions. He especially liked spending time with his family. He took exceptional pride in Alex and Eric, the next Parsells generation.

Among George's circle of friends, Dr. Martha from high school provided him with support and advocacy throughout his life. George's presence will be missed, but his stories and escapades will be the source of many a good laugh when friends and family get together.

He is survived by his siblings, Patricia Parsells Dodd and spouse William of East Orange; a brother, Robert and spouse Shoshana Parsells of Princeton and Grace May Parsells of West Orange; a nephew, Alan and spouse Lori and their children Alex and Eric. A niece, Jane, predeceased him.
