John C. "JP" Parry, 65, husband of Rita Decker Parry of Wethersfield and Englewood, FL, passed away peacefully at home on June 2, 2020. He was born in Greenfield, MA, son of the late Ralph and Katherine (Smith) Parry. JP grew up ,Hatfield, MA, and graduated from Smith Academy in 1972 and UMass Amherst in 1976. Prior to his retirement JP spent a good part of his career at Veritas/Symantec where he rose from District Manager to Vice President of Global Accounts. Everyone who worked for and with him during that time considered him a mentor and a leader with a brilliant business mind and a willingness to help. He was generous with his time and talents, whether it be teaching someone how to rebuild a car, fix a house or discuss your next tech purchase. John loved the holidays, often hosting large gatherings at Thanksgiving and Christmas where he would show off his carving skills and go overboard with decorations.
Besides Rita, he will lovingly be remembered by his children, Chris Parry of Plymouth, MA, Steven Parry of Hartford, Elysia Neffinger of Kent and Michael Sisko of Wethersfield, his grandson Asher Neffinger as well as his sister, brothers, sister-In-laws, brother-in-laws and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a son, Thomas Decker Sisko.
A celebration of JP's life will be held at a later date. The Farley-Sullivan Funeral Home
has care of the arrangements. To extend condolences,

So nice to hear from you Jeff! Our Hatfield days are among the very best memories for our entire family. Just drove by your folks’ home on Gore Avenue this past week, just for old times’ sake. Thank you for reaching out, John will be tremendously missed.

I was shocked and saddened to see that John had passed away. My condolences to John's family and to all of the Parry's. My brother Mark and I were close friends with John and George growing up. We spent hour upon hour playing basketball, wiffle ball, swimming in the Parry's pool, playing with model race cars in their basement, and listening to the "Top 40" music countdown every week while doing homework (much to Charlotte's chagrin!). Unfortunately, we all grew up, moved on, and lost touch. Now I see that John lived just a stone's throw from me in Connecticut. He was a great guy and the kind of friend that helps make for a wonderful childhood. I hope that fond memories will help John's family and friends through this difficult time.

Thanks so much for these memories, it means so much to have him remembered in such a fun way. I remember all of the fun you guys had together in that “boy ‘hood” - no other girls around as I recall. Good news, I don’t have any memories of you guys being annoying :) John remained a kind, social, charismatic guy with a great sense of humor. He will be tremendously missed. The best to all of you Mullins boys!! - - Charlotte (Parry) Waynelovich

Our condolences to Rita and her family on this sad occasion. We enjoyed getting to know you both at Bocci. He was always upbeat and fun even when we knew he must have been in pain. He will be greatly missed. Nancy & Tim Malinguaggio

Rita and family,
JP was an amazing person. His impact on those that were fortunate enough to have him as a friend lives on within each of us. I feel blessed to have had him as my boss, mentor, and friend. We shared many good times, a few of which I've uploaded pictures of. Words do not express the sense of loss that we all feel from his passing, but I know that you take comfort in him being in a better place now, rejoined with Thomas and his mom. You have our heartfelt condolences, prayers and sympathies in your loss. We look forward to celebrating his life with you and friends whenever it is scheduled.

May he Rest in Enternal Peace, ---Janet and Mike O'Keefe
