Noble Jeffrey (Jeff) Parsonage, 77 Jeff was a beloved son, husband, father, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, great uncle, cousin, friend and colleague. After battling and mending from an illness that brought him to the hospital in early December, contracted and sadly passed away from Covid related complications on January 11, 2021. He was surrounded by love and left us peacefully and with grace.
He is survived by his wife of 27 years Carol (Trigg); his children Steven and Laurie; sister Sharon (Bernhardt), Victoria (Dolan), brother Christopher and sister-in-law Carol (Wilken); brothers and sisters-in-law David and Laura Trigg, Bob and Jean (Trigg) Hoehn, Thomas and Mary Jeane Trigg, Dennis and Mary (Trigg) Hayes; loved nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, and generations of cousins.
He was welcomed by the open arms of his father Noble, mother Virginia, father/mother-in-law Daniel and Dolores Trigg, sister Judith, daughter Faith and niece Carolyn.
Jeff was a man of integrity, compassion, humor, gratitude, ingenuity, loyalty, growth and above all, love. His life’s journey was one of education, recognition, value, respect, inspiration and humility. He was a provider, problem solver and valued honesty above all else. He would be humbled to know the lives he touched, both within his family and community. He held the highest regard for honor and for those who sacrificed for our freedom.
Some things he loved: family, friends, work (until the day he passed at age 77), community, the farm in Waterloo, mechanics, numbers, marching bands & drum corps, history, ancestry, planes, ships, cars, motorcycles, technology, travel, road trips, carpentry, flying, his 1962 Chris Craft, football, a rare filet, his sweet furry babies…and any challenge he could “Macgyver”.
The family fully understands the times we are in and values everyone’s health and safety above all else, as would Jeff. There will be a visitation and a service for those who are symptom free and feel comfortable paying their respects in person. However, we fully appreciate and care for those who should not or cannot attend, our hearts are with you. Respects can be made here and welcome all messages and stories you may have of your memories with Jeff.
