    I used to surf with Chris in the 60s and 70s. He was a close friend. We had a lot of fun crusiing up and down the jersey shore looking for waves and girls. A great guy. He will be missed.

    Chris was a great guy and my sisters and I have many fond memories our cousins' Chris and Betsy visits to Haverstraw and ours to Margate when we were growing up. It was always special to see them. A very sad loss for our family.

    Michael and Gail Sendrick would like to offer our condolences to your family. I'm Chris s cousin from Penna. When I moved here I had the opportunity to meet Chris at the body shop of Atlantic City Police Department. We had nice conversations during work. Regret not staying in touch with him or Paul. Always had a smile when you greeted him. May he RIP. Too young, too soon. 🙏🙏

We Offer the Book of Memories™

Parsels Funeral Home offers what we consider to be the finest example of online memorials, the Book of Memories™. Created by an award-winning team of web developers and designers while being led by a funeral professional with over 25 years of experience, this online memorial is intended to provide your family with a permanent place to pay tribute to your loved one.

Far more than a traditional obituary—which is usually published only once and has no interactivity at all—the Book of Memories™ Memorial Website is a fully interactive archive of treasured photographs and stories remembered from their time spent with friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.

You’ll be able to invite others to visit the online memorial, where they can upload images, share stories, write heart-felt messages of condolence, send a floral tribute to the funeral, or make a charitable donation in memory of your loved one. And the built-in social media integration means they can then “spread the word” about their addition to your loved one’s Book of Memories™ using Facebook and Twitter.

We offer the families we serve a Book of Memories™ memorial website with the intention that it gives you a measure of solace and comfort during the coming months. To arrange for a Book of Memories® memorial website for your loved one, contact us today.
