THOMAS J. “JUNIOR” PARISEAU
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Thomas J. “Junior” Pariseau, 55, who on Saturday, May 20, 2023 joined his son Tommy, mother Mary and his other loving family members that have gone before him.
Born in Cohoes, New York, he is the son of Thomas L. and the late Mary E. Picard Pariseau and was a graduate of Hoosic Valley High School in Schaghticoke and had been previously been educated at Shenendehowa High School in Clifton Park.
Junior owned and operated Line to Line Pavement Marking based in Schaghticoke. His expertise and dedication in his line of work brought him throughout the Capitol District and surrounding areas. He always worked hard so that he could provide for his family and to be able to spoil them and himself at times with some of the simple and finer things in life. Tom was dedicated and loved working with his father at Mystic Farms in all capacities whether it was planting, filling flats, pulling orders, deliveries or whatever the task may have been, he was up to it. He learned his work ethic, being a hard worker and hustle from his Dad.
Junior was a unique man with a heart of gold and quite the mischievous sense of humor. He was well known to splurge for and on desserts regardless of how much food was being served at that particular meal. He was an avid basketball lover. Whether it was going to sports card shows in person or on-line, he loved buying, trading and collecting basketball cards as well as watching hoops on television, especially NBA games. He also loved reading, fishing and vacationing, spending time with his family and most of all his dogs; in particular his special girl Bella as well as Bentley and Brody as well as his cats Elsa and Ana. Junior was proud to have very recently become a member of the Schaghticoke Volunteer Fire Co. as he looked forward to volunteer and give back to the community.
In addition to his father Thomas (Christine) Pariseau, he is the beloved husband of Erica L. Carrozza Pariseau, devoted father of Taylor (Doug) Weinheimer, Stephen Adams, Scott Pariseau and the late Justin Thomas “Tommy” Pariseau, loving brother of Yvonne (Michael) Casale, grandfather of Sophia, Ellie, Lukas, Scarlett and Justin Thomas, dear son-in-law of Rita and Ken Boyce, brother-in-law of Jeffrey (Jen) Carrozza, Jeremy (Becky) Carrozza and Danielle (Jim) Durkin, also survived by several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
