Ralph Ronald "Ronnie" Parizek, a lifelong resident of Willington, CT, entered peacefully into eternal life on Sunday, December 8, 2013, surrounded by his family. Ronnie, 80, was the loving husband of Carol (Couchevitz) Parizek. Born on April 5, 1933 in Stafford Springs, CT, Ronnie was the son of Ralph and Amelia (Hipsky) Parizek. He was the beloved father of two, grandfather of three, and uncle, friend, and inspiration to many. Ronnie served in the United States Air Force during the Korean Conflict with 28 combat missions in the 307th Bomb Group/Wing, 371st Squadron as a CFC (Central Fire Control) airman in the B-29 aircraft stationed at the Kadena Airforce Base in Okinawa, Japan, working to preserve America's freedoms.

He married the love of his life, Carol, on June 13, 1964, and they were fortunate enough to have been together for almost fifty years. They later welcomed two sons, Donald and Jody, into their family. His sons meant the world to him and he was very proud of them. Ronnie was an avid outdoorsman and loved to spend time hunting and fishing on his property in Willington with family and friends. He was the loving "Papa" to his three cherished grandchildren, Skyley Rose, Chase Alexander, and Mitchell Adam. He loved spending time with them and watching them swim in the pond at his house. He always knew how to make them laugh. Ronnie is survived by his beloved wife, Carol; two sons, Donald Parizek and his wife Maureen, and Jody Parizek, all of Willington, CT. He is also survived by his three grandchildren, Skyley, Chase, and Mitchell Parizek, of Willington, CT.
