Obituary for Marion F. Bisesi

Marion F. Bisesi, 98, passed away on Jan. 20, 2018. He was the best dad and grandpa anyone could ask for, and was totally devoted to his loving wife of 58 years, Marie. He was the proud son of immigrant parents who came to America from Sicily, and who built the successful A. Bisesi & Sons Produce business, where he worked for over 30 years. Marion was born in Akron, Ohio, to the late Anthony and Mary (Lanzarotta) Bisesi. He lived in the Akron and Cuyahoga Falls areas all his life. Marion served in the US Army during World War II. He was a faithful member of St. Vincent de Paul Parish and the St. Vincent Rosary and Holy Name Societies. He received his education at St. Vincent Grade School and St. Vincent High School. After the passing of his father and brothers, he sold the family business and worked for the US Postal service for over 15 years. After his retirement from the post office, he volunteered at St. Vincent’s Cemetery, and helped each of his children with yard work and babysitting. Everyone who passed his house always admired the meticulous way he cared for his lawn.
Marion worked hard, but always found time for his family. He often participated in neighborhood pickup games of basketball, football and softball with his children and their friends, then taking them for ice cream afterwards. He was the dad that every neighborhood kid wanted. He also loved animals, and would always carry a bag of treats for the dogs he would meet along his mail route.
In addition to his parents, Marion is preceded in death by his wife, Marie; daughter, Mary; brothers, John, Joseph, Andrew, and Sam; sisters, Lena Khoury and Josephine Beyer. He is survived by children, Sam (Marci), Peggi, and Tony (Terri); grandchildren, Jeff, Gina, Becky, Joe, Lisa, Kevin, Brian, and Amy; great-grandchildren, Ben, Josh, Brad, Danny, Sophie, Cece, Sammy, Annie, Owen, Emma and Wally; brother, Tony Bisesi; and many loving nieces and nephews.
Mass of Christian Burial will be Friday, 10:00 am at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 164 West Market Street, Akron, Ohio 44303 with Father Norman Douglas, Celebrant. Visitation will be Thursday, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm at H B Moore Funeral Home (corner of N. Main St. and Mildred Ave.). Marion's final resting place will be Holy Cross Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church.
