Joe Parra Cause of Death
“With great sadness I’m reporting that we’ve just heard about the passing of long time LSFer and movie aficionado “Uncle” Joe Parra”, Rob Gates announced.
“Joe was a professional stage actor, and knew virtually everything about films, good and bad and very bad…new and old and very old. We, once upon a time, would take group road trips out to Winchester VA to see him perform at the Theater there. He moved to Florida some time back to care for his ailing parents so has not been around LSF for years, but he was a big part of our history.
“Above and beyond all else, Uncle Joe was a wonderful person, full of joy, and fiercely protective of his friends. I’ll never forget him pulling me aside when I first met him after I’d been dating Peter long distance for a couple months. He grilled and intimidated/threatened me to make sure my intentions were good and that I’d never hurt Peter. Once he was sure of me though, he pulled me into his circle of protection and caring.
“We’ll miss you Uncle Joe….may your resting place be filled with nightly shows on stage, old 50s schlock films, and endless opportunities for you to tell stories over a meal. Or, I hope you rise from the grave as a hungry zombie or vampire and terrorize a small town, I think you’d enjoy that.
