JOSEPH C. CINQUINO ~ Batavia
Beloved husband, father and grandfather, died peacefully Thursday evening October 26, 2017 at Highland Hospital with his family at his side. He was born March 11, 1927 in Batavia, NY to the late Michael and Elsie (Moretto) Cinquino, also preceded in death by his beloved wife, Frances (Schumacher) Cinquino in 2009; siblings, Louis Cinquino, Mary Joy, Betty Burke, Netta Razzano and In-laws, Marie Racine, Barbara Strollo, Leo & Bill Schumacher and Jewel Kipfer.
Mr. Cinquino was an Army Air Corp Veteran of WWII, longtime member of Resurrection Parish (St. Joseph's), worked for many years at Sylvania and finally at the Eastman Kodak, Co. before retirement. He was an avid reader and took in so much knowledge that it was said, "He knew the most things, about the most things." Joe enjoyed making homemade wine and his children claim his long life is due in part to his annual garden, where he started his famous pepper plants from the previous year's seeds, which were heirloom seeds from his late father, tended to them until just perfect to pick, roasted them, and added them to his homemade bread for his daily "Roasted Red Pepper" sandwich.
Surviving are his loving children, Aileen Cinquino of Buffalo, Mary Margaret (Jeffrey) Radka of Brockport, Joanne (Jim) Mattiucci of Webster, Michele (Dan) Cheeseman of Webster and Michael (Renee) Cinquino of Conesus; siblings, Louise Misiti of Medina, Nicki (Dan) Lista of PA, John (Annette) Cinquino of Buffalo; 9 grandchildren, Janelle (Sean) Baker, Leslie Radka, Andrew & Michael Mattiucci, Elyse Cinquino, Owen & Aidan Cheeseman, Anna & Joseph Cinquino; 3 great-grandchildren, sisters-in-law, Rita Cinquino of LeRoy, Pat (Bill) Wunder of Canada and brother-in-law, Charles Razzano of PA along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
