Obituary for Paul F. Pellino

Paul F. Pellino, age 83, of Yonkers, NY, died on Thursday October 12, 2023. Paul was born May 10, 1940, in the Bronx to Vincenzo "Jimmy" and Rosa Pellino. He was the first of six children. He attended PS 41, PS 113, and Evander H.S. in the Bronx. He later on attended SUNY New Paltz College where he received a BS in Sociology. He retired in 2016 from Bronx Lebanon Hospital after 22 years working in supply distribution.

He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Aileen (McBrearty), his four children, Vincent (Gaia), Carole (Neil) Regan, Rosa (John) Flanagan, Maria (Matt Zingaro). Grandchildren: Jessica, Vince, Meghan (Frank), Allison, Kevin, John. Nephews: Rick (Eileen), Kieran, Rowan, Derek, James (predeceased by Brandon). Nieces: Kristina, Marie, Amanda (Max), Emelyn (Roman), Gabriella, Allegra, Waverly, Danae, Luna
Siblings: Theresa Spadavecchia (predeceased by brother in law Richard), Mary Pellino, predeceased by Anita (Bill) Papa, predeceased by Joseph (Camille), Rita Pellino (predeceased by brother in law Robert Konaz). And many more cousins and relatives both here and in Italy.

Paul was an avid softball player who played up until the age of 55. He loved the game so much that he continued with the sport in coaching both of his younger daughters in softball. Throughout his youngest daughter's, Maria, high school and college sports career, he never missed a game. The New York Yankees were his favorite team (after the new York Giants relocated) and he never missed a game on the TV or radio. Paul was loyal to a fault, if he stuck up for you he had your back and would protect you like the best friend that he was. He always spoke his mind and told you the truth, even when you didn't want to hear it. He loved his family first and foremost and would do anything for them.
Paul loved vinyl records and has been collecting them since he was a teenager. His knowledge of the labels and songs always amazed us. A song would be playing on the radio and he would be able to tell you the label, when it was recorded, and what was on the B side. Sometimes he would sit in the basement and play his records and sound like a radio DJ just having fun.

Paul was a one of a kind guy who was smart, funny, kind, and will be missed by everyone!!!!
