Mr. Francis W. 'Frankie' Carino, of Newton, died Tuesday, February 12, 2019 in Newton-Wellesley Hospital. He was 68.

Born on July 27, 1950 in East Boston he was a son of the late Biagio and Dorothy (Boyer) Carino. Raised in Revere he graduated from Revere High School. He had a lifelong love and friendship with Virginia A. Papa and on May 10, 2003 they married in Boston. A longtime Winthrop resident he moved to Newton in 1996.

Frankie worked in construction, primarily as a truck driver both independently as well as for other construction companies throughout greater Boston. He was able to easily describe the many developments and building projects that he was a part of in and around Boston.

Frankie loved life and the people in it. With his outgoing personality and contagious sense of humor he will be remembered as the constant jokester with his wonderful ability to make others laugh. Often dubbed 'The Mayor' he was a familiar and much loved face wherever he traveled. It took him little time for acquaintances to become friends. But at the end of the day all that mattered to Frankie was his family…most special his three princesses, Ginny, Ava and Lily…and his much loved dog named 'Princess'.

In addition to his wife, Ginny he leaves his twin daughters, Ava R. and Lily R. Carino all of Newton; his siblings, William 'Skipper' Carino of Walpole and Christine DeMarco (Bobby) of Clayton, North Carolina; his sister-in-law Jeanne Papa of Lexington and brother-in-law, William Papa (Dorothy) of Salem; also survived by nieces & nephews.

Family and friends will honor and remember Frankie's life by gathering for calling hours in The Joyce Funeral Home, 245 Main Street (Rte. 20), Waltham on Monday, February 18th from 3 to 7 p.m. and again on Tuesday when his funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Burial will follow in Newton Cemetery, Newton.

Memorials in his name to the Ava & Lily Carino Education Fund, made payable to Virginia Papa, in c/o Bank of America, 1 Chestnut Street, Newton, MA 02465.
