Joseph Tutino, Jr.


Joseph Tutino, Jr. of Warwick, NY passed away on January 6, 2021 at St. Anthony Hospital after a brief illness.  He was 70 years old.

Born in Valley Stream, NY, he was the son of Joseph and Mary (Petracca) Tutino and brother of Maria Tutino, all of whom predeceased him.

Joe was a car enthusiast who loved to work on hot rods and go for long drives with his friend Bill. He was past president of the Tri-County Car Club for a time, then decided to be called the “lone wolf” with no club affiliation.  He always enjoyed the camaraderie of the people he met and became friends  when attending the shows.  

Joe also enjoyed operating HAM radios and belonged to the Virginia Amateur Radio Club.  Early on he was also a photographer for the Journal Messenger where he took pictures at the Maryland football games. Joe put his heart and soul into whatever he enjoyed. He enjoyed boating with his cousins and being part of the family holidays and events.

The family will receive friends on Friday, January 15, 2021 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Lazear-Smith & Vander Plaat Memorial Home, 17 Oakland Avenue, Warwick, NY.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 16 at St. Stephen RC Church, 75 Sanfordville Road, Warwick, with burial following the mass in St. Stephen’s Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, Joe would have liked donations to go to Catholic Charities of NY Office of Development, 11th Floor, 1011 First Avenue, New York, NY 10022 or the American Heart Association, 300 5th Avenue, Suite 6, Waltham, MA 02451.

Joe was my first “real boyfriend.” That alone makes him memorable. I had not seen him, or Fred either for that matter, since Fred’s wedding, though we spoke a couple of times on the phone. His voice was still the same as I remembered from when we were 18. There is something about knowing that someone is still part of this world even if you never see them, and there is loss when they leave. Thank you Joe, for the memories, and my deepest sympathies to Joe’s family and dear friends.

Joe was a very special part of our family. When the doorbell rang with his own particular ring we would all enthusiastically call out, "Joey time!" This was a daily event growing up in Warwick. It's been a comfort to know he was still visiting with my brother from time to time, and he truly treated us as sisters. He will be missed so very much. My most heartfelt sympathy to his remaining family. May God and your memories give you comfort.

Joey was part of my life since I was about 3. Best friends with my brother, Fred, Joey was around a lot when I was a kid and he was like another brother to me and my sisters and our mother referred to him as her other son. A lot of my childhood memories include Joey, and I will always remember him fondly. We all loved him very much, and he is greatly missed. My deepest condolences to his family.

Good bye Joey. What a sad, sad sentence. One of the five girls growing up in the Raskopf family along with brother Fred, we were not just the best friend's little sisters. We were each and every one of us Joey's friends as well. And our Mom was his second Mom. I don't think I recall a Christmas Holiday without a visit from Joe. And that smile whether or not you earned it. I had a ride in that green hotrod. That beloved Hornet. And I was offered a second one. A day trip I never got the chance to collect on. What a devastating loss, not to have taken that final day with Joe. I had a chance to get to know Joe a little better when we were both Beamers. IBM didn't necessarily treat us both as well as we would have wished, but it did put me back in touch with Joe for a brief, much appreciated span of time. I will always remember, as a very little girl, watching Fred and Joey's band practicing in our basement. I was so excited and impressed to know a real live singer in a band. And I must confess to a little childhood crush. If my sister's are honest, I'd bet each would have the same to say. So again, good bye Joey. With the broken heart of that long ago little girl, I bid you fare well. Barbara Raskopf Shapiro

Joe was a member of our family as we grew in Warwick. He was our other brother and best of friends with our brother Fred. His passing leaves a hole in our family and our hearts. We will remember him always with love.
