I just heard the sad news about Carmen's passing out here in Las Vegas, NV. My younger brother Rich (Mahwah,NJ) and I grew up on Cedar Avenue just up the street from Carmen and his family. My Dad often hung outside with his Dad and other neighborhood dads.

I will always remember hearing Carmen practicing his drums in the basement when I would walk by his house to Fairlawn Park to play basketball or meet with friends. I guess he was playing with "South Michigan Avenue" while my wife Debbie (Albini Rinaldi) Ruffino was lead singer in the 70's with "7 Grand" before marrying me and moving to Las Vegas in 1978.

In my college years I would always say hi to Carmen while he working at Clydel in Shipping when I used to deliver for Danco Industrial Supplies.

The Farino family on Cedar Avenue were always great neighbors! I remember on Halloween they would go all out for us kids! My sincerest condolences to Gina and all their family and friends!

To the Farino family:
Sorry to hear of Carmen's passing.
He was one of our best fans at the
soccer games, always cheering on
the side lines with a big grin and a
hearty laugh. He was a joy to be
around. Many good memories and
laughs, we had a lot of fun.

Carmen’s influence in my life began when I was a 13 year old babysitting for an infant Pamela Jeanne. I spent much of the next 15 or so years with my ‘second family’ as I babysat countless hours and attended various family events and activities. He was always willing to chat with any of the neighborhood kids and was the consummate entertainer. Carmen’s (always clean) sense of humor was unrivaled and he never failed to greet me with something other than my actual name! As a young adult, I appreciated his wisdom and encouragement. He was a confidant to so many.

I remember seeing him at the car wash one day, shortly after he married Debbie. Oh how happy he was as he shared the news with me! Shortly after, I would see him regularly when we were attending the same church. Talking about Pam, Jay and Matt was always a given, as he loved his kids to the moon and back.

I believe the last time I bumped into him was a day I thought my world was falling apart. He quietly listened and let me cry and I was feeling better as we hugged goodbye and I thanked him. Little did I know that day more than five years ago that I would never be blessed to run into him again. Carmen, you were a bright light in this world and your love for God and others will leave a lasting impression on so, so many, including me. I will forever miss you and have so much love for you.

I grew up two doors up the street from Carmen and his family. As a young teenage boy, he was a great guy to hang around with. He had a passion for life, had a wonderful sense of humor with a perfectly timed sarcastic wit to go with it and he adored his kids. He referred to me as the “tall drink of water”. I remember it clearly as I walked or ran by his house. Carmen, you were a blessing and a joy to be around.

So very sad to hear the passing of Carmen Farino. I knew him since 3rd grade. He was like a brother to me. We spent many good times together hanging our Chase School. We had the best relationship for years. We grew up with each of his children being born. He spent many days at my house with me and my 2 sisters. So many good memories that I will cherish the rest of my life. May you rest in peace Carmen................... Love you
