Joseph Frisino III Obituary

Joseph F. "Joe" Frisino, III, age 70, of Falmouth, formerly of Holyoke, passed away on Thursday, January 25, 2024 in West Springfield after a short illness. He was born and educated in Holyoke, a son of Elizabeth (Bowler) Frisino and the late Joseph F. Frisino, II.  Joe proudly served in the United States Coast Guard from 1976 to 1983 and then went to work for the Steamship Authority in Woods Hole as a Purser, where he worked his entire life. Besides his mother, Joe is survived by a brother, Daniel Frisino and three sisters: Kathleen Wenning, Joan C. Petta and Cynthia Knightly.

Joe will be missed by his family and friends. His doors were always open and he left his light on for everyone.

He truly enjoyed the trips his family would take to the Cape to visit him. Always having plenty adventures for the family to do, such as taking all to the go carts, miniature golf, bowling, as well as going to the beaches with his nieces and nephews. He and his mother also enjoyed fishing when she visited the Cape to see him.

Joe truly was the best brother anyone could ask for. He was available to help anyone who needed it. He had a heart of gold and was an extraordinarily giving person.

His mother was well taken care of by Joseph. He would travel home on his days off from the Steamship Authority to be with her and take her for the little adventures she loved so much. Joe would take her to get coffee and play the lottery. Then they would ride through the neighborhoods where she lived and grew up.

Joe would also take her to the cemeteries where her beloved husband, Joseph, her son, Francis, and both the Frisino and Bowler grandparents lay to rest. He always made sure the gravesites were well taken care of and decorated with flowers.

Joe loved food, visiting his favorite restaurants on the Cape, shopping, and spending time with family, including his co-workers at the Steamship Authority who he also saw as family. He always knew what stores had the best deals and were sure to share them with those he loved.

Joe’s kindness, welcomeness, and joy will live on forever through the memories of his loved ones. His valiant fight against cancer will not be forgotten. His family will always smile and laugh at the little sayings he often said, reiterating and remembering them in his honor.
