Richard Vito Liotino passed away early Sunday, morning January 22nd, 2023. He was a true gift to our hearts and lives. We shared so many memories growing up as a family. Our dear brother had just turned 55 on January 10th. What a blessing it was that we all were able to share this beautiful day with him. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his family just a short time afterwards.
Rick is survived by his sons, Joseph (Kayla) Liotino, and Anthony Liotino; grandchildren, Natalie and Emma Liotino; siblings, Christina (David) Ulrich, Laura Liotino, Maria (John) DeStephano, Lawrence (Michele) Liotino; nieces and nephews, Liza (Michael) Ritchie, Mary (Jonathan) Kuminski, Julia, Andrew, Matthew, and Callan Teta, Nicholas and Grace Liotino, Enzo, Angelo, and Rocco DeStephano.
Rick was a devoted father and grandfather “Papa Tino” and friend to all. He has now joined our loving parents, Vito and Sylvia Liotino, who provided a wonderful life of love, and gave us all our eternal faith in God. We will be reunited one day, and that is what gives us peace and comfort.
