Vail Daily obituary: Joseph Porino, 1927-2016

My sweet husband passed away Monday here in Vail and now is at peace. He was a soul who always brought warmth and light to a room. He made the days brighter.

Pino was passionate about skiing from age 6 when his father first took him to the mountains of Switzerland and Italy. He never stopped.

He infused his four children, Marieadine, Sandra, Nicole and Stephen, with the same fervor for skiing. He light up the lives of Paul and Steven. And his nine grandchildren will always have him as their example, as the man with the funny hats and wonderful humor.

We celebrate his life. Many love him — here, in Europe and in Mexico where he spent much time in the later years of his life.

We will always remember him with much love.
