Frank J. Valdinoto

Frank J. Valdinoto, 95, of Brooklyn, NY, passed away on Wednesday, February 21, 2024. Beloved husband of the lateAntoinette (nee Prince). Loving father of Angela Caserta and her husband Gregg and Frank Jr. and his wife Marissa. Proud grandfather of Gregg and wife Erin, Chris, Francis and Noelle. Dear cousin of Frank Valdinoto.

A pharmacist in Brooklyn for thirty five years, Frank was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. He loved his work and taking care of the people in his community. A proud Sicilian-American in a neighborhood with many Sicilian immigrants, he was a doctor, adviser, and friend, able to communicate eloquently in the local dialect. For a family member or friend who needed sage advice or a comforting word, the “Professor”was always available. He gave of himself willingly and happily. Time spent with family and friends, sharing a meal, a glass of wine, laughter gave him great joy. A problem solver by nature, he was always up for a good crossword or Sudoku puzzle. A card sharp, few could beat him in a game of gin rummy or pinochle. To those who were fortunate enough to know him, he will be truly missed and always remembered. The Valdinoto family would like to thank the Arbor Terrace staff for providing Frank with excellent care.

A graveside service will be held on Friday, February 23, 2024 at 12:30 PM at St. John’s Cemetery, Middle Village, NY.

In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make a donation in Frank’s memory to The National Italian American Foundation.
