He made life-long friends and loving memories with his family throughout the years.

The family moved to Florida in 2005, where Joe truly began to find himself.

He had developed a great passion for Japan, especially anime.

Joe had aspirations to become a writer.

He wrote several fictional short stories and also poetry.

Joseph was an exceptionally unique soul. He believed in the good of people overall regardless if they fall at times. He loved unconditionally. He was a beautiful combination of childlike impishness and the wisest of old souls. Joe left a lasting impression in all those who met him.

He will be truly missed!

~~MESSAGES FOR JOSEPH CATINO~~

A beautiful spirit made the transition early morning, February 27, 2014, as a soft rain fell ever Orlando. Joe Catino, son of my friend Rose, both of them two of the sweetest, strongest and brightest souls I know, brother to Gina, beloved uncle to Leilani and to the little nephew who will never see him on this side of the Veil, but will hear earfuls of Uncle Jojo stories as he grows up, and beloved of Kawon, another beautiful and pure soul, lost his brief but ferocious battle with cancer early today. To his very last conscious moment, he kept his sense of humor and playfulness, and reflected back on those around him the deep love that surrounded him.

Go in Beauty, Joe, just as you walked in it throughout your life.

Your smile is in my heart.
You have taught me about courage.
Your Smile teaches me about strength
And about hope.

A young warrior faced a battle bigger than life itself. He used all the “weapons” he had at hand. All possibilities were considered, all opportunities explored, all avenues where taken. In the end the battle was bigger than his heart.
Joe’s earthly form is no longer with us. However, his heart, his memory, his spirit will always be imprinted on the hearts and minds of those that he “touched” …. knowingly and unknowingly.

His light isn’t extinguished. He will be forever within reach.
Heaven has a new angel … .and his name is Joseph Anthony Catino …

Forever Joe!!!
