Finno, James S.   3 comments below

Lifelong Greenport resident James S. Finno died Nov. 6 at his home, 364 days after being diagnosed with cancer. He was 57.

He was born at Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport on Feb. 3, 1951, to Patrick and Helen (Krukowski) Finno. He grew up in Greenport, graduated from Greenport High School and had worked as a heavy equipment operator for Southold Town since 1983. He and his wife, Donna, were married July 1, 1995, on the bluff over the Sound at 67 Steps in Greenport.

A parishioner of St. Agnes R.C. Church in Greenport, Mr. Finno "helped people out all over the place" according to family members. He enjoyed playing golf, fishing and his annual trip to Dover, Del., to watch a NASCAR race with his friends, they said.

Predeceased by his father in 1999 and his brother, Bruce, in 1970, Mr. Finno is survived by his wife; his mother; his children Amy, of Greenport, and Joshua, of East Marion; his sister, Karen Alfero of Greenport; his stepchildren Christina Murray of West Babylon and Michael Vicino of Lindenhurst; and five grandchildren.

Family received visitors Nov. 9 at Horton-Mathie Funeral Home in Greenport. Funeral services were conducted Nov. 10 at St. Agnes by Father Thomas Murray. Burial was private.

Memorial donations may be sent to East End Hospice, P.O. Box 1048, Westhampton Beach, NY 11978.
