Joseph Warino Obituary

Canfield – Joseph A. Warino, 96, of Canfield, passed away peacefully Thursday afternoon, February 8, 2024, after a brief illness with his loving family by his side. 

Joe will always be remembered for his outgoing personality, sense of humor, quick wit, and smile.  

He was born February 7, 1928, in Youngstown, the son of James and Philomena “Fannie” (Green) Warino and was a lifelong area resident.

Joe was proud of his Italian heritage and growing up on the Eastside where he graduated from East High School as a “Golden Bear”. He then proudly served our country in the United States Army during World War II earning the rank of Tech 5. Joe was stationed both stateside and overseas in Japan for several months and while there, he met a beautiful young army woman named Doris D. Copp, who was also stationed overseas. Joe was awarded the World War II Victory Medal, the Good Conduct Medal, and the Army of Occupation Medal Japan for his service. Upon receiving an Honorable Discharge on November 2, 1947, Joe returned home and was reunited with Doris, who became the love of his life. They were married on August 12, 1950, and spent over 58 wonderful years together until her passing on September 24, 2008.    

Joe attended Youngstown College before having a lengthy career as an insurance agent and retiring from the Prudential Insurance Company.    

He was a member of St. Charles Borromeo Church and the VFW Post 8841.  

Joe enjoyed socializing daily at the Southern Park Mall with all his friends who called him “Handsome Joe” and was an avid golfer.
