Frank E. Rinaldi, 79, of Stamford, Connecticut, passed away peacefully at his home on January 16, 2022 surrounded by his loving and devoted family. Frank grew up in Stamford where he met the love of his life Patricia Cooper (Patty) who he married in 1963.
A lifelong Stamford resident, Frank established a very successful career as an independent plumbing contractor and took great pride in his work. As an exceptionally devoted husband, father and friend, what mattered most to Frank was the time he spent with those closest to him. Truly a selfless man who consistently put the needs of others above his own, he made sure to never burdened others with his own personal hardships and struggles especially over the last 10 years of his life.
Frank is survived by his loving wife Patty; his children Michael, Richard and Jennifer; grandchildren Leo, Maggie, Niko, and Jack; and his devoted sister Bette Ann D’agostino. He is predeceased by his mother Elizabeth Rinaldi and father Frank “Doc” Rinaldi also of Stamford.
An avid camper and hiker in his younger days, Frank loved the White Mountains of New Hampshire. As such, and in lieu of flowers, donations in Frank’s name may be made to the Appalachian Mountain Club via the link provided here: www.outdoors.org/donate/tribute-gifts/
