Obituary

Paul Joseph Compagnino passed Saturday, August 29, 2020 in Bridgewater, NJ at the age of 88. Paul was born in Manhattan, New York on October 8, 1931, son of the late Rosaria (DiMaggio) and Giuseppe Compagnino, living in Manhattan, Brooklyn, NY, Old Tappan, Gillette, and Basking Ridge, NJ.

He received a Bachelor's Degree in Pharmacy from St. John's University in Queens, NY.
Paul served in both the United States Marine Corp and the United States Army as a medic, being honorably discharged in 1961. Paul worked as a proud pharmacist for the entirety of his life.

He was a member of St. Vincent de Paul RC Church Stirling, NJ and a devout catholic. He was predeceased by his wife of 40 years, Adeline (Raniolo) Compagnino. Paul is survived by three daughters, Paula Arbadji-her husband Joseph, JanineThormann-her husband David, Valerie Ford- her husband Jon, and son Joseph Compagnino- wife Sharon. He is also survived by 7 grandchildren: Justin, Jonathan, Nina, Nicole, Paul, Jack and Zakary. He held many roles throughout his life: husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather and friend.

Paul was an honest, humble, compassionate and loving man who was adored by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Paul loved baseball, specifically the Yankees, was an avid golfer, lover of pasta and Italian food. He compiled recipes to create "The Compagnino Family Cook Books" that were proudly dispersed among family and loved ones. Most importantly, he thought of life as a simple equation. Family + Food + Togetherness = Love.

He was my father's very best friend from childhood into adulthood.
My father, Joe Criscione, was my Uncle Paul's Best Man and Uncle Paul was his.
Their friendship lasted the test of time and distance and the two could not have been closer.
I was my Uncle Paul's and Aunt Addie's "Michael" and I couldn't have been more tickled with my nickname.
I have cooked several dishes from Aunt Addie's cookbook and when it was time for my children to prepare a dish for their Italian class where do you think they went? Right to Aunt Addies cookbook - because if it was in there it was authentic Italian.
I remember walking in to the smell of delicious food each and every time we arrived for a visit.
The kitchen was always warm and bustling with activity.
Each time I use my electric knife I think of my Uncle Paul. He was at my house in NJ and I was carving up some meat and he warned my dad to be careful "because I was pretty good with that thing".
While all of us have not kept in touch over the years I considered Paula, Janine, Valerie and Joseph my cousins while I was growing up.
Thank you Uncle Paul and Aunt Addie for great some great memories, great meals and wonderful times.
You will both be forever cherished in my heart.
To his children (my cousins), their spouses and children ...
It will be the little things that you remember... the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that will push away the pain, and bring the smiles back again. xoxo
With Deepest Sympathy and Love,
Marianne Criscione Patterson
