American Veteran 04


Fred Giacinto

1926 - 2021



          Alfred Joseph Giacinto born February 5, 1926, of Roosevelt New York passed away on June 10, 2021, in Cobleskill, NY.  The son of Dominic Giacinto and Laura Pomaro-Giacinto, Fred lived a fulfilling, vibrant 95 years.

            He proudly served in the United States Navy during WWII and married the beautiful Anne Depinto in 1955. Together they raised three sons:  Tony Giacinto of SC, Fred Giacinto Jr. of Middleburgh, NY and Rick Giacinto of Long Island, NY.

             He is predeceased by his siblings: Frank Giacinto, Sal Giacinto, John Giacinto, Josephine Lewonka and Martha Woods.           

            Freddy “The Rock” patrolled the streets for 20 years as a Police Officer for The Hempstead Police Department.

           He was an advocate for exercising regularly - walking a mile a day, working with weights and such. He always said; “if you stop moving, you stop living.”  Refinishing antique furniture was a big part of his past time. 

            He was an important figure in his community, admired and respected by many.  He will be greatly missed.

            A memorial service will be held in the near future and will be announced closer to that date. Memorial contributions may be made to MEVAC, PO Box 817, Middleburgh, NY 12122.    

            We Love You.  REST IN PEACE.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mereness-Putnam Funeral Home, 171 Elm St., Cobleskill, NY.
