Condolences to the Facin Family

Joseph Dominic Facin, passed peacefully in his home on May 1, 2019 with his loving family at his side. Joe was born on May 20, 1930 in Woodbridge, Connecticut.  He served in The Korean War.  Joe met Eleanor (Gabriel) after the war and they were married in 1956.  He went on to serve 20 years as a police officer for the Woodbridge Police Force.  He retired in 1976 and he and Ellie took a journey back to nature, moving from Connecticut to Greenwich, NY, to live on an organic farm. He was the leader of the Knights of Columbus order in Greenwich for many years.  Joseph volunteered at the bingo hall for over 30 years raising funds for those in need and was a member of the Middle Falls Fire Department, Greenwich VFW, and American Legion Post 515.  He truly loved the Greenwich Community as exhibited through his volunteering and service.

He turned his focus and passion into horse racing.  He and his son, Joseph Jr. and his grand-daughter Amanda created Facin Stables and just this past year their trotter Ulster was named trotter of the year at Saratoga Harness.  This made him incredibly proud.

Survivors include his sons, Joseph Jr. (Carole), Thomas (Carol), Dino (Brenda), Kenneth (Kathleen), Ron (Barb); grandchildren, Amanda, Melissa, Jordan, Kresney, Gabe (Chelsi), Andrew, Leah and Elisabeth; great grandchildren, Carmia, Cameron, Casey, Wyatt, Jayden and Rowyn. He is also survived by his beloved younger brother Dominic.
