Francis Anthony (Xavier) Caterino, born August 10th, 1957 to Angelo Caterino and Rose Donna Caterino, passed from this world to eternity on May 8th, 2023. Francis was born in Somerville, Massachusetts and moved to NYC to pursue his love and talent for art when he was 25 years old. Francis was tenderhearted, courageous, and generous. He approached life, learning, and his art with passion and depth.
Francis leaves behind his beloved daughter Francesca Lauren Caterino, her mother Kathleen Martin Caterino, his mother Rose Donna Caterino and his sisters, Marie A. Varrichione and Rachele R. McDonough and her husband Kenneth O. McDonough, nephew Angelo Thomas McDonough, niece Gabrielle Marie McDonough, loving aunts, uncles and cousins; and amazing friends who considered him a brother to them, and students that will never forget him.
From his birth to forever Francis is truly God's precious work of art (Ephesians 2:10).
