Obituary of Cristino Pineiro
Cristino "Beebo" Piñeiro passed away the evening of Monday, February 21, 2022 at the Jefferson Washington Township Hospital at the age of 84. Though hospital restrictions presented a barrier to be by his side physically, the family was by his side in spirit.
Cristino was born on December 8, 1937 in Cayey, Puerto Rico. He met his lovely wife, Benita, at a party in Cayey and were married on June 21, 1962. They moved to the Bronx, New York and had three beautiful children, and then settled in Williamstown, New Jersey. Cristino worked for the United States Postal Service, commuting back and forth between New York and New Jersey, until he retired in 1992.
Cristino loved worshipping God, relaxing to instrumental music, working on electronics (fixing radios, televisions, and computers among others), playing games of all kinds, working in his vegetable and flower garden, and playing with his grandchildren. He really enjoyed playing domino's, baseball, and chess. He took pride in his appearance every day with his blue hoodie and dress pants. He had the sweetest sweet tooth known to man AZUCAR!!! (gotta love the Beebo mixes!). He always put on his best smile. He was a giving and kind heart, and he will be deeply missed.
He is survived by his wife Benita Piñeiro; his brothers: Virgilio Piñeiro, Nicholas Rodriguez, and Hector Piñeiro; daughters: Maritza Vega and Maria Priest; and son Hector Piñeiro. His pride and joy were his grandchildren Nathanael Vega, Patricia Bonnah, Jasmin Andujar, Jesmar Matos, Andrea Piñeiro, Jon Ruiz, Hector Piñeiro, Nelson Vega, Julio Piñeiro and Juliana Priest; and great-grandchildren Sabrina Andujar, Sebastien Andujar, Naomi Bonnah, and Noah Bonnah. He is preceded by his parents Tomas Piñeiro and Calixta Torres; and granddaughter Angelina Matos, baby angel Vega and baby angel Priest.
On Friday, February 25, 2022 the viewing will be held at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Church of Saint Michael 504 S. W. Avenue, Minotola, NJ 08341 at 10AM to 11:45AM, followed by a funeral liturgy at 12 noon. Cristino will be laid to rest at Our Lady of Victories Cemetery 201 E. Delaware Avenue, Landisville, NJ 08326.
