A. Joseph Faro Obituary

FARO, A. Joseph, Age 92, of Boston, MA peacefully passed away on March 1, 2024. 

He was born in Winthrop, MA on May 26, 1931. He was the son of the late Concetta

(Friscia) Faro and the late Joseph J. Faro, and was the beloved brother of the late Winnie

Buonaiuto.  Mr. Faro is survived by his nieces and nephews, Patricia, Michael, Paul,

and JoAnn Buonaiuto, and Linda Flanagan, and many grand and great nieces and

nephews, and by his longtime companion Maryann Aakjar. He received a BA degree

from Bentley College in 1952.  He served in the US Army from 1952-54, stationed in

Greenland.  Mr. Faro founded Yankee Lobster Company, a wholesale shellfish company

in 1954, which he operated for over fifty years.  “Yankee Joe” supplied live shellfish to

local restaurants, and in the 1960’s experimented with cold packing and air shipping of

live lobsters, which allowed him to ship “Flying Yankee Lobsters” to restaurants

throughout the world. In retirement, he enjoyed spending the winter months in Puerto

Rico.  Mr. Faro was a proud member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company

where he held the rank of Major.  His funeral will be private, with interment at Saint

Joseph Cemetery in West Greenwich, RI.  In lieu of flowers, a donation in his memory

may be made to Care Dimensions, 75 Sylvan Street, Suite B-102, Danvers, MA 01923.
