Carmelo S. “Carl” Marino, 1943 - 2021

Carl was president of S.G. Marino Crane, a business run with his brothers and family members started by his parents Sebastian (Mike) and Rose Marino in 1952. Carl treated his team as family and together they grew the business to one of the largest in the world. Carl’s will to live made it possible to see the many lives he has touched and influenced. Legend, icon, charismatic mentor, great friend and brother are a few words to describe him. In business Carl had the admiration, respect and was considered the “pinnacle of his peers”.

For 12 years, Carl was a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association, during which time he received numerous pro-rodeo championships culminating his career in the top 25 in the calf roping division.

He is survived by his wife Stacy; daughter Darcy Marino of Arroyo Hondo, NM; sons - Brian C. Marino; Jon and Jaye Irwin of Middletown, CT; Brothers - Michael Marino of Middletown, CT; Lawrence (Jane) Marino of Portland, CT; Theodore Marino of Middletown, CT; (6) granddaughters, (6) great-granddaughters and (1) great-grandson; Nieces and nephews.

Those wishing to honor Carl’s life, the family asks that you pay it forward for those that are less fortunate than ourselves.
