Jairo L. Patino, 59, of Johnston, passed away on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at The Miriam Hospital, Providence. Born in Medellin, Colombia, he was a son of the late Juan De Dios Patino and Alicia Barrientos.
He had a passion for classic cars. He enjoyed his career as an automobile mechanic. He was a hard worker and enjoyed tackling life’s challenges. He lived for his family and loved them dearly. His heart of gold left a mark in the hearts of those that knew him. We will remember him as a generous, loving man that always put his family first. He lived by the motive “no mountain too big or too tall to conquer.” He was a devote husband, a loving and dedicated father & loved being a grandfather. He did an excellent job proudly wearing all these hats and will be terribly missed.
