David F. Pelino M.D. Obituary
65, of New York died unexpectedly in Manhattan on July 20, 2018.
Born in Providence, RI, he was the son of the late Pasco and Angelina (Rossi) Pelino; husband of Sophia Y. Grineva-Pelino; nephew of Teresa Lepore of North Providence, Norma Pelosi of Massachusetts and the late Henry Rossi, Lydia Delmonaco and Arthur Rossi. Dr. Pelino is also survived by several cousins.
Dedicated to helping his patients, Dr. Pelino, was a psychiatrist in private practice in Manhattan and Westchester. He completed his psychiatry residency at NewYork - Presbyterian Hospital and was a graduate of the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research.
Witty and charming, he loved travel, art and literature. Proud of his grandparents' Italian heritage, Dr. Pelino spoke Italian and often traveled to Italy. He was an author himself writing three mystery novels under a pseudonym.
His death is a big loss for both family and friends. As the artist Renoir said "the pain eventually passes, but the beauty of the person remains."
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a memorial service on Saturday, August 11th at 11 a.m. in the Redwood Chapel of Swan Point Cemetery, 585 Blackstone Boulevard, Providence, RI. Inurnment will follow in the Cedar Columbarium.
