Mr. Joseph A. Farinella
February 15, 1935 - December 05, 2006
Born February 15, 1935 in Chicago, IL, Mr. Farinella was raised in the Taylor St. neighborhood and attended St. Patrick’s School. As a young boy, he began part-time employment at a nearby commercial printing company, H.R. Arris & Company, Inc. Due to his strong work ethic and self-discipline, he eventually became the owner. While continuing to do sales, marketing, and most administrative duties, he was joined in the business by his children later in his life. As a successful business man, he was able to retire at the age of 50. Joe treated everyone he met with equal kindness and respect, from his employees to vendors to people he met on the street. His love for his family was his greatest attribute, and his generosity had no limits.
