April 13, 1933- September 3, 2022
It is with deep sadness and profound loss that the surviving family announces the passing of Francisco
Coto at the age of 89.
Born to native Puerto Rican parents, he relocated to New York in his early teens. Francisco diligently
built a life for himself as an astute and successful businessman with no traditional education; then, he
grew his family. Francisco was a man of many talents and incredible ingenuity. He worked to provide for
this family until he became ill and retired. While retired, he enjoyed a simple, relaxed life in the family
He is succeeded by his partner of 57 years, Olga Pineiro, his daughter, Frances Coto, and his
granddaughter, Caitlin James. He is also survived by 2 sons, 4 grandkids, and 3 great grandkids. His
presence is greatly missed, but his memory and spirit will live on. Services were held privately by the
family, and he is laid to rest beside his son, Manuel Coto.
