Salvatore J. “Sully” Tinio, 72, of Mendon, formerly of Hopedale, passed away on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at his home. 

 

Born in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, he was the son of the late Salvatore P. and Nancy (Mencarelli) Tinio. 

 

Although he did not have the benefit of a formal education, Sully was the owner of numerous successful businesses over the years, including Tinio’s Liquor and the famous Fiftys Lounge, in Bellingham.  Most recently his business interests focused on the construction and transportation fields. 

 

His greatest achievement, however, was his relationship with his beloved family.  He was involved with both of his sons in various business enterprisesHe shared his love of auto racing with his sons and grandchildren, competing on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, recording numerous victories, including three straight at the prestigious New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  He traveled frequently to Florida to spend time with his sisters.  He recently realized his “bucket list” dream of building a family compound in Mendon where he enjoyed time with his family and many friends. 

 

He was the father of Damon S. Tinio and his girlfriend Tina, and Lawney M. Tinio and his girlfriend Kelly, all of Mendon. He is survived by his sisters, Connie Tinio of Vero Beach, Florida and Nancy Tinio Borton and her husband Stuart of Malabar, Florida. He is also survived by his grandchildren Dezerae, Madison, Michael, and Lucy Tinio, his former wife Shirley Knox and her husband John, and his only niece, Lisa May and her boyfriend Al.

It's not often that a man comes along and loves his family and extended family with such devotion. He was a rare breed born to be just as he was and fufilled his life long legacy few men ever will do. He put his family first and foremost to the very end. I was also lucky to have a Dad like that. You were very blessed. He will always be with you .in your hearts and memories. Love to the family and all his dear friends feeling his loss.

Words cannot express how saddened I am. Sully will always be remembered for the generous and thoughtful man he was. A friend throughout the years with so many memories that will live in my heart forever. Damon and Lawney you were lucky to call him dad. He loved you so and was so proud of the men you became. Rest In Peace dear sweet Sully🙏
Janet Lizotte


Although I never met Sully, Tina spoke of him every time we were in touch. He was a patriarch of a large loving family. At dinner time everyone would gather and share a meal and conversations about the day and other interesting topics. She spoke of him in such a loving and honorable way. She obviously thought the world of him. He was such an intricate part of the family. I know he will be greatly missed. I only wish wehad had the chance to meet him and spend some time talk with him. I have no words to say except, please remember, all of you were left behind, that he died knowing how loved he was. And that was the greatest gift you could’ve given him. All our love to each of you. And a big hug across the miles.
Lisa and Jeff Earle
