Eddie Valentino was a father, a husband, a small business owner, and a community leader. He lit up every room he entered with his buoyant smile. Immensely photogenic, he was always ready to jump in front of the camera and capture moments with the people he loved. He loved working and lending a helping hand in the Springfield community. He loved sharing meals with and drinks with others in his spare time. He especially loved singing, with karaoke being his favorite pastime. He was the life of any party. His presence was loud and proud. He had a strong, loving, caring energy and infectious laugh.
Eddie was devoted to his family, naming his business, K&K Bookkeeping Services LLC (located in Springfield, MA), after his two daughters, Kiara and Krizia Valentino. A strong believer in the power of education, he played a huge role in helping his son, Eric Valentino, and daughters attend college and thereafter reducing their student loan burden. He was also essential in supporting his spouse, Mildred Figueroa-Valentino through job-loss and other hardships.
Eddie was a victim of COVID-19, woefully leaving his legacy behind on Wednesday, 11/18/2020, after a long 14-day battle.
