Carmine Napolitano, 79, of Baytown, was surrounded by his family when he peacefully passed away Thursday, November 17, 2022, in Houston.
Carmine was born August 23, 1943 in Jersey City, New Jersey, to parents; Nicholas and Anna DeLorenzo Napolitano, a former resident of New Jersey, and has resided in Baytown for the past 15 years. He was a retired mason and of the catholic faith. Carmine was fiercely protective of his family; he was a hard worker and made friends with everybody. He also enjoyed fishing, crabbing, westerns and spending time with family and friends. Carmine will be remembered for his big heart, sense of humor and will be missed by all.
His favorite quote was “ tomorrow is another day, the sun will come out and life will go on”
