John W. Folino Jr. died peacefully on June 27 with his wife and daughter by his side.

Hailing from Watertown and Buzzards Bay, John was known for his wry sense of humor, his kindness and his generosity. A student of Tufts University and an engineer by trade, he was the founder of Cape Building Systems, Inc. and CBS Doors, and his passion for problem solving complemented his boundless curiosity for life. He owned a home in Oak Bluffs and spent time on the Vineyard working on construction projects on the Island.

He was an avid sailor and Scrabble player, and to all who knew him he was a bright, thoughtful man who was always happy to lend a hand.

He is survived by his wife, Christine (Whalen) Ketchel; his daughter, Lauren; and Chris’s three children: his stepson Nate Ketchel, his wife, Colleen, and daughter Maera; his stepdaughter Morgan Twomey, her husband Shawn, and two sons Michael and Noah; and his stepdaughter Sarah. John’s brother Greg, sister in law Anne, and nieces and nephews, Anne-Marie Iandoli, and Karyn, Michael and Paul John Folino also survive him.

He was the son of the late Mathilde and John W. Folino, Sr. In addition to his relatives, coworkers and clients, who were all like family to John, he touched the lives of many friends who are also mourning his loss.

His family will be receiving visitors in honor of John’s life on Thursday, July 6 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Road, Route 6 in Mattapoisett.
