Putting People First
John Valentine, a mechanic from Naples, Italy, settled in Stamford, CT in 1910. John had 5 children, including Joseph, a carpenter who worked tirelessly to support his wife Grace and their two sons, Joey and Bobby.
From homes on Melrose Place and Stillwater Road, the Valentines and their large extended family shared the promise of a better life through determination and sacrifice.
As an active student in Stamford's public school system from K-12, Bobby learned to put community first. He's never stopped.
