Joe Pasinato
updated: Mar 26, 2014, 8:38 AM

Over the course of three decades, visitors to Los Padres National Forest were often greeted by Joe Pasinato. In many respects he was the face of the U.S. Forest Service. He knew the Forest like the back of his hand, and offered advice on camping and hiking spots that enriched many visitors' experiences. During fire emergencies, Joe answered calls at the Forest's information center and worked with television, radio, and print reporters to keep the public apprised of the firefight. Following a 28-year career, Joe retired March 31, 2012.

The Forest was devastated by the recent news of Joe's death Feb. 16 in Santa Barbara. He was 63. Joseph Francis Pasinato, Jr., was born and raised on Santa Barbara's eastside, the only child of Joseph and Beatrice Pasinato. Joe attended Santa Barbara Junior and Senior High Schools, and went on to study computer programming at Santa Barbara City College.
