Louis Boino

of New Bedford, Massachusetts
Position: Crew
Age: 22

Louis Boino was the son of Joseph and Rose (Bento) Boino of 32 Clover Street. He had been employed as a welder in the General Electric plant in Pittsfield and at the Goodyear Rubber Company in New Bedford. He became interested in fishing through his brother Victor and was making only his second trip. Victor was also lost in this incident.

In addition to his parents, Mr. Boino was survived by two brothers: Joseph, a disabled war veteran living in New Bedford; and Francis, of Scranton, Pennsylvania. He also had three sisters--Dorothy, Mrs. Emily Pacheco, and Mrs. Adelaide Holstrom, all of New Bedford--and two nieces and a nephew.

The dragger Four Sisters was returning to New Bedford with a hold full of scallops when she was lost in a sudden storm on April 7 or 8 east of Nantucket. All ten men on board were lost, and an extensive Coast Guard search failed to find any trace of the ship or the crew. Twelve children were left fatherless.

The William Landry was lost in the same storm.
