He studied at Seton Hall University before serving as a decorated seaman and ensign in the U.S. Merchant Marine during World War II. He saw duty in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans, as well as the Mediterranean Sea and the Suez Canal. After the war, Carmel enrolled at Fordham University, graduating in 1951 with a bachelor’s degree in history. He was an editorial assistant at Newsweek magazine, city editor of the Paterson Eagle newspaper and news editor of the Beverage Retailer Weekly in Manhattan before becoming a staff writer at the public relations agency Carl Byoir and Associates, and an account supervisor at Grey Public Relations.

From 1980 to 1990, he was vice president of Banfi Vintners of Old Brookville, N.Y. and chief executive officer of Vinum Communications in Manhattan. He was also publicity director of Jumby Bay Island, a Banfi resort property in Antigua. Carmel was a volunteer publicist for Assumption College for Sisters in Mendham, and wrote for the The Beacon, the newspaper of the Paterson Diocese. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the St. Patrick Guard of Honor. He also participated in the movement to canonize Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. In addition, he was a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, the U.S. Merchant Marine Veterans of World War II, the Irish American Cultural Institute, the New York Press Club and Fordham University’s Golden Rams. He was a communicant of St. Cassian R.C. Church, Upper Montclair, and a former communicant of St. Thomas More R.C. Church, Convent Station.

  1. Lisa Burke says:

    I just read the news of Carmel Tintle’s death. He lived such a distinguished and selfless life so he is certainly already enjoying the eternal rewards of his life well lived in service. Yet his passing is a great loss to ACS. ACS owes Carmel a debt of gratitude that can never be fully repaid: Without him ACS’ public face would not be where it is today if it were not for the steps Carmel took so carefully to further knowledge and awareness of ACS. May God grant him eternal rest and may perpetual light shine upon him.
