Alfred J. Mavilia, of Hingham, formerly of Weymouth and Braintree, died Aug. 24, 2013. Alfred was a WWII Veteran of the United States Navy. After the war he joined A&P Supermarkets where he spent his career, retiring in 2000 as Store Manager. Since he worked six days a week, Alfred had a special love of Sundays. It usually started out early either fishing with his father-in-law or tending to his yard, cigar in hand and always ended with the family enjoying his famous BBQ dinners. His family also enjoyed summers in Hull at their beach house. His wife Grace Anne suffered from difficult health at an early age and Alfred was always there for her. His care and devotion to his wife will never be forgotten. He will be remembered as a gentleman by all those who had the privilege of knowing him.
