SALEM - Alfred R. Carnevale, age 90, of Salem, died Saturday, April 28, 2012, at the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers, with his family by his side. He was the devoted husband of the late Rose A. (Rainville) Carnevale, with whom he had shared 62 years of marriage.
Born and raised in Pittsfield, son of the late Anthony Carnevale and Providenza Coppolino, he first worked for General Electric plastic division until he joined the Navy in 1942. He served aboard the USS Marblehead on Atlantic coastal duty both in North and South America.
Following his tour of duty he returned to Pittsfield and shortly after moved to Salem following his marriage to Rose in 1946. He continued his education and graduated from Bentley College in 1949. Al worked in the accounting department for Bomac/Varian of Beverly and later for General Electric in the same capacity. He retired from G.E. in 1984 following 19 years with the company.
Al was extremely devoted to his wife and family. Sunday dinners at Papa's, where he won countless games of cribbage, were always filled with lots of laughter and especially love and he soaked up every moment with those closest to him.
