ALFRED, age 86, of Cinnaminson, New Jersey passed away suddenly at home Monday, May 6, 2013.
Loving husband of the late Anna (nee Nicolardi) and proud father of Rick and his wife Linda and the late Alfred (Barbara); grandfather of Gina and her husband Maurice Christino, Erica, and Alicia; great grandfather of Maurizio and Valentina Christino. Survived by many dedicated nieces, nephews, and close friends.
Alfred honorably served his country as a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army during WWII. He was also a charter member of the Philadelphia chapter of the Sons of Italy.
