Alfred was born August 9, 1951 at Kings Hospital Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York. He graduated from Queen of All Saints Elementary School, Brooklyn, New York. Al graduated Dumont High School, Dumont, New Jersey in 1969. Al also attended New York University and worked in the telecommunications industry for 27 years. Al worked in the Amalgamated Printers' Union Local #1, New York City. He also worked as a cab driver in New York City and belonged to the Teamsters Union of warehousemen in New Jersey. Al also graduated the Computer Processing Institute, Paramus, New Jersey in 1980. Al worked for Merill Lynch Pierce Fenner and Smith in NYC from 1980 to 1985. Al also worked for Capital Cities ABC in Hackensack, New Jersey. Al worked for FEMA from 2009 to 2010 with the DEC cadre (Disaster Emergency Communication) Region VIII, in Denver, Colorado. Al also returned to FEMA in 2017 as a COML (Communications Unit Leader) until 2021, when he retired due to his illness.
Al worked for Lockheed Martin as defense department contractor Level III Field Engineer for 7 years into his 60's. Al worked for Lockheed on the PTDS program (Persistent Threat Detection System). During Al's deployment to Afghanistan he worked in Bagram Air Field, Jalalabad, Asadabad, Shindand, and Kandahar. The work was as a non-combatant using high-definition cameras mounted on a tethered blimp (aerostat), for aerial surveillance protecting United States Military troops and ISAF allies on patrol from enemy harm such as IED placements and ground attacks from enemy groups such as taliban and Iranian terrorists.
Al also worked on the southern Texas border in Rio Grande Valley doing aerial surveillance for Lockheed Martin and working shoulder-to-shoulder with Customs Border Patrol. Al did his deployment for 1.5 years from 2015 to 2016.
Al was an optimistic man all his life. He loved joking and laughing with his friends, lovers, and family. Al's wishes were to return to Italy someday to enjoy his Italian heritage and explore the country he loved. Al was a devout catholic and received all the sacraments and now the final one.
