Obituary of Alberto Picone

Alberto Picone "Al the Barber", age 85, of Stratford, beloved husband for 48 years of Michelina Rinoceronte Picone, was risen into Christ surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, March 26, 2005 in Bridgeport Hospital. Born in Bridgeport on March 28, 1919, he was a son of the late Michael and Alessandra Pisacrete Picone and was the youngest of seven children. Alberto lived in Stratford over 30 years, and worked as a barber for nearly 70 years. He loved his profession and the people that were valued customers and friends. He was affectionately known as Al the Barber, and it was his wish to continue to work until the very end and with God's blessing he worked until the day he was hospitalized. Al the Barber loved to play cards and you could always find him ready to play a game of gin or share his gift of conversation. He will be sadly missed by his family who loved him dearly and they will carry his memory in their hearts forever.

In addition to his wife, survivors include his devoted children, Michael Picone and his wife Laura of Shelton, Lucie Picone Gribok and her husband John of Shelton and Anna Maria Picone Gardecki and her husband Paul of Derby.
