September 29, 1944 - May 19, 2016
Alfred M. Raffaele, Jr., son of the late Alfred and Anna Raffaele of Stamford, CT, passed away Thursday, May 19, 2016. He is survived by his three daughters, Christine R. Paoletta and her husband Sam, Alyssa M. Raffaele and Amy L. Raffaele, his sister Lorraine Derivan and her husband Michael, many nieces and nephews, his Uncle Mike and Aunt Pat Engenito, and his “Best Gumbas.” Al was born on September 29, 1944, in Stamford, CT, where he was a resident until he moved to Venice, FL in 2006. He attended the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA and graduated from Murray State University in Murray, KY, before enlisting in the National Guard. He enjoyed a long career guiding others as a Human Resources Executive at FAG Bearings Corporation, the former Norma Hoffman Bearings Corporation, which offered him the opportunity to travel the world. He served on the Board of Directors of the Stamford Red Cross. Following his career, Al used his passion for cooking and food to launch his own private chef business. He was happiest in the kitchen cooking meals for his family and preparing elaborate feasts, especially for his annual Golf Tournaments, and Christmas tree-trimming parties. He loved being surrounded by friends and family, telling stories about his life experiences, winning at Trivia Night and listening to music, especially Doo Wop. Al will be remembered as a loving and generous father, brother, uncle, cousin and friend and will be greatly missed. Family will receive relatives and friends on Tuesday, May 24th, from 4:30 to 6:30pm at Bosak Funeral Home, 453 Shippan Ave, in Stamford, with a tribute beginning at 5:30pm. Interment will be private.
