Albert B. Faloretti
Albert Biaggio Faloretti, 96, passed away peacefully on October 25, 2019, surrounded by his cherished family. Born in Springfield in 1923, he was the son of the late Felix & Florence (DeMaria) Faloretti, and a graduate of Springfield Technical High School. In 1941 he elected to serve his country as a Staff Sergeant in the 835th Bombardment Squadron of the US Army Air Forces during WWII and was honorably discharged in 1945. Al worked for 40 years for Springfield’s Department of Public Buildings where he was a foreman, retiring in the early 1980s. He was a lifetime communicant of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, a member of Springfield Elks Lodge #61, and a member of Forest Park VFW. His greatest joys came from spending time with his precious family, being out on the links and watching his true loves the NY Yankees & Giants!
Al will be dearly missed by his four children; Rosanne (Ralph) Stirlacci of Springfield, John Faloretti of Springfield, Joseph (Mary) Faloretti of Winchester, NH & Albert (Donna) Faloretti of Enfield. He was a loving grandfather to Tina Faloretti, Allison Nitch, Jessica & Briana Faloretti, John & Michael Stirlacci, Christopher Faloretti & Jennifer Brodie. He was a proud great-grandfather to 9 & great-great grandfather to 3. Sadly, he was predeceased by his wife Niccolena Lattell, sisters Florence Cressotti& Rose Asselin, his beloved nephew Ralph Fiore, and beloved nieces Nancy Hartman & Joanne Israel.
