No one can ever replace you, dear Albert! 🙂 And I will always have fond memories of the night, many, many years ago, when Gordon wanted his traditional after dinner Galliano , and there was none left at the bar. You sent ?someone? out to a nearby bar to fulfill Gordon’s request. I hope you two have met up ‘up there’ and are enjoying a laugh and a drink together. xo

The funeral service at Holy Cross was beautiful. My deepest sympathy to you Irma, Beth, and Michael. He loved all of you so much and you made his life so special. He will be missed.

  33. My condolences for your loss-I am sad to hear of Albert’s passing. I hadn’t seen him in quite a while but he is part of my fondest memories from back in the 70’s. Some of us guys had a nickname for him back then because of some of his Viet Nam stories-‘Monsoon’…I can’t tell you how many times he made me laugh so hard with his little quips & remarks-Albert was the life of the party & when I think back on my times hanging out at Cinelli’s which became Mr.Dominic’s he is part of those great memories. Rest in Peace Monsoon-Until we meet again.

  34. My deepest condolences to Alberts family and friends. Not being from the U.S. I saw when going to Mr. Dominic’s just how loved Albert was. He was the best waiter ever and made us laugh all the time.
    You will be missed and never forgotten. Rest in Peace Albert.

  36. My sincere condolences to Beth and the entended Marciano family. My thoughts and my prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. May you find comfort and friendship to sustain you in the days ahead.

  37. My sincere condolences to the Marciano family. I played hockey with Albert in our early years of life. We were young kids, I would say age 11-17. We traveled to cities like Clinton, Tonawanda,NY and even in Canada. What a great teammate and even back then he had a terriffic personality. We also played in the adult hockey leagues as we got older. He was a very skillful player but his huge heart and again wonderful personality always made him stand out among all the people I have met in my life.
    So rest in peace my friend and may the Good Lord always watch over you.
