Throughout Al's life, he was an active parishioner of St. Theresa's Church. He was a devout catholic and taught CCD there for many years. Al was a proud graduate of Dartmouth College and a brother of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. He was able to give back to his alma mater later in life by volunteering to interview prospective Dartmouth students. He was fluent in Italian and enjoyed his time studying abroad in Italy. Al also loved spending time exercising and keeping fit.
Alfred is the loving father of Francesca Marie Patetta, and the dear brother of Melissa Patetta. He is also cherished by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and fraternity brothers. He was predeceased by his faithful dogs, Kirby and Rex.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the National MS Society, which Al supported through walks, fundraisers and awareness for many years along with his team, Al's Argonauts.
