Alfred was born in Solvay, NY on February 1st, 1932 and spent all of his childhood in Solvay, moving to Fairmount, Camillus, Mt. Holly, NJ, back to Solvay, and finally Huntsville, Alabama to be near his son. After a four year stint in the U.S Navy, serving aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Coral Sea with his brother during the Korean Conflict, he returned to Solvay where he graduated from Le Moyne College in 1960 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Pure Sciences. Soon after, he met the love of his life, Concetta A. DiDominico, and they started a family. Al worked as a U.S Government Civil Servant with the U.S. Air Force for 34 years, first at Hancock Air Force Base, Syracuse, NY, and retiring in 1992 as the Budget Chief for all of McGuire Air Force Base, NJ. Not being one to ideally sit around, he continued working part time in the men’s department at Lord & Taylor’s Department store at Destiny Mall, Syracuse, where he was beloved by the staff. Al was predeceased by his parents, his wife, Concetta, and his beloved daughters, Ann Marie Bick (Stonecypher) and Kathleen Emmi-Brown. Al enjoyed reading Louis L’Amour westerns, listening to big bands and swing, gardening, and baking holiday cookies for family and friends. He is survived by his son, Al Jr. and his wife Ana Maria Clare-Emmi, his loving brother, Joe Emmi and his wife Carole, several grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, nephews, and nieces.
