Ermanno A. “Al” Belgiorno

Family & friends are invited to attend visiting hours on Monday, January 23rd from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107), REVERE for Ermanno A. “Al” Belgiorno, who passed in the presence of his God and his ever faithful family, on Thursday evening, January 19th, at his Revere residence. His funeral will be conducted from the funeral home on Tuesday, January 24th at 10:30 a.m., followed by a funeral mass in the Immaculate Conception Church (Corner of Beach St. & Winthrop Ave.), REVERE at 11:30 a.m., followed by interment in Holy Cross Cemetery, Malden.

Born on January 3, 1915, of humble Italian immigrant parents, Pasquale & Concetta (Madonti) Belgiorno, at their East Boston (Saratoga St.) residence, he would live in East Boston until moving to Revere in March of 1954. An alumnus of East Boston High School, Class of 1933, he would begin a career as a salesman & representative for Gerber Foods Foundation. He would give 33 wonderful & exciting years to the organization, always maintaining that now forgotten work ethic, so vital to the “Greatest Generation”. When “Al” reached 100 yrs. (Jan.3, 2015), Gerber Foundation, awarded him their “Oldest Living Gerber Ambassador” award. Retirement in March of 1977, only served as a brief vacation from the work force & earned him time to think of what he really wanted to do with the rest of his life. Certainly, complete & utter relaxation and leisure, was not one of his options. With the absolute & complete support of his best friend & partner, his faithful & patient wife of 74 years, Marguerite (Ricciardelli); they began a career in the study of, sale of, and acquisition of, antiques. They would become the friendly older couple on the “Flea Market Circuit”, lasting about fifteen years until 1990. Their personalities drew many, and their success would be most fulfilling for the couple. They did this until the problems of age & unsteady health would make it more sensible to “start smelling the roses”. Although no schedule was necessary, a schedule was indeed followed & implemented; A.M. shopping at Market Basket, walks on Revere Beach Blvd., late breakfast or early luncheon at McDonalds at Northgate Plaza in Revere and of course a stop weekly at Luberto’s Bakery of Revere. So regimented and anticipated at McDonald’s, that the owner, Elaine, & her outstanding staff, catered to Al’s favorite items. And so endearing, this senior couple became a part of the McDonald’s family. On January 20th, 2015, McDonald’s presented & hosted a 100th birthday party for over 70 people (Al & Margie’s McDonald’s family). Of course, Al had observed a family party given to him by their children at the Continental Restaurant of Saugus on his exact 100th, (Jan. 3rd, 2015). That affair was presented with the very best of fine food, fine wine and “fabulous” music. Certificates of recognition and award were presented to Al from the Mass. State Senate, the City of Revere, the Boston School Committee, & of course, The White House.

Besides his beloved wife of 74 years, Marguerite (Ricciardelli) Belgiorno, he leaves three outstanding children, Paula M. DeSimone & her husband Christopher of Pepperell, Ma., Stephen P. Belgiorno & his wife Taryn of Danvers & Denise C. Belgiorno & her fiancee Zino Amato of Revere. He is the cherished grandfather to Pamela C. Jeffre & her husband Daniel of Clearwater, Fla., David M. DeSimone & his wife  Tierney Bianconi of Somerville, Diana M. Belgiorno of Danvers & Leanne R. Belgiorno of Manhattan, NY. He is also lovingly survived by his two great-grandsons, Elias C. & Isaac D. Jeffre of Clearwater, Fla., many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces & grand-nephews & a large assembly of extended family & friends. He was the dear brother of the late Louis S. Belgiorno & Emily C. Chase.
