Born and raised in the Orsogna Region of Italy, he played professional soccer in Italy. He arrived in this country in 1955, continuing to play soccer with the former Boston Italia League until 1962. In later years, he also coached the game and refereed. Aldo was a custom tailor by profession and was a sought after designer for Brooks Brothers, College Town and several other “Garment Kings” at the time. In those days, manufacturing within the garment industry was most challenging. The working conditions in factories, were all but minimal, no heat in the winter and no air conditioning in the summer. And of course, there was always the race factor, that is, Aldo was an Italian immigrant, often overcoming prejudices and becoming excelled in his work. The work ethic of that era is almost non-existent. Aldo persevered and made a fine life for his wife, children and grandchildren.

He is the beloved husband of 53 years to Maria R. (DiMeo)Tenaglia. Devoted father of Anna M. Tenaglia and her husband Steven St. Arnault of Newbury, Robert Tenaglia and his wife Susan of Lynn and Lisa E. Polidoro and her husband Joseph A. Polidoro Jr. of Revere. Dear brother of Ada E. D’Angelo of Revere and her late husband Philip and Alceo Tenaglia and his wife Ines Penna of Everett. He is also lovingly survived by his cherished grandchildren; Isabella M. St. Arnault, Taylor J. Tenaglia, Joseph A. Polidoro, III , Gabriella M. Polidoro and many caring nieces and nephews. Aldo was a longtime active member of the Sons of Orsogna Lodge of Everett. He and his wife Maria spent many wonderful hours at the lodge with old friends and family. Interment will take place at Woodlawn Cemetery in Everett.
