Giusto A. “Gus” Aloisi

Family & friends are invited to attend Visiting Hours on Saturday, August 14th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Vertuccio and Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107) REVERE for Giusto A. “Gus” Aloisi, who died on Friday, August 6th at the Blaire House in Tewksbury following a brief illness. Gus celebrated his 98th birthday on July 12th. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated in St. Anthony of Padua Church, 250 Revere St., REVERE at 12:00 p.m., immediately followed by interment in Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett.

Gus was born in Malden but was raised in Boston’s North End. He attended Boston schools and was a student in Boston English High School when he was drafted to enter the U.S. Army during the second World War. Gus served his country with pride & honor, serving in the 361st Infantry Regiment 91st Division as a Rifleman. During his time overseas, he was decorated with the Good Conduct Medal, Victory Medal, European African Middle Eastern Theater Campaign Ribbon, American Theater Campaign Ribbon & Bronze Star. Gus was very proud of serving his country. When he returned home from his service, he immediately completed his GED, as education was very important to him. The next order of business for Gus was that he married the one & only love of his life, Domenica C. “Maggie” (Ferraro) in October of 1946, a marriage that was filled with love, kindness & cherished memories that spanned 69 years. Gus & his wife settled in Revere in 1946, and together it was there they made their home & raised their 3 sons. Gus worked at the Boston Naval Shipyard for 27 years as a supervisor, until they closed. He then went on to work in maintenance at Charles River Park in Cambridge. Gus was also a very accomplished trumpet player. For most of his life, and up until a couple of years ago, he was still playing. Gus loved to play alongside his brother Domenic Aloise. He would take any opportunity to do what he truly loved doing and providing extra for his family. Gus, throughout his early life, studied music and would take classes to stay on top of his passion. Gus was the epitome of the word “gentleman”, whenever you met Gus, he was always fastidious about his appearance. His demeanor was gentile, genuine & humble. To know him was to love him.  We have often heard the term, “The Greatest Generation”, well it’s for men & women like Gus. He fit the criteria; he was selfless and had honor, respect for his country & neighbors, and was devoted to his family & love for his fellow brothers in battle. He lived his life on these morals & terms.

He is the beloved husband of the late Domenica C. “Maggie” (Ferraro) Aloisi. Loving father of Dominic D. Aloisi & his wife Linda of Uxbridge, Anthony Aloisi & his wife Doreen M. of Revere & Robert D. Aloisi & his late wife Donna of North Reading. Cherished grandfather of David D. Aloisi & his wife Lisa of West Townsend, Susan M. Greene & her husband Thomas of Douglas, Anthony R. Aloisi & his wife Amie of Haverhill, Joseph D. Aloisi & his wife Melissa of Danvers, Christina M. Scali, R.N. & her husband Paul of Lynnfield, Nicholas R. Aloisi of Portland, ME & Matthew J. Aloisi & his fiancé Christie Martin of Castle Rock, CO. Adored great grandfather of Michael A., Gabriella M., Gianna M., Isabella D., Joseph D., Aubrey, Olivia & Gennaro.
