Recchia, Alphonse “Al” of Revere on September 16, 2017 at the age of 85. Beloved husband of 54 years to Cynthia Recchia (Paventi). Devoted father of Cynthia Graff and husband Jeffrey of Lynnfield, and Julia Bisconti and husband Nicholas of Lynnfield. Dear brother of John Recchia and his late wife Angela, and the late Peter, Alfred and Giulio Recchia. Cherished grandfather of Zachary and Nicholas Bisconti, and Lauren Graff. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Al was born and raised in East Boston before moving to Revere. He served his country in the United States Army. The family knew him as being a dedicated and hard worker who would help those who immigrated, as his parents once had. Al was a story teller to anyone who would listen and enjoyed the opera and Pavarotti. He would often introduce himself as “Mr. Claremont” being very proud of his work in the insurance industry. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Funeral from the Paul Buonfiglio & Sons-Bruno Funeral Home 128 Revere St, Revere on Wednesday September 20, 2017 at 9:00am.
