He was predeceased by his parents, his brother Adolph, and his wife of 68 years, Margaret Stickney Undari. Alfio attended schools in Torrington, CT, until December 1944, when he enlisted in the Navy to serve in World War II. He was very proud of his military service and was honorably discharged as Seaman Second Class (AOM) USNR on July 11, 1946. Shortly after his discharge, Alfio attended engineering school and began his career with the Torrington Company. A few years later met his future wife and married on July 1, 1950, in Torrington. In January 1962, Alfio, Margaret and their four children moved to Clinton, SC, where he transferred in as a Project Engineer and was instrumental in starting the Torrington Company/Clinton Bearings Plant. Prior to his retirement from the company in 1990, Alfio spent several years traveling both regionally and internationally as a Technical Advisor for Torrington International. Alfio was a member of Saint Boniface Catholic Church since 1962, during which time he served the church in many capacities: budget and finance, physical plant, and church management. Additionally, he was very active in his community helping with Junior Achievement, Campfire Girls and American Legion. During his retirement, he enjoyed many trips to his beach house, spending time with his large family, working in his garden and doing odd jobs in his workshop.
