Connecticut Post (Sunday) - - Life Tributes -

Al­berto A. Fazen­deiro, age 92, of Shelton en­tered into rest on Tues­day, Novem­ber 20, 2018 at his home with his lov­ing fam­ily by his side. Al was born in New Bed­ford, MA on Oc­to­ber 7, 1926 son of the late An­to­nio and Maria ( Bellini) Fazen­deiro. He was raised by his grand­par­ents in Gou­veia, Por­tu­gal. As a young man he moved back to the United States to pur­sue an ed­u­ca­tion in Cal­i­for­nia, but only made it to Dan­bury where he met his wife of 63 years Joyce Carol Skelly. Al was a man­u­fac­tur­ing en­gi­neer for 35 years at AVCO Ly­coming where he helped pro­duce ma­te­ri­als that greatly en­hanced the per­for­mance and dura­bil­ity of the tur­bine en­gine. He also worked on top se­cret mil­i­tary projects through­out his ca­reer. He kept those se­crets to his grave. Al proudly served with the Army dur­ing WWII. He en­joyed grow­ing veg­eta­bles in his gar­den, read­ing on­line, physics and math­e­mat­ics. He loved his fam­ily and was sur­rounded by his daugh­ters, Dar­lene Min­grone and her hus­band Bob of Shelton and Cindy Gaudino and her hus­band Mike of Port St. Lu­cie, Florida. He found plea­sure in tu­tor­ing his grand­daugh­ters Ariel and Feli­cia Min­grone in math, sci­ence and taught them how to swim. Al was a bril­liant man and his mem­o­ries as a pa­tri­arch of the Fazen­deiro fam­ily will be cher­ished for­ever. Al is pre­de­ceased by his broth­ers, Mac, Gus and Jack Fazen­deiro. His fu­neral ser­vices are pri­vate.
