Obituary

Alfonso Pilla, 70, passed away on February 7, 2019 surrounded by his loving family, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Alfonso was born on October 4, 1948 in Colle Sannita, Italy, son of the late Angelo Pilla and Vincenza Boscarelli. Alfonso always cherished and had fond memories of his beloved hometown Colle and his youth. In 1972, Alfonso immigrated to the United States.

Alfonso is survived by his wife of 49 years, Libera, his daughter Giorgia Stabile and son-in-law Richard. His two grandsons, Louis and RIchie were the loves of his life and his “champions”, His face lite up with pride and joy each time he saw or spoke of them. Alfonso was predeceased by his daughter Vincenza, sister Pasqualina and brother Giuseppe. He is also survived by his sisters Maria, Concetta and Teresa.

Alfonso was a kind, loving and personable man. He had a heart of gold. He was funny and had a sarcastic sense of humor. He especially enjoyed to sit around the table with family and friends, share stories and have heated discussions. The stories that he shared will live on. In the fall, he searched for and picked wild mushrooms. In the winter months he would take care in making sure his homemade sausage came out just right. In the spring, Alfonso carefully watched over and nurtured his garden. In the summer months he looked forward to returning to Italy to reunite with his family, to overlook his balcony and to walk through piazza and to meet up with life-long friends from his youth.

Alfonso had no greater love in life than Louis and Richie. We will remember you Nonno Fo when we have joys we wish to share with you. We will remember you when we are weary and in need of strength. We will remember you when we have achievements based on yours. You are a part of us and will remember you each and every day. We know that you will walk by our side. Nonno Fo, you are our “champion.”

Alfonso was loved by many and will be deeply missed by all.

This is George, Michele and Libera’s son. My wife, Nicole and I send our condolences and Prayers to the family. I have great memories working with Alfonso during the times I worked with dad, construction in the city. In the morning Alfonso and myself always walked together to the corner store to get a cup of coffee. After purchasing the coffee and went outside, Alfonso poured more then half the coffee on the ground. I said “Alfonso what the heck did you do that for”? He replied “George, in Italy when we drank coffee it was just a small amount not like these stupid Americans do? And we laughed about it for a long time. And, every time we got coffee together I would laugh at him before he spilled most of the coffee on the ground. It was our kind of laugh together that we had. I will cherish every moment we had together in my heart. God is good and Alfonso is now in a place of Love and tranquility and forever in the arms of our savior Jesus Christ. Love to the family,
George & Nicole Pilla
