Albert “Al” James Caterino passed away at his home with his beloved family at his side on Tuesday morning, July 19, 2016. The loving husband of Marjorie R. “Margie” (Maguire) Caterino, he was eighty five years old.

Born in Arlington, he was the proud son of the late Albert E. and Rachel M. (Casazza) Caterino.

Al was born, raised and educated in Arlington, graduating AHS in 1950. He then enlisted in the US Navy and proudly served his country aboard the USS MIDWAY. In 1954, he married his High School sweetheart. They moved to North Woburn a short time later, and over the next 62 years, they made a happy and loving home for their 5 children.

In 1956, Al began a long career with the Raytheon Corporation, serving as an Electronics Purchasing Agent, and manager in several departments. After retiring in 1992, Al held various jobs in several local businesses and served over 10 years as a crossing guard at Eaton Ave. and Mishuwam Rd.

Al and his wife pretty much enjoyed being home bodies. When they traveled, they enjoyed day and weekend trips throughout New England. Some of their favorite vacation spots were W Yarmouth on the Cape, York Beach, Maine, Sugarbush, Vermont and various spots throughout New Hampshire.

One of Al’s greatest passions was cooking a good Italian meal for his family. The feasts he created at the holidays are the sources of many happy and fond memories. He also enjoyed playing his lottery numbers, and a good game of cards at home and with friends at the St. Anthony’s Club. Lately, he had a lot of fun playing his iPad poker games. Al loved his New England sports team, especially the Boston Red Sox who he followed from his youth. Often you could find Al at Ferullo Field watching the young baseball players just for the joy of it. He was also an active and popular member of the Towanda Club.

Al was a man of great faith. He was an active participant in St Anthony Parish, volunteering as an usher at the seven-thirty Mass for many years. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus. Al lived a life that was full. Family, Faith and Friendship are three words that will always be synonymous with Al. He will also be remembered for his willingness to help out somebody in need.

Along with his parents, he was predeceased by his loving daughter Maureen in 1991.

Al is survived by his wife of 62 years, Margie; his 4 children Nancy J. Byko and her husband Peter of NH, Thomas A. Caterino of Melrose, David J. Caterino of VT, and Kathleen Christo of NH. Dear brother of George Caterino of Walpole. Loving and devoted grandfather of Shannon M. and Brendan R. Slack, Carolyn M and Peter John (PJ) Byko, and Jenna L. and Leah M. Christo. A Funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 9 a.m. with a Funeral Mass at St. Anthony’s Parish at 10 a.m. Relatives and friends are cordially invited to attend Calling hours on Friday, July 22, 2016 from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made in Al’s memory to Camp Takumta, 77 Sunset View Road, South Hero, VT 05486 and/or ADA Camp Carefree, PO Box 2118, Wolfeboro, NH 03894.

    My husband Michael enjoy being an Usher along with Al and the others.One funny thing Al used to do to me is when he was passing the basket, he would make-believe he was going to tap the basket at me and I would yell a very little in church and we both would laugh. Coming home from work I used to see him at the corner crossing the kids he was a crossing Guard, I would yell out (Hi Al)how are you hitting them.He use to play KENO. God bless you Al,rest in peace.
