A lifelong Woburn resident Al, was many things to many people .

A very honest and kind hearted soul, he was always very giving to others. Often Al would buy an item he needed and would give it to someone who needed it more!. He had a great compassion for birds and from his window he fed the birds daily and so enjoyed watching them.

One of his great passions though was to take his nieces and nephews on field trips to Canobie Lake Park; and if there were any other children in the neighborhood at the time, he would take them too! “Take them all” were his words. A man of very few words, but when he spoke people always listened.

Sadly, Al was predeceased by his parents and siblings Ann, Marion, Americo ”Rico”, and Gaetano “Tony” Nicosia.

Al is lovingly survived by his sister Mary A. White, her husband Harold, brothers Paul D. and Joseph J. Nicosia, all of Woburn and sister in law of Margaret Nicosia of Winchester, and many dear nieces and nephews. Also survived by his “special families”, the Pappas Family along with Dennis and Mary Rader. Funeral arrangements are private, and under the direction of the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main St. Woburn.
