OBITUARY

Albert M Marcella

April 5, 1942March 17, 2020

Albert M. Marcella “Al, Albie, Dad, Grandpa” died peacefully on Tuesday March 17, 2020 near the loving home he shared with his adoring wife, best friend and soulmate, Dorothy “Dottie” Marcella.

Born April 5, 1942, to Albert R. and Alice Marcella, the second of six children, Al was a caring, loving and devoted son, husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and best friend, as well as a humble athlete, legendary swimmer, golfer, and tennis player. Words fail to capture his true brilliance and the capacity of his heart.

His immeasurable love, caring and concern for his family and friends was his greatest achievement and far and away overshadowed the countless accolades he earned. Being in love with his wife, and the simple pleasure of being with loved ones and friends meant the world to him. With his self-effacing humor, quick wit, willingness and wiliness to offer fond teasing, he had the ability to find and appreciate comicality through life’s challenges.

Al is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Dottie; his four children and their spouses, Kerry and Brian Sevigny, Michael and Jean Marcella, Cammie and John Weston, Janet and Terence O’Brien; his beloved grandchildren, Emma Sevigny, Kyle Weston, Matthew Weston and Wife Kirsten, Michael Marcella, Jason Marcella, Shannon O’Brien and Liam O’Brien. He is survived by three sisters; Carol Sprague, Catherine Picard and Husband Joe, Mary Carey and Husband Leo, and brother Edward Marcella and Wife Mary Catherine. He was preceded in passing by both parents, a younger sister, Alice, and a grandson, Nick Sevigny.

A man of tremendous faith, Al was a dedicated Catholic through life from a young altar server to his sharing and ever presence at mass.

Following Catholic elementary and Malden Catholic High School, Al graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree, in 1963, from Boston College. Continuing his passion for learning, he earned two Master’s Degrees, from M.I.T.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to your favorite charity or to Children’s Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital or Special Olympics would be so appreciated and would represent the same caring Al embodied.

I was lucky enough to marry Al's sister Mary 43 years ago to become part of his extended family. I had known of Al as a legendary swimmer at the Charlestown Boys and Girls Club. Getting to know him over the years was a treat and an honor. You couldn't help but smile when you saw him. He was warm and funny with an infectious laugh, just a good person. Al was incredibly devoted to his family of which he was so proud.
My sincere condolences to Dottie, Kerry, Michael, Cammie, Janet and all his grandchildren.
A life well lived and a peaceful passing. He will be missed RIP

Dear brother, God took you way too soon . We are all left with holes in our hearts. I have too many wonderful memories to share here but I would just like to write that you were an older brother that I looked up to with such pride and love. You had such a great moral compass and your faith helped make you the man you were. I also remember your humor ,compassion and intelligence that made us excited to be around you. You gave us so many memories of thanksgiving gatherings that will last us our life time. Rest in Peace and knowing you are back with Grandma, who adored you ,your parents and sister give me some comfort in this time of sadness. your loving sister Cathy and brother in law Joe

I was lucky to call Albie my brother for 67 years. Smart,athletic, hansom and kind. He married the love of his life and raised four remarkable children. We always had the best Thanksgivings at his house in Milford New Hampshire and the best 4th of July when he put us all in the back of his truck to go to the local pool. Rest in peace my beautiful brother.♥️

I will always remember Al as a warm, loving husband, father and grandfather. He was a soft spoken gentleman with a wonderful sense of humor and an enormous love for his family. My heartfelt sympathies go out to his entire family.

How fortunate am I to have had Al as my older brother...loving, protective, a great role model! He lived an admirable life filled with love and accomplishment...none greater than the beautiful family he raised with his friend and soul-mate, Dottie. Requiescant in pace, Beloved Brother!
