  Of Saugus.  Passed away peacefully on November 3, surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Josephine “Dolly” A. (DiBello) DiFlumeri, with whom he shared 58 years of marriage.

   Born and raised in East Boston, Mr. DiFlumeri was the son of the late Vincent and Mary DiFlumeri. He was a retired technician from Polaroid and was a member of the Danvers Fish and Game Club. Alberino was a U.S. Coast Guard Veteran who had served on the U.S.S. Nantucket. He had been a resident of Saugus since 1968.

   Known as “Al” or “Sonny” to all that knew him, he was the ultimate handyman. Sonny could build, fix or give advice (solicited or unsolicited) for any household project. He enjoyed cooking, spending time in his garden and going to hunting camp where he preferred the kitchen to the woods.

   In addition to his wife, Sonny is survived by his three children, Dina Meagher, Albert DiFlumeri and Lyn Mason and her husband Brian, all of Saugus. Sonny’s greatest joy in life was his four grandchildren: James, Jennie, Shea, and Sara. He shared a special bond with each of them and no one could bring a smile to his face like they did.  He was the brother of Anthony DiFlumeri and Vincent DiFlumeri both of Winthrop and the late Lorraine and Josephine DiFlumeri.  Sonny is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

     Relatives and friends were invited to attend visitation in the Bisbee-Porcella Funeral Home, Saugus on Saturday followed by a funeral mass in Our Lady of the Assumption Church.   Interment will be private.

  In lieu of flowers, donations in Alberino’s memory may be made to the Nantucket Lightship at
