4/6/2017

 

Alberto Leggieri, age 82, of Wayne, passed peacefully at home while surrounded by his family, on Thursday, April 6, 2017.

Alberto was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he was raised and lived until he was thirty-four years old. In Buenos Aires he followed in his father’s footsteps working as a tailor making custom clothes. In 1957, he married for the first time and was blessed with his first child, Gladys. Determined to give them a better life, they migrated to the United States in pursuit of the American Dream.

After a few years from separating from his first wife, Alberto met Fabiola. They were both fortunate enough to find love for the second time around and married on March 28, 1974. They created a new home in Bloomfield, NJ with Fabiola’s daughter Gina. In 1980, they were blessed with the birth of his only son, Albert, who was his pride and joy. As a family they moved to Wayne, NJ in 1986. With Fabiola by his side, he evolved into a savvy entrepreneur from manufacturing clothing to finding his true love in real estate. Together, Alberto and Fabiola were able to achieve Their American Dream for their three children.

Alberto will be remembered as a gentle soul. He was a caring, compassionate, generous, and honest person who tried to help everyone he crossed paths with. He was a family man who enjoyed traveling to visit his relatives in Argentina and Colombia.

He was the loving husband of Fabiola (Romero) Leggieri; devoted father of Gladys Leggieri of Boynton Beach, FL, Gina Lucio of Miami, FL, and Albert Leggieri and wife Dana of Wayne; cherished grandfather of Linda, Ray, Bianca, Esabella and grandpuppies Reggie and Riley; dear brother of Elsa Ferraro of Buenos Aires, Argentina; as well as many nieces, nephews, and extended family. He was predeceased by his parents Alberto and Rosa Leggieri, and his first wife Maria Vertone.

Friends may visit with the family from 4-8 PM on Monday, April 10, 2017 at the Vander May Wayne Colonial Funeral Home, 567 Ratzer Road, Wayne.

Fabiola, today we remember not only the man who died, but also, he who led an honorable life. In our hearts are the memories of your husband, father, grandfather and friend. We may never fathom how difficult the loss is for you, please be assured that you are in our thoughts, and his soul in our prayers. If one day you will want to see him again, do not look anywhere because you will never find him. If one day you will miss him, search in your heart, there you can feel him, be with him and embrace him. For the person can only be physically gone but never the life lived and the memories shared. Have faith and be strong.

Fabiola and Albert, we are greatly saddened by your loss. Don Alberto was a beloved husband, father and friend. From the bottom of my heart, I can truly say that knowing him was an honor and privilege. He will be dearly missed. "Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved." (Psalm 55:22)
