Albert (Al, Daddy, Pa, Moose, Chicken Man) Mario Boggio, 67, passed away, unexpectedingly, on April 27,2016 at his home in Bonita Springs, Florida.
Born in Lodi, NJ to the late Antoinette (Figini) and Flory "Pete" Boggio on January 23,1949.
He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Joy (Orefice); his daughters, Jennifer Gonzalez, her husband Victor of Hazlet, NJ, Allison Boggio of Staten Island, NY; his grandchildren, his beauty, Alexandria, his best buddy, Christopher, his baby Gabriella and his 4 legged grandson, Apollo; his sisters Virginia Untisz (Joseph) of Hazlet, NJ and Christine Loftus (John Steubing) of Little Egg Harbor, NJ.

Al was a carpenter for Local 157 Carpenters NYC for 30+ years before retiring and becoming a full-time "Pa". He was a jack of all trades and master of many. Known as "The Book of Useless Information" and The Music Man", he had the answers to life's imponderables and can name that tune with just a "hmmm hmmm him."

He smiled. He laughed. He ate. He drank. He bowled. He golfed. He fished. He crabbed. He built things. He broke things. He fixed things- thank you zips and duct tape. He had gadgets and gizmos. He had music. He had answers. He did the NY Times crossword in pen while riding the NY subway. He had a love/hate relationship with the NY Yankees and NY Giants. He had Lodi Ram pride. He had incomparable humor. He joked. He pranked. He loved. He loved his friends. He loved his family. He loved his title of "Pa"

His loss is one of life's imponderables. He is missed beyond words.
