Alfred G. Donofrio, 86, passed away peacefully on June 19, 2014 in Arlington,TX. He was born January 25, 1928 in Rochester, NY to Luigi and Francesca Donofrio.

Al left high school to join the Navy and served in WW II. After returning he joined The Reserves while he completed high school and went to St. Bonaventure University. Al was recalled by the Navy where he proudly served in the Korean War as a Marine Medic. Upon returning home he completed his college degree from St. Bonaventure in Olean, NY.

After completing his degree, Al and his family moved to Dover, DE where he pursued his career. He worked at International Playtex Corp from 1956-1975, during which he moved to Canada for 2 years and then New Jersey where he was the International Controller. Al then moved to El Paso, TX where he worked at Farah International as a VP and Treasurer from 1975-1979. He then moved to Arlington, TX and worked for The Boy Scouts of America as controller from 1979-1990's. Once Al left the Boy Scouts he devoted his time working with a small company, which he had part interest, developing and implementing an accounting software for small businesses.

He then semi-retired during the 1990's, but retirement was not for Al, with his love for accounting he continued to do accounting and taxes for small businesses and individuals into his late 70's.

Al was a true caring person, he was a member of The Knights of Columbus for more than 50 years. He dedicated his volunteer time to Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, Meals on Wheels, welcoming our troops home at DFW airport, the VFW and the American Legion.

Al is preceded in death by his parents, Luigi and Francesca Donofrio, his brothers Pat and Anthony Donofrio and his sister Mary Paris. He is survived by his three beloved children, Diane Chambers of Magnolia, DE, Sharon Shockley of Harrington, DE and son Tom Donofrio and his wife Josephine of Highland Village, Texas, along with his six grandchildren Brian and Michael Chambers, Monica Matthews, Natalie, Marisa and Thomas Donofrio and eleven great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters; Sr. Ann D'Assisi, Yolanda Ruggeri, Eleanor Piendel and a brother, Louis Donofrio Jr., all of Rochester, NY, and a sister Jane Passiano of Hernando, FL.

A visitation for Al will be held Tuesday, June 24, 2014 from 6:00p-8:00p at Moore Funeral Home, and services will be June 25, 2014, at 10:00a, at Most Blessed Sacrament, 2100 N. Davis Dr. Arlington, TX. Donations may be designated in Al's honor to the Wounded Warrior Project.
