NORTH ATTLEBORO – Umberto N. “Al” DiTullio, at the age of 92, of North Attleboro, entered into eternal rest peacefully on May 26, 2023 surrounded by his loved ones. He was the beloved husband for 46 years of the late Teresa F. (Buccini) DiTullio who passed away on January 18, 1998.
Born on July 26, 1930 in Castrovalva, Italy, he was a loving son of the late Oliviero and Maria (D’Intino) DiTullio.
Umberto immigrated to the United States in 1947. He worked many jobs and retired after many years of employment as a foreman for P. Cavalieri and Son. He served in the National Guard and was a reservist in the National Guard for 12 years.
A man of strong Catholic faith, he was a longtime communicant of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Church in North Attleboro.
He loved spending time on Cape Cod where he enjoyed quahoging with his family, making his delicious stuffed quahogs to share and cooking on the barbecue. Umberto also enjoyed tending to his vegetable garden and doing yard work. He loved the time he spent with his grandchildren most of all and loved to share his stories of his childhood in Italy with them.
He is survived by his three devoted daughters, Mary Windsor and her husband William of East Brunswick, NJ, Terry Taksar and her husband Bill of North Attleboro, and Anna Luongo and her husband Frank of Rehoboth. He is also survived by his cherished seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
