Alexander J. "Sonny" Brogna, a long-time resident of Milton, MA, passed away peacefully on September 19, 2023, at Milton Hospital. He was a kind, friendly, and loving man, known for his warm smile and generous spirit. Born and raised in East Boston, Al was the cherished son of the late Charles “Achille” Brogna and Antoinette (Capone) Brogna.
Al was raised in E. Boston and was a proud graduate of Boston English High School. After graduation, he entered the United States Army and was a proud Veteran of WW II. He later embarked on a successful career as an Engineer with AT&T, a position he held for many years before retiring. His dedication, hard work, and friendly demeanor made him a much-loved figure in the workplace.
Married for 68 loving years to Geraldine K. Brogna (Harrington), Al was a devoted husband and father. He leaves behind his beloved wife Geraldine, his daughter Helen Brogna and her partner Ed Goodwin of Canton, and his sister-in-law, Veronica Harrington of Milton. Also mourning his loss are his two four-legged friends, Bella and Tika, who brought great joy to his life.
Al had a deep commitment to his community and was actively involved in several local charitable organizations. He volunteered his time at St. Mary of the Hills Church and the Faulkner Hospital, embodying the values of service and compassion that were central to his character.
An avid Boston sports fan, Al was a season ticket holder for the New England Patriots for many years. His love for the game was infectious and he was often found cheering on his favorite team surrounded by friends and family. He was also a passionate lover of opera and classical music, frequently attending performances at the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Al's interests extended beyond sports and music. He was a regular at Dunkin Donuts, where he enjoyed his daily coffee and the company of fellow patrons. His love for reading and crossword puzzles kept his mind sharp and his spirit lively and he was also a devout catholic.
In his passing, we remember a man who lived his life with kindness, love, and a friendly smile. Alexander J. "Sonny" Brogna will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege to know him. His legacy will live on in the hearts and memories of his loved ones.Visiting hours at the Dockray & Thomas Funeral Home 455 Washington St. Canton Sunday 3:00 to 5:00 pm.
