  • Lucy, Bob & family- We’re so sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, we didn’t realize the calling hours were last night and services this morning. My parents were so sad hearing about Al’s passing, and will be disappointed they were unable to attend the services. We will work to get them together with Lucy over the next few weeks. Al was one-of-a-kind. Both he and Lucy were such a big part of my parents’ lives – best of friends for 60+ years. He was a true friend – doing anything he could to help out. I will never forget – EVERY time I saw him – we would shake hands – and he would do his best to squeeze my fingers hard – it was our own, special ‘hello’. Great guy, lasting memories. RIP dear friend.

  • Condolences to the Talloni family. My name is Lori Russo. So sorry that I didn’t know of Al’s passing. My Dad is Bob Russo who was a retired Deputy Fire Marshal in Norwalk. He also passed away in May 2010. I have very fond memories of Al. I spent much of my childhood visiting my Dad at the different Norwalk Fire Departments with my Mom. As a child I remember Al being my Dad’s auto mechanic. We all had many laughs together. May he rest in peace.
