Albert J. Meninno Sr. of Canton, Lakeville, and Mattapoisett died unexpectedly April 19, 2021. He was 83 years old. Al was born and raised in Canton in a family that included 6 brothers and 7 sisters. His upbringing in a family that size created countless memories and wonderful stories that he shared throughout his life. Al proudly served in the United States Navy, was a cabinet maker, self-employed carpenter and landscaper. He played sports much of his life. He also loved watching the Red Sox, Patriots, Bs and Cs and his living room was often the gathering spot for all the important games over the years. Al loved cooking for his family and friends at every major holiday. He enjoyed spending time with his sons and daughters and got great joy watching his grandkids grow up into young adults. His daily phone call with his brother Tony was how he started his day as they hashed out all sports topics. He was the beloved son of the late Rocco and Theresa Rose Meninno.
