Alfred Pulcino III

March 28, 1944 — May 11, 2024

Alfred Pulcino III, a dedicated son, loving father, cherished grandfather, and beloved brother, uncle, and friend, passed away on May 11, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love, laughter, and service that will be remembered by all who knew him.

Born in 1944, Al led a life filled with adventure and devotion. After graduating from Edison Technical High School, he bravely served his country in the US Air Force before embarking on a successful career as a commercial electrician with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 86. Al's adventurous spirit led him to become a "Traveler" electrician, taking him to various locations including New York City, Waynesboro, Georgia, and Maui, Hawaii.

In retirement, Al continued to serve his community with passion and dedication. He volunteered his time with various charitable organizations including the local Shriners, American Legion, and VFW, while also serving on the social committee of his local union.

A longtime resident of the Town of Holley, Orleans County, New York, Al was deeply rooted in his community. He will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, and unwavering willingness to help others.

Alfred is survived by his three children, Dawn Pulcino, Alfred Pulcino IV (Tammy), and Melissa Pulcino, his former wife Marlene Pulcino as well as his four siblings: Sandra Lindblad (Richard), Cynthia Pulcino-Green (Warren - deceased), Christine Lewandowski (Steve), and Frederick Pulcino (Sherri). He also leaves behind eleven grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren, along with numerous nieces, nephews, and friends who will cherish his memory.

He was predeceased in death by his father, Alfred Pulcino Jr., mother Mary C Pulcino, brother Roger Pulcino, and sister Paula Jo Pulcino.

When he wasn't working or volunteering, Al found joy in entertaining others as a Shriner Clown and a Santa Claus College Graduated Santa, bringing happiness and joy to countless children, adults, and believers throughout Western New York.

Though Al may no longer be with us in person, his spirit will live on in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know him. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered for his kindness, laughter, and unwavering dedication to spreading joy to others.

Family and friends are invited to attend his Mass of Christian Burial FRIDAY in St. Mary’s R.C. Church-Holley beginning at 10am with Military Honors to follow after Mass.
