Alesio Grasso Obituary

Alesio V. Grasso


1925 – 2023 



   Alesio V. Grasso, “Al” age 98, of Drexel Hill died surrounded by family on December 6, 2023 after a brief illness.  He was predeceased by his parents the late Joseph and Florence (nee Locantore) Grasso and granddaughter Diana Grasso. He is survived by his beloved wife of 74 years Angel (nee Orlando) Grasso, children Joseph (Lois) Grasso, Paul (Nancy) Grasso and  Elise (Anthony) Manzi. Also survived by grandchildren, Teresa (Kyle) Rapposelli, Peter Grasso, Anthony Manzi, Jr., Alec Manzi and great granddaughters Grace and Eve Rapposelli. He was also predeceased by sisters Teresa and Margaret and brothers John, Frank, Tom and Gino. 


 He was born in Camden, NJ.  Like most men who were part of “the greatest generation”, he grew up during the Depression and served his country in the Army during WWII in a tank destroyer battalion. After the war Al worked as a precision pattern maker for RCA in Camden while raising his own family with Angel.


He was a resident of Drexel Hill for over 50 years and a loyal parishioner of St. Dorothy’s Parish.  He derived immense joy from loving his family and friends.  He spent most of his leisure time with his children and grandchildren. He was a lover of Big Band music and attended monthly dances with his wife.  Al was a terrific dancer and even better cook.   


In short, Al was a devout husband, dad, and grandfather and was rewarded by having a long and healthy life.
