In memory of
Alfred J Cammarata
Alfred, "Al" Cammarata passed away peacefully on Friday, May 11th, 2018 at Fairfax nursing center. He was born October 16, 1939 in Pittsburgh, PA to Alfred and Lena Cammarata. After high school, Al served in the United States Air Force. He had a distinguished career with the government, serving posts in Turkey, Indonesia, Sweden, England, and Washington D.C. He later worked for Intelsat, in the field of international satellite telecommunications. He retired at age 55, and became involved with family genealogy, and wrote his memories, "A Remarkable Life, Alfred Cammarata". Al enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and was very proud of his military and government service. He and his wife Nancy also continued to travel extensively in their retirement. His hobbies included HAM radio, civil war reenactments and volunteer service with the Fairfax county archeological association and the USO association. Survivors include his wife of 52 years, Nancy, their daughter Rita, her husband Doug, and grandchildren, Ryan, Kaitlyn and Kyle; also their son Alfred Jr. his wife Holly and grandson Brad. His Brother Marc and his wife Helen as well as many nieces and nephews and family members. He is preceded in death by his parents and brother Mike. A message to my family from his memoir, "A remarkable life"…… "When all is said and done. When the urgency of youth has been served and we reach the sunset of our lives, only one thing in life really matters-family. When my time on this earth is over, do not be sad because I am gone but remember me for how I lived. Oh, how I lived!"
