Albert V. Martore
Bedford, NH – Albert Vincent Martore, 87, passed away on Wednesday, July 1, 2015. He was born in Cambridge, MA, on May 16, 1928, the son of the late Giuseppe and Saveria (Perrone) Martore.
Albert served in the United States Navy from 1946 to 1950, as a Petty Officer on the USS Pine Island. While in the Navy, he made a commitment to follow the Lord in the radio shack on board the USS Pine Island.
He was joined in marriage with Mary Ann DeMarco on December 16, 1951.
As an architectural engineer, Albert designed and built the Walt Disney World monorail system and the Logan Airport control tower, among many other buildings and bridges.
In retirement he continued to lend his engineering expertise, designing and building several churches, most notably St. Paul Evangelical Church in Lexington, MA, where he served as a Deacon and Head Usher. Albert was a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Legion.
While he had a distinguished professional career, he was most proud of his family: his four children, Joseph Albert Martore and his wife Gracia, Susan Martore-Baker and her husband Steven, Robert Matthew Martore and his wife Kathy, and Mark Joseph Martore and his wife Libby; and his eight grandchildren, Joseph, Catherine, Lauren, Kristen, Everett, Christopher, Stephen, and Sarah. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Mary, in 2010; and five siblings.
Albert left a legacy of love for his family and friends, of what it means to follow God and give back to others.
