Albert R. Mazzoni, 91 of Port Charlotte, Florida spent most of his life being totally deaf and partially blind. But that all changed on April 29, 2021 when the Good Lord called him home. He was a 100% Disabled Veteran of the United States Army and was a machinist in the Frankford Arsenal in Philadelphia. He was a proud American who lived by “Duty, Honor Country”. He was an original “picker” before picking was popular. As a young man, he loved the Sunday night card games under the stars and olive vines. He moved to Port Charlotte in 1975 and spent his time crafting 3-D wooden plaques depicting the Florida Seaside and fishing shanties and would travel to different open-air markets to sell his wares. He enjoyed all types of woodworking.
He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Margaret “Peggy” and his only daughter Sharon (John) Hartzell. He is survived by his sons, Barry J. and Joseph A. (Jennifer) Mazzoni; 9 grandchildren; 23 great grandchildren; brother Joseph (Margie) Mazzoni; sister Angelia Moore and many nieces and nephews.
Military services will be held Friday, June 11, 2021 at the Sarasota National Cemetery at 12:30 pm in Sarasota, Florida.
