Albert J. Buglio, Jr

Albert J. Buglio, Jr., a remarkable soul whose warmth and kindness touched countless lives, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2023, at the age of 74. Born in Cranston, Rhode Island, he was the cherished son of the late Albert J. Buglio, Sr. and Jennie Buglio. He was a devoted husband of nearly 50 years to Elizabeth (Betty) Buglio.

Albert’s memory lives on through his family, including his wife, brother Anthony S. Buglio and his wife Jamie of Coventry, Rhode Island, along with the loving generations he touched: his beloved nieces Ashley Guillemette (Christopher) and Jennifer Buglio, and nephews Benjamin and Remi.

Albert’s life was a symphony of passions, and he found joy in each note. His culinary artistry led him to become a top chef, leaving his mark at Players Corner Pub and Villa DiGiorgio. His culinary journey extended to Palm Beach, where he and his wife crafted culinary experiences that warmed hearts and palates. Albert later went on to become a lead baker for both Target and Winn-Dixie and trained dozens of employees. Albert’s love for music and dance, especially Broadway show tunes, added a melodious rhythm to his life. He could recite verses from the stage’s finest with a twinkle in his eye. Albert found wanderlust in the sea breeze, embarking on memorable cruises and heartwarming family reunions.

In 1985, Albert and Betty planted roots in Wellington, Florida, and their spiritual journey flourished. They shared a profound connection with the Catholic faith, serving and guiding through various boards and committees. Albert’s early days as an altar server paved the way for a lifetime of devoted service. His contributions to the growth of St. Therese de Lisieux’s spiritual haven were invaluable and enduring. As an integral part of the local newspaper and magazine team at Newspaper Publishers Inc., Albert’s zest for community and connection left an indelible mark.

Albert’s friendships evolved into family bonds, and his absence leaves an irreplaceable void. His absence is especially profound for his cherished wife, Elizabeth, who finds strength in prayer and trust in the divine plan.

A final farewell for Albert will take place in his hometown at Nardolillo Funeral Home & Crematory, 1278 Park Avenue, Cranston, Rhode Island, where we will honor his life with a visitation on Wednesday, Aug. 23 from 9 to 10 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. at St. Rocco’s Church, Johnston, Rhode Island. He will be laid to rest in the serene embrace of St. Ann Cemetery, Cranston.

Additionally, a memorial service will celebrate Albert’s enduring spirit at St. Therese de Lisieux Catholic Church in Wellington, Florida, on Thursday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m.
