Albert J. Spano, age 90, joined his beloved wife Sandy in heaven on December 31, 2018, surrounded by family.

Albert was a long time resident of Laguna Woods, where he enjoyed being  President of the Bocce Club and a member of the Italian American Club.  Albert became an avid golfer in retirement ultimately rewarded with a prized hole in one! Albert also enjoyed reading, history, political discussions, traveling with friends and family, music, good food and brandy manhattans! Albert lived a full life, growing up in Italy, immigrating to the United States, spending much of his adult life in Wisconsin prior to settling in California with his wife Sandy for their retirement. Albert’s children are his greatest accomplishment and time spent with family was his greatest joy. Albert’s legacy will live on through his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

  1. Our sympathy is with the Spano Family.

    God Bless, The Figueroa’s

  2. Brad and I are thinking of your entire family. We never had the pleasure of spending any time with your dad but after meeting all of his children, we know how special he must have been. He is resting easy with your mom looking down on you all smiling.

    Sending our prayers and love.
