Anthony "Tony" Dominic Alfano, 84, a longtime resident of Stoughton, died early Monday, July 12, 2021 at the Copley at Stoughton Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. He was the beloved husband of the late Shirley Ann (Clark) Alfano. Born in Hartford, CT, he was a graduate of Newington High School and attended Hillyer College in Hartford. Mr. Alfano was a career salesman and executive. He started out working for Metropolitan Life Insurance, and then he spent almost two decades with Alberto-Culver traveling throughout New England as the district manager. He retired after many more years as a health and beauty aids sales executive with All East Enterprises in Canton. He was a parishioner of the former Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Stoughton and then St. Mary Catholic Church in Randolph. When he was younger, he was a member of the Air National Guard and the Knights of Columbus, and he coached his youngest son in youth soccer. Following his retirement, he frequently accompanied his dear wife to her quilting shows, craft fairs, and parties. He volunteered at the Stoughton Historical Society. He also enjoyed gardening, 3-D puzzles, handicrafts, working on his computer, and spending time with family and friends.

He is survived by his sons: Rev. Michael A. J. Alfano of Natick; Daniel T. Alfano and his wife Tina of CA; Stephen D. Alfano and his wife Agnes of CA; and Joseph C. Alfano and his wife Cheryl of Methuen. He was the devoted son of the late Dominic Alfano and the late Maddalena (Pandolfi) Alfano. He was the loving brother of the late Joseph D. Alfano. He was the cherished grandfather of Zachary Alfano, Jacob Alfano, and the late William Raff and is also survived by his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Wieloch, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins, all of whom he treasured.

Tony's Funeral Mass and a celebration of his life will be held at St. Mary Church, 221 N. Main Street (Rt. 28) in Randolph on Thursday, July 15 at 11:30 AM. Burial will follow at St. Mary Cemetery, Randolph.

In lieu of flowers, charitable contributions may be made in his memory to the Lupus Foundation of America, 2121 K Street NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC 20037.
