Albert G. Yaghy, age 76, passed away with his daughter by his side, on Sunday, January 13, 2019.

Albert was born in Utica, the son of the late George and Mae (Alam) Yaghy. He was a graduate of T.R. Proctor High School and Mohawk Valley Community College. He also continued his education at Utica College.

From 1961 through 1964, he served in the US Army stationed in Korea, following the war. On February 5, 1966, Albert married Sandra Surace and shared an amazing 48 years of marriage until her passing in 2014. After retiring from the US Postal Service, his love of golf and bowling gained him lifelong friendships with the the Guys from Valley View and Crestwood Golf Courses and Pin-O-Rama Bowling Alley. Al shared his fathers love of gardening and his mothers love of cooking. You could often find him making a pot of sauce or his famous grape leaves, while putting on a pot of coffee for all who stopped by. Al was also known for his self-taught carpentry skills, having made exceptional furniture for family and friends.

Albert is survived by his daughter, Jennifer Mastrangelo, her husband, Andy and beloved grandson, Andrew James. He also leaves his son, Albert, daughter-in-law Holly, cherished granddaughter, Taylor Mae and a furry grand dog, Chubs; sisters, Beverly and her husband, Scott Phillips, Georgianne Kobas, and Christine and her husband, Jeffrey Baker; brothers, Robert and Michael Yaghy; in laws, Sylvia and Tony Carlo, Felicia and Luke Medici, Joanne and Rocky Marino, Judy and Roger Bier, and Joe and Clem Surace; and also several nieces, nephews and cousins, with whom he shared very close and special relationships, especially his cousin, Brian Alam and best friends, Billy and Donna Colucci and Frank and Anita Cannistra.

He was predeceased by his parents; brother, Jimmy; sister, Anna Mae and her husband, Bobby Conley; brother-in-law, Anthony Surace; nephew and godson Jeffrey Sessa; and several other family loved ones.

The family would like to thank Dr. Jawad Shaikh for his exceptional care of Al, the staff of Faxton St. Lukes Cancer Center and the 6th floor staff of St. Lukes Hospital.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend Alberts Mass of Christian Burial with Military Honors on Friday at 11 am at Our Lady of Rosary Church. The family will receive visitors following mass. Private interment will be beside his wife in Calvary Cemetery.

My condolences to his siblings, his two children, two grandchildren, and his friends as well as the rest of the family. Being his niece was a joy, he was always smiling. I will miss him terribly.
