July 30, 1930 - April 4, 2021
Aldo Richard Crespi, 90, of Pittsfield, passed away on Sunday, April 4, 2021. Born in Pittsfield, MA, on July 3, 1930, the son of the late Marco and Jenni Entruini Crespi, he graduated from Pittsfield High School with the class of 1948. Aldo was a Korean War Veteran. He enlisted in the United States Army in February of 1952, where he proudly served his country until his honorable discharge in April of 1960. During his time in the military, Aldo earned many honors, such as The Army of Occupational Medal in Germany and the National Defense Service Medal. He was especially proud of his service, particularly of his rank in the CO B 40th TK BN 4th Infantry Division. Later in life, Aldo was a member of the American Legion Post 155. After his time in the army, Aldo became a Master Carpenter, working for “Knobby” Marchetto. He built many of the homes in Pittsfield and was recognized as one of the best finishing carpenters in the area. For 60 years, he never missed his after-work outing to DelGallo’s, where he would socialize with his good friends, most notably Remo DelGallo and Joe Zatoski. He loved all his DelGallo friends, as well as those at Eastside (not to mention their pizza)! Among many things, Aldo was an avid Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots fan. He loved the game of golf and jumped at any opportunity to play a round. Aldo was predeceased by his beloved wife of 43 years, the former Barbara Dresser LeClair, whom he married on May 8, 1964. Barbara passed away in June of 2007. He is survived by his son, Marc R. Crespi, as well as his stepdaughters, Doreen Magnano, who was his loving caregiver, and her husband Vincent, and Donna LeClair of Mount Vernon, WA. He leaves his dear grandchildren, Gabe and Leah Crespi and Nicole O’Neil, as well as his 5 great grandchildren. Besides his wife and parents, Aldo was predeceased by his brother, Edward.
