Alberto "Albie" Moscoso
June 13, 2012
Alberto Moscoso was born in New York City on Feb 4, 1951.
Albie grew up in Miami, Fla. and graduated from Miami High School in 1970. Falling in love with the Roaring Fork Valley after a visit in 1976, he returned the following year to make Aspen his home.
He was a very handy guy, able to do just about anything. He could repair a car, do the body work and upholster it too! He made maintenance his career, working for Neil Bennett at the Silverglo Condominiums, Harry Uhlfelder, Shaffran Realty and the Prospector Lodge to name a few. About 12 years ago, he migrated to Maui. He worked for the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel and started his own lawn-care business. Albie never forgot his Aspen friends, returning every year to visit.
He was a skier, snowboarder, windsurfer and a superb country dancer. The ladies lined up to have a chance to swing with him. Albie had a generous heart, everyone was his friend. He was quick-witted, creative, very funny and inventive. Does anyone remember the Volkswagen he made into a pick-up truck?
He passed away in Florida after a long battle with cancer. He is survived by his mother, Mary Martinez Stoerkel; sister Carol (Les) Gordon; brother Thomas John Moscoso (Patty); nieces Christine, Robin, Beth and Jennifer and countless friends. Albie was preceded in death by his father, John Moscoso..
A potluck celebration of his life will be held at Newbury Park on June 30, 2012 at 3 p.m. Bring a dish, non-alcoholic beverage, a good Albie story and photographs.
