May 4, 1936 - January 22, 2018
On January 22, 2018, after a brief but courageous battle with Stage IV Giloblastoma, and most appropriately on the 19-year anniversary of the passing of his own beloved father, Albert Paul Lospinoso ascended to that great casino and racetrack in the sky which ultimately awaits all of the faithful Italian goodfellas and goombas, where the gambling tables and betting windows never close, and no one ever runs out of money.
Albert was born May 4, 1936 in Elizabeth, New Jersey to the late Mr. Nicholas Anthony Lospinoso Senior, and Mrs. Angelina Lospinoso. He graduated Thomas Jefferson High School in 1953, and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical Engineering from Lehigh University in 1957. After serving in the United States National Guard, and thereafter following a brief stint at U.S. Metals, he went on to enjoy a phenomenally successful career as an engineer and businessman at RSR Corporation, ascending to Executive Vice President, and ultimately President. Following his full-time retirement from RSR, he continued to hold membership positions on the Board of Directors at both Quexco Incorporated and Eco-Bat, which are also world-renowned industry leaders in metals recycling and refining. He also held a board membership position at Burger Boat Company, which is actually pretty remarkable because he did not know a damn thing about boats, nor did he ever want to own one.
Albert was eternally grateful for the life-long camaraderie and friendship of his esteemed business colleagues Mr. Howard M. Meyers and Mr. John A. DePaul, who were both an integral and indispensable part of Albert’s success throughout his phenomenal business career.
Albert was truly a remarkable man, with unmatched charm, wit, fashion sense, and sophistication in both a personal and professional context. He prioritized unsurpassed academic and professional excellence, and providing the best possible care and support for his family, as these two core principles drove nearly everything that he ever did or aspired to do.
Albert was a life-long passionate follower of the New York Yankees, the New York Football Giants, and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Always a firm believer that “you always get what you pay for, either way,” Albert was singularly and enthusiastically devoted to Cadillac and Jaguar motorcars,
Patek Philippe watches, Brioni suits, and Sig-Sauer P226 & P228 9mm handguns loaded with the Winchester 9mm +P+ jacketed hollow-point ammunition emblazoned with the “For Law Enforcement Use Only – Not For Retail Sale” warning label on the box.
There was simply no one else like Albert, nor will there likely ever be again for quite some time, if at all. He was truly the kind of person that anyone would be immensely proud to know, and be even more proud to be able to call a friend.
Left to forever cherish his memory and the legacy of his amazing and remarkable life are his only son and only child Jonathan Daniel, callsign “Johnny D.,” who was forever Albert’s best buddy and best friend, former spouse Geraldine Lospinoso, who always remained a life-long close confidant and friend, and was the only person present with Albert when he finally passed at Medical City Dallas, longtime girlfriend and special companion Madeline Ayoub, sisters Linda and Rose, brother Richard, brother-in-law Gerald, and many nieces, nephews, and other cherished friends and colleagues. Albert was predeceased by his beloved parents, sister Marie, and younger brother, FBI Special Agent Nicholas Anthony Lospinoso Junior.
