Zio Lorenzo will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews.  A veteran of World War II, Lorenzo served in the elite 13th Infantry Division Re. In 1952, Lorenzo immigrated to Canada with his new bride and together they began to make a life for their family. He was a co-founder and operator of Alfini Brothers Painting & Decorating for many years. He was a long-time member of the Ciociaro Club of Windsor and worked there until his retirement in 1988, at which time he became the official chauffeur to his grandchildren, driving them to and from school. Lorenzo was an avid soccer fan who loved his team Lazio and never missed a game with his friends on Erie Street. His love of music was evident, as he could often be heard singing Claudio Villa songs with the love of his life, Peppina.
