Later the family moved to Yonkers, NY and lived on Elm Street where Alfredo met his wife Paolina Costanzo at Mount Carmel Church. He married Paolina in 1952 and welcomed four children into their home. Alfredo was a dedicated husband and father who was hardworking and rarely took a sick day.

Alfredo also enjoyed collecting world stamps. He was a self taught painter and enjoyed painting, especially after he retired. Most of his paintings are of nature scenes.
