Costanzo “Stan” Lalli, 100, husband of the late Angelina M. (Buco) Lalli, passed away July 20 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Maynard, he was the son of the late Antonio and Maria (Baccari) Lalli. Raised and educated in Maynard, he was a graduate of Maynard High School’s class of 1935. After graduation he served his country in the United States Army during World War II, stationed in North Africa, and was honorably discharged.
