Albert A. “Al” Mirabito passed away at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital surrounded by his family on Friday, December 15, 2023. He was 94 years old.


Al was born on April 13, 1929, in North Tonawanda, NY, and as a young child moved to Norwich with his family. He attended Norwich Schools before he joined the United States Navy at age 17. While in the Navy, he was stationed on four carriers and worked on airplane engines. Following his honorable discharge, he came back to Norwich and worked at Smith Ford and on the railroad. In 1953, Al began a career with the former General Laboratories Associates in Norwich. Following several company name changes, Al retired from the company in 1989.
