Born in Sant’ Angelo in Grotte, Provincia of Campobasso, Italy on June 12, 1940, he was a loving son of the late Nicola and Filomena (Bertone) Bertone.
Alex grew up and began his education in Italy. In 1955, his family immigrated to the United States and settled in Franklin. He was educated in Franklin schools and continued his studies, attending Northeastern University to become a Draftsman and later an Engineer.
