Aldo “Al” Noah Maldonado, 52, of Ozark passed away on Saturday, March 19, 2022 at Cox South Medical Center in Springfield, MO.
Al was born on October 22, 1969 in St. Paul, MN; the son of Quirino and Martha Maldonado. Al was their only child, and a late-in-life surprise. Al married Margaret “Margie” Helen Farel on September 2, 1994 at Baptist Hill in Elijah, MO.
Al loved music and had notably large collection of over 2,000 CD’s from the 1980s. Even more than music, Al loved his cats, especially the ones he named “Mittens” (all of them).
Because he was an only child, Al took on Margie’s family as his own. He is survived by his wife, Margie of Ozark; his special cat, Mittens; and all of Margie’s siblings: Joe (Sharon) Farel of St. Louis, Sue (Donald) Ledbetter of Gainesville, MO; Diane Farel of Manitou Springs, CO; Becky (Nick) Cultrara of New York; Ruby (Keith) Bailey of Manitou Springs, CO; Carla Brashers of Ash Grove, MO; Candy (Miguel) Mendoza of Glenview, IL; and Frank Farel of Iowa. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents and mother-in-law, Ruth Farel.
