James A. Alderuccio, 101, of Bristol, passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.
Born in New Britain on March 17, 1919, James was a son of the late Cesear and Beatrice (Mezzio) Alderuccio. He lived in Bristol most of his life and retired from the US Post Office in 1981. He was a United States Navy Veteran serving during WWII, and a member of St. Matthew Church. His greatest joys in life by far were his family and his love of travel.

James is survived by three grandchildren, Jeffrey Pelletier and his wife, Tracy, James Pelletier and his wife, Susan, and Cheryl Pelletier all of Bristol; two great-granddaughters, Nicole and Jillian Pelletier; and many nieces and nephews.
