In loving memory of

Albert Spencer Taddei
January 22, 1933 - June 23, 2020

Albert Spencer Taddei, age 87 of Maple Glen PA, died in the early hours of June 23, 2020 surrounded by his children and has returned to the loving embrace of his wife Eileen.

Born in Abington, PA, he was the son of the late Ralph and Mary (nee Porcher) Taddei.

Spencer served in the United States Army during the Korean War and was a proud Union Electrician for over 40 years. He lit up countless shows - his proudest being the annual Philadelphia Flower show for over 17 years as the head electrician at the Philadelphia Civic Center. Spencer was also an active volunteer with the St. Alphonsus Church, School, and the St. Alphonsus Boy Scout Troop - his most memorable scouting experience was canoeing down the Potomac River with his two sons.

He is survived by his children Michael Spencer Taddei of Aston PA, Mary and John DePaul of Willow Grove, Bernadette Spencer Taddei of Maple Glen, Catherine and Grant Rogers of Woodbridge, VA and Matthew and Laura (Gido) Taddei of Malvern. He is the loving grandfather of Anthony and Amy, Richard and Alyssa, Jack, Kevin, Sarah, Vincent, Timothy, Colin, Patrick, Josh, Rachel, Dillon, and Meg and great-grandfather of precious Kyle and Luca. He is also survived by his sisters Marguerite Kilroy of Oreland, PA and Carol Andrusko of Pocono Lake, PA. He was predeceased by his wife Eileen, his brothers Ralph, Gene and Francis and his sisters Mary, Thelma, Philomena, Kathleen and Barbara.

Relatives and friends may call Tuesday for the funeral Mass - 11:00 AM at St. Alphonsus Church 1565 Temple Drive Maple Glen with the Rev. Edward Hallinan, and Rev. Monsignor Brian Hennessy as celebrants. Interment will be in St. John Neumann Cemetery, Chalfont.

The service will observe COVID-19 prevention practices - masks will be required (and provided if needed) as well as social distancing practices. Gathering inside the Church and Narthex is also restricted.

"So many fond memories. I think Mr Taddei taught me to whistle! Definitely was the fun house to play with the tree fort, basketball court, baseball in the back yard. Your dad was the only one that could manage Sandy on a walk. Both your mom and dad kept us all safe and home before the church bells. Thinking of all of you with love. -Theresa"

"I did not have the privilege of meeting Mr.Taddei but a know him from my friend Michael who spoke of him often with great love and affection. Mr. Taddei showed his family by his example how to love, care for, and respect others. His skill and dedication to his career as an electrician can make the family proud. My sincerest sympathies to the family. May you find strength in your memories. Tb"

"So many good memories of being at the Taddei household when we were all kids. The tree fort in the back yard, shooting baskets in the driveway (I thought I was so good at that), all kinds of things that were no doubt brought about by Mr. Taddei. He was a wonderful father and so kind to me whenever I was there playing. I'm so sorry for your loss. Jennifer Elston (Healy)"
