Albert “Butch” Pisani, 87, of Pittsfield, MA, died Saturday, February 26, 2022 surrounded by the love of his family in the comfort of his home.
Born in Pittsfield, MA on March 10, 1934, Butch was the son of the late Biaggio and Teresa Bonanno Pisani. He was a very social man, who found pleasure in golf, horse racing and loved the company of people alongside his involvement in numerous organizations throughout the Berkshires, to include UNICO, GEAA, East Side Men’s Club and the Italian American Club. Butch enjoyed organizing charity work, particularly for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. He worked at General Electric for thirty years, retiring in 1993 as Union President of IUE Local 255 and also served on the Pittsfield Liquor Licensing Board for three decades. Although he retired from General Electric, Butch’s employment record did not end there. Over the years, he worked as a bartender, was a Cabulance Driver, and was also employed at Carr Hardware.
Butch served his country in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict. On August 26, 1977 he married the former Katherine Hubbel.
In addition to his wife, Kathy, Butch is survived by his children, Benjamin (wife Susan) Pisani of Spearfish, SD; Anthony Pisani or Auburn, CA; daughter T (husband Ron) Jablanski of Worcester, MA; Nancy (husband Todd) Hunter of Murrieta, CA; Suzi Q (husband Constantine) Pisani of Nyborg, Denmark; and Michael (wife Carrie) Pisani of Pittsfield. He was also the beloved Grampa to many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Additionally, Butch leaves his brother Ralph (wife Donna) and sister Bunny O’Donnell, all of Pittsfield, MA and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his son, Albert Pisani, Jr., daughter Barbara Pisani, his brother Dominic Pisani and his sister Mary Atchison.
