Obituary Alphonse ‘Al’ Lembo

By Mary Katherine Stump OCEAN RIDGE — Alphonse “Al” Lembo of Ocean Ridge died Nov. 23 at the age of 96. He was a 30-year resident of Ocean Ridge, and an active member of the Hypoluxo community. “Al may have resided in Ocean Ridge, but his heart resided in Hypoluxo,” said Hypoluxo Mayor Kenneth Schultz. Mr. Lembo was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., and for many years owned and operated the All Boros Building Materials Company there. “It was a building supply yard where you would go to get all of your building materials, before Home Depot existed,” said his daughter Margaret Lembo, a Lantana resident. He was active in the Lion’s Club while in Brooklyn, and later the Lantana Kiwanis Club. He spent his entire life working in the building and real estate industry, later founding and operating Hypoluxo Storage in 1981 after his move to Ocean Ridge in 1975. “There is a Lembo Circle in Clearwater because his father was a builder as well. Building was his life, “ said Ms. Lembo. “My father was very self-motivated, and very entrepreneurial,” said Ms. Lembo. He worked for himself his entire life, and was always helping other people and getting to know his neighbors.” Mr. Lembo was preceded in death in 1997 by his wife of 40 years, Antoinette Lorenzo Lembo. He is survived by three children: Nicholas Lembo of Brooklyn, N.Y., Mary Ann Garofala of Long Island, N.Y., and Margaret Ann of Lantana; four grandchildren and one great granddaughter. Funeral services were held Nov. 27 at the Boynton Memorial Chapel, Boynton Beach.
