Owner of Sorrento's Deli in CC dies

Albert, owner of Sorrento's Italian Deli (a celebrated specialty shop located for many decades on Sepulveda a bit north of Slauson) passed due to a sudden heart attack last week. Services were held this past Tuesday. No details on the future status of his shop. He is survived by his wife and a son who lives out of state. Condolences to them and thanks Albert for all the many years of great food and friendly service.

  1. Awww, sorry to hear that. I've been frequenting them for years, even when I lived in Pasadena.

      I'm really to hear the news. Albert was a really nice guy. His wife is a sweetheart too, my sincere condolences to his family.

    2. Was he the older man that sometimes worked the register? Sorry to hear it.

        That's him. I heard 2nd hand that he died at the store but am not certain if that was actually the location where he had the heart attack. I believe he died almost immediately but again I'm not clear on these exact details.

        The store remained open as of yesterday..

        Why this post has been moved away from the board frequented by the vast majority of individuals who would have an interest in it frankly amazes me. Or on second thought, doesn't.

      2. Sorry, God Bless
