Albert J. Pinto, 58, residing in Swarthmore, PA, formerly of Yeadon, PA, died Monday, August 20, 2018. The son of Albert P. and Barbara (Winters) Pinto, he is survived by his six siblings: Barbara (Dennis) Matousch, Lisa (Robert) Trucksess, Thomas (Susan), Joseph (Kimberly), Matthew (Maryanne), and Ann (Dean) McCarney, as well as twenty-three nieces and nephews and two great-nieces. He is also survived by his aunt and uncle, Alyce and William Mc Falls and aunt Barbara Pinto and many loving and devoted cousins.
A 1977 graduate of Yeadon High School, a 1981 graduate of Temple University (B.A., business management), and a seminarian at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, Albert was a scholar who spent the last thirty years of his life using the gift of an extraordinary intellect, a deep love of his Catholic faith, and a passion for truth to research and translate previously untranslated writings of St. Albert the Great from their original Latin into English. While studying at the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (“the Angelicum”) in Rome, he assembled a comprehensive collection of St. Albert’s works and made them available. Referring to this great Doctor of the Church, Al said, “He was the last man who knew everything.”
Albert enjoyed playing chess and billiards, but his driving passion was for ideas and the symphony of truth given to the world by God. Gentle by nature—and often misunderstood due to his Mensa-caliber intellect—Albert lived a solitary but fulfilling life in his pursuit of the truth and the desire to reintroduce the world to the intellectual treasures of St. Albert the Great and his acclaimed student, St. Thomas Aquinas. In faith, his family and close friends believe that he now has the answers to the profound questions he pursued throughout his life.
