Obituary of Alfred Radosta – Boulder City (1930-2024)

Alfred A. Radosta, age 93 of Boulder City, Nevada, passed away peacefully on May 18, 2024, surrounded by family. He is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Norma, his devoted daughter Violet (Dan) of Las Vegas, NV, daughter-in-law Kathy (Jon) Omaha, NE, brother-in-law Frank (Edie), sister Barbara, and granddaughters Kate (Aaron) and Caroline. Al was preceded in death by his beloved son US Naval Cmdr. Charles (Kathy), his son-in-law Dan (Violet), his brother Charles, and brothers-in-law Eddie and Herbert, aka Snook (Barbara).

Al was born in Riverside, Il. After attending Purdue University, Al flew P-51s for the U.S. Air Force in Korea during the Korean War. After that experience, Al was hired and worked for Northwest Orient Airlines at Mpls/St. Paul Airport for almost 35 years. Al and Norma raised their family in Newport, MN. After retiring, Al and Norma spent a few more winters in Minnesota before moving to Boulder City, NV in 1996. Once they moved, Al and Norma enjoyed traveling by car and seeing much of the western United States in detail. All his life, Al loved building and flying model airplanes. He was also an extremely talented furniture designer and builder. Additionally, Al loved oil painting landscapes and was incredibly talented. Most of Al’s family and friends have at least one of his paintings in their home. Services will take place later this year in Montello, WI. In lieu of flowers, you can make a donation in Al’s name to your chosen charity.
