Fernando A. Baldelli, 98, of Southborough

Southborough – Fernando A. “Nando” Baldelli, 98, a lifelong resident of Southborough and the last of his generation, died peacefully Thursday, July 13, 2017 after a fall. He was the husband of the late Irene (Bertonassi) Baldelli, who died July 14, 2006.

Born in Southborough, he was the son of the late Eugene and Filomena (Serflini) Baldelli.
