Former CAS Board of Directors member and retired Foley/ADR mixer Alfred T. Ferrante CAS, passed away on New Year’s Eve, 2020, at Hospice Care in Cape Coral, Florida after a prolonged battle with cancer. He is survived by his brother Christopher.
Al graduated from St. John’s University and held two Master of Arts degrees from New York University. Best known for his TV work (Star Trek, McGyver, Baywatch), Al was a multiple MPSE Golden Reel Award winner, contributed to many Emmy nominated programs, and was the only member of the production staff to have worked on every episode of Star Trek from first to last. In the mid-80s, Al offered his time to serve on the Board of Directors of the CAS. After retirement from the motion picture industry, he returned to his dormant music career, performing and recording in Southwest Florida under the stage name of “Father Al & The Jazz Congregation.” Al was a jazz drummer, trained in his teens at the Gene Krupa/Cozy Cole music studios in New York City. At his request, his remains have been privately returned to a permanent resting place in Hollywood. The CAS wishes to extend our condolences to Al’s family and friends.
