Gangster Scarface Al Capone's son -- Alphonse Albert Francis Capone Jr. was born on Dec. 4, 1918 in Chicago to parents Al Capone and Mae Coughlin with congenital syphilis, a serious mastoid infection. He survived a required brain surgery for the disease, but was left partially deaf.
His nickname was 'Sonny'
Sonny went to St. Patrick High School in Miami, FL with Desi Arnez and graduated in 1937. He then attended the University of Miami.
He had four daughters with Diane Ruth Casey whom he married in 1941. Veronica, Teresa, Barbara, and Patricia Capone-Brown. Diane and Sonny divorced in July 1964 and Sonny remarried twice. Albert was married to a woman named America "Amie" Francis. It is not sure if it was his second or third wife but she was listed in his daughters obituary as step mother. We assume she was his third wife.
In 1966, Albert changed his name to Albert Francis Brown, to "erase" the 'Capone' name. He died in 2004 at the age of 85. There is still a question as to which month. Albert died in Florida. He was buried in California.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to the staff of the J. M. Wilkerson Funeral Establishment Inc., Petersburg, VA.
