Uncle Al will be missed by many I am sure. A pleasant man who was quick-witted, with a sense of humor, who always had a smile to warm your days. A man's man with a gentle and compassionate heart. I am happy to know he did not suffer in his passing and was rewarded for his life with a peaceful transition and his sister at his side to comfort him. May he rest in peace; God's blessing upon him.

Al was a very sweet man. I would walk my kids past his house on their way to school. He always had a smile and a wave and enjoyed having a chat. He enjoyed seeing the neighborhood kids out and about playing. He will be missed.
