Cowboys and Fishermen

Both work hard to provide.

Family safety is everything.

Al was a special blend of pure Brain and unrelenting braun but mostly brain.

And a man that loved his family and his animals.

He had a vision and he will be sorely missed.

For those in the know, he's on the top of the NoRehire Plan now.

I have all the respect in the world for Al and what he achieved during his tenure. I really enjoyed working with him. He was an inspiration as well as an innovator especially towards safety. I'm sure he saved his employers many $$ with his dedication towards safety but I know he was tough but fair.

Best regards to all his family.

In my books, he was a true gentleman of the west.

God Bless him.

All the Best,

He is sorely missed.

Al and I worked together at Dow Chemical, for many years he was my go-to sounding board for a word of wisdom or thoughtful advice. Al was a kind, genuine man who was always there for you.

Deepest sympathy to all of the family. Gordon and I got to know Al at the Chuckwagon and Chariot races. He was the last one to take Gordon on a short road trip before his passing in 2016.
Sincere sympathy from all of my family!
