Uncle Al was a very special man. He could always put a smile on my face. He was quick with a joke, told great stories. He truly just had a way about him. I will cherish the time we spent together. Rest easy. Love you.

To my sweet Aunt Theresa & cousins,
I love you! I can’t imagine the shock + heartache you must be feeling & I’m always praying that our loving, kind, Daddy God will give you the peace and comfort only he can bring. I’ll always fondly remember my Uncle Al in his cute little pjs teaching me how to play allll the card games I know, his little jokes and laugh, watching the news, working out with him at his gym (boy is he a feisty one!) and just sitting chatting and enjoying each other’s company. I love you all soooooo much! All my heart, Gracie ❤️ Xoxoxo

To Aunt Theresa and My Cousins,
While any loss is significant, there are few losses as great as losing a spouse or a parent. Many of my fondest memories are of the times we all spent together growing up. I know that over the years we have told many of these stories time and again, especially the ones about Uncle Al and Uncle Gordon. Uncle Al was one of the best men I have ever known, and I’m glad that I got to know him during my life.
Always remember a free-spirited person like him can never be proclaimed dead. He may not be around in person but his spirit will live on forever in all our hearts. I love you all and wish I could be with you during this difficult time.
Love Always,

I have so many wonderful memories of my Uncle Al that I can fill a book and then some. From going to Florida every winter vacation from school with my parents to spend time together. Oh, and of course my signature move was to break something by accident, but Uncle Al never yelled, like the time I kicked the soccer ball right into the water pipe. Water spraying all over. To visiting with my own family. You always made time for us. Texting you Minion jokes daily when you had your knees operated on to make you laugh. Oh, too many memories to list here for sure. Thank you for all of the the memories. You will be missed dearly my sweet Uncle. Another Angel to watch over us all.
Love, Deb

Thank you Al for being a part of my life for over 48 years when you married my twin sister. You were more of a brother than brother-in-law. There are so many memories that were formed during those years that are unforgettable. Thanks for opening your home to my family every year during winter break. My children formed a strong bond with their cousins during these fun times and that was due to your kindness. We will dearly miss you but are comforted in knowing that there is a special angel looking over us. Until we meet again.....Annette

I started working with Al in 1989. He was on the Walgreens construction team, I was working the IT Computer side. He was a true carpenter, skilled at his job, and I always got "the look" from him when a "little modification" was needed, made me laugh every time. He always had a good dirty joke! We continued to work together in Fort Myers when he took on the role in maintenance(he could fix anything). Once Al retired, things never were the same at our locations, they slowly have fallen apart, hard to find someone who could do it all. He was one of a kind, and will be missed by anyone who ever met him.

I would go down to Florida and visit and even at times stay at his house . He taught me how to play cards and how to bet . When I play cards at the casino I get that from him . When I was in Florida as a young boy he would wake me up at the crack of dawn on weekends to help run his Flea Market stand. He would take me fishing off Fort Myers Pier and I learned many things from him . Last year he got to meet my daughter and he adored her . He will be greatly missed . Love you Uncle Al!!!
