Al... or as we usually call you.. Bumpa Al..,

You had a heart for everyone as big as they come.

Zosha, Max and I, we profoundly cherish the times we had with you and will forever be grateful for your abundance of love you showed us over the many years we had together.

Your fatherly/grandfatherly support, your humour, generosity and kindness were always there as a foundation of the family.

You were the rock for us to show us the way to live and to deal with the inevitable challenges of life.

The kids enjoyed hearing stories about your adventures on your motorcycle with Grandma Geri and seeing how happy it made you both as a couple.

It made the kids feel special when you laminated business cards for them.

These are the fond family stories you made. Your legacy.

While it hurts terribly to lose you, along with Terry and Jacob, I will take solace in the thought that you are somehow now reunited with them and the rest of our lost loved ....and that you are watching over the rest of us, playing guitar, singing some old Beatles tunes and at peace.

Most knew you as Al, but in my Family you were given the title of “Big Elk” and a smile covered your face when you herd us calling you. You were a true “character “ in this life that would bring a smile to your friends and Family. Many good memories over the years of work, motorcycling and social gatherings. Stepping up to the challenges of life seemed to be “just routine “ to you Al. So I’ll say enjoy the journey my friend Big Elk.

I remember Al as my best friend’s dad. I remember Al as a proud father and grandfather, a hard worker and a leader; he was super smart and expert at many things. Al was a man of high standards and high integrity. And I can picture his smile, hear his laugh and see the twinkle in his eye even now. Love and sympathy to Geri and Tammy and all the grandchildren.

Thank you for being a true friend and mentor to me. Your steadfast support for Terry and I throughout our various musical endeavors will always mean the world to me. I miss your sharp wit and your go to one-liner, “What are you gonna do?”
All good memories,

There are many fond memories dating back to 1974.
While the visits were few, the great memories are many.
Rest In Peace Uncle Al.

Words cannot express how difficult it has been to watch dementia slowly steal you from me, mom, your grandchildren, and your friends. In a way, you gave us time to prepare for your inevitable passing, but that doesn't seem to make it less painful. I believe, however, that you are finally at peace and that you are reunited with Terry, your siblings and your parents.
I love you and I continue to miss you.
Your "dotter",
