Al left high school to join the Navy and served in WW II. After returning he joined The Reserves while he completed high school and went to St. Bonaventure University. Al was recalled by the Navy where he proudly served in the Korean War as a Marine Medic. Upon returning home he completed his college degree from St. Bonaventure in Olean, NY. After completing his degree, Al and his family moved to Dover, DE where he pursued his career. He worked at International Playtex Corp from 1956-1975, during which he moved to Canada for 2 years and then New Jersey where he was the International Controller.

Once Al left the Boy Scouts he devoted his time working with a small company, which he had part interest, developing and implementing an accounting software for small businesses.

So sorry to hear about Al's passing. He was one of my favorite people ever. We worked together for many years at the Jewelry Mfg company. He was a gem. RIP sweet one.

As I hadn't heard from Al for so long, I was just wondering what had happened to him.
I'm so sorry to read about his passing away.
He was for sure a great person, a true patriot and a wonderful character who always cared for others
He will also be truly missed on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.

My bother Al will be truly missed. He was a very caring and happy person, never a dull moment when he was around. We always had a great time and many laughs when he would visit me in Florida and stay with me. I also remember the good times I had when I was with the family in Olean, New York for 2 summers when I was a teen ager, He will always be in my heart and prayers, I love you Al, and will miss you very much.

Al was such a kind and caring person. I knew Al through my father. They were good friends and hopefully they are playing a round of pool and sharing a cold one!
