He married the love of his life in 1964. During their life together they enjoyed traveling, hiking, hosting dinner parties, going to plays, and enjoying life. They had one child, Theresa.
Algie retired from Navistar after 34 years of service. During this time, he received many sales awards and recognitions. He worked in sales for Fed Ex for 16 years. He retired in May 2016.
Algie attended Desert Springs Church and Spirit of Life Christian Center. Throughout his years he served as adult and children’s Sunday school teacher, Sunday school superintendent, board member, started a bus ministry and overseen the building of a new church.

When He took his last breath, he was instantly in the arms of Jesus. “Well done good and faithful servant” was the first greeting he heard as he bowed humbly before his Almighty Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Daddy, my life was forever changed on April 18th, and it will never be the same without you in it. I love you more than anything, and I am sure going to miss you. I will miss out talks on Sunday afternoon, your hugs, you laugh and your corny jokes. I know you are where you strived to be your whole life. You are without pain, standing tall and walking streets of gold. I know this isnt a final goodbye. See you some day soon. Love you! Xoxo

The sweetest of all my boy cousins, Algie was also the handsomest. We didn't get to see each other very often. I do remember us feeding the calves together when his dad worked on a dairy farm. We would go fishing together on the levees near Council Bluffs when we visited during summer vacations. I thought I was so lucky to have lots of cousins, and Algie was one of the best.

I am so sorry to hear about Al's passing. I met Al when I started at FedEx in 2004. He was a joy to work with and had a great sense of humor. Al was a man of unwavering faith and a huge heart. Pat and family are in my prayers.
