Alfred "Al" Correll, age 73, of Colorado Springs, Colorado passed away on Wednesday, November 17, 2021. Al was born October 20, 1948 in Colorado Springs, Colorado to the late Clarence and Rella Correll. He was raised in Truckton, a farm and ranch community East of Colorado Springs. He graduated from Miami Yoder High School in 1966 with a class of seven students, one of them being his future wife, Pat Book.

After high school, Alfred attended Southern Colorado State College in Pueblo and graduated in 1970. Upon graduation he was drafted during the Vietnam War and decided to join the United States Air Force. He was stationed at the Air Force Finance Center in Denver from 1970 to 1975. During this time he married Pat in 1971 and together they had two daughters; Tori and Tyler.

Al was an accountant for various businesses over the years and was the Chief Deputy Coroner of El Paso County for 10 years. Al loved to play games and sports. He was very completive in fast pitch softball, bowling and tennis, playing competitive softball into his 40s and tennis into his 70s. He also enjoyed horseshoes, corn hole, reading stacks of books, cribbage, various card games mainly Rook, Pinochle, and Poker. Al connected best with people while doing activities and he was always up for a game of any kind. He could get pretty serious at times and was known to say “play your turn and then talk” during cards, but he certainly passed the fun of games unto others.

Al excelled at anything he pursued professionally or personally but his true joys in life were knowing Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and spending time with his family. He and Pat recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with their whole family all together in the beautiful Colorado Mountains.

Al is survived by his wife of 50 years, Pat Correll; daughters, Tori Horling (Tony) and Tyler Heberer (Jeremy); sister, Linda Dickinson (Daryl); granddaughter, Andi Bell (Jason), grandsons Levi Heberer, Gabe Heberer, Landon Horling, Andrew Heberer and Noah Heberer. Al was preceded in passing by his father, Clarence Correll and mother Rella Correll.

"Always pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind that forgets the bad, and a soul that never loses faith in God" Unknown

A visitation for Al will be held Tuesday, November 23, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at Swan-Law Funeral Directors, 501 North Cascade Avenue, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80903, followed by a celebration of life service at 1:00 PM.

Ray and I met Al through my sister and brother-in-law, Kathy and Larry Akers. He brought Melaleuca to us, for which we will be forever grateful!
We remember Al’s nonstop energy and enthusiasm for whatever he was doing. But mostly we remember his love and devotion to his Savior and his family.
We are so sorry for your loss but trust that he’s at peace, safe in the arms of Jesus.

Alfred, Pat and I grew together in rural eastern Colorado. Alfred was a best friend and Pat and I are cousins. I have many fond memories of my times with Alfred. We played together, we had occasional sleep overs, we played sports together and we roomed together in college. We both served our country proudly. Alfred joined the Air Force and I joined the Navy. Alfred was a groomsman in Chris and my wedding.
Pat and family, I am very sorry for your loss. May Alfred’s memory be a blessing.

I first met Al when we were in 6th grade. Thought he was a pest and I was a head taller than him! Then he grew up and I realized he was dependable, honest and would never let me down. And he never did. Al the hole in my heart is filled with memories and love. Thank you for those. We will always have Paris!

It was such a shock to hear about Al's passing - I had just talked to him a few days before. His death is such a loss. I will really miss working with him - and especially talking to him - we had similar views on politics, the world and especially our relationship with Jesus Christ. He was truly a good - caring and passionate man.

We give our deepest condolences to his family - he will be truly missed!

My sincerest condolences to Pat and all of the family for the loss of their beloved Al. Al and I played tennis both singles but more often doubles in Racquet Club leagues for several years. We made a good team not as much for the quality of our play as for the fun and camaraderie we shared for several years. We have not had a lot of close contact in the past few years but remained friends always. May God bless each of the family and grant you peace and love in celebrating the well-lived life of our beloved Al…husband, father, grandfather and friend.

The smile of Mr. Correll always brighten room yet set that at peacefully feeling with his acceptance. He always made me feel at home and talked to me with the question of “ how is everything and are you good with your path”. Words can never replace the true feeling of losing one that touched a part of one’s life but Al always was a figure that played a part of my growing up and he will never be forgotten. My heart is broken yet at peace of his non suffering. Al touched my life and I will always be grateful.
