I worked with Al in the early 1980's at the Parks Department. The office purchased a new car that I had to drive but it was a standard shift and I didn't know how to drive one. Al got the assignment to teach me (a wet behind the ears 23 year old). What a great teacher and super gentleman. He was so patient! God bless him. - Mary (Goode) Martin
