Al was always so kind to me, I have such fond memories of visiting with him and Arlene at their house and hearing their many stories about their life. They were wonderful people and I was very lucky to have known them. Al and Arlene were such a blessing to my Nana, being two of her closest friends. Sending my heartfelt condolences to the whole family during this difficult time.

So sorry to see this. Al was a great guy. We were active members of the Fairhaven Rotary Club many years ago. He and Arlene were very special people
Rest In Peace.

Both Al and Arlene were such nice people, now they’re together again. Al and my father, Paul Wilkinson, were first cousins, Albert Sr. and my grandmother Vivian being brother and sister. I have fond memories of the farm, the silver stream liners and the bonfires, back before Uncle Albert and Aunt Mary went to Florida. I remember being out with my father and he would stop by now and then to see “Sonny” (as we all still called him) at Park Motors. My condolences on the loss of your father and grandfather.
