My dad was interred on 14 March at Sunland Mortuary in Sun City AZ, next to my mom. He had an Air Force Honor Guard and was serenaded - as he requested - by a recording of the song “Danny Boy” (sung by the British boys’ choir of Guildford Cathedral - in respect of the strong bond of love he shared with his British- American grandsons, Michael and Ben). It was a beautiful day: bright sunshine in an azure blue sky, and a light breeze.

His illness took him quickly: 5 weeks from diagnosis to passing. As his priest Fr Miron (of St Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church, Barberton) said, “Albert was fully in God’s grace when he died”.

My fondest memory of Mr. Kauslick was walking down our Avenue in leafy London with our two children in a stroller. Passing 23 York Avenue, Al was standing outside hearing his midwest American accent stopped me immediately in my tracks. In a heartbeat we struck up a conversation.
My heart soared a tiny bit as he reminded me of my own Father who died suddenly when I was 12 years old, in looks and manners. We were equally thrilled to have found a common ground in the heart of SW London. He asked a barage of questions, seeing me with my two little Anglo Americans, like his own Grandsons. The next moment his booming American voice soared out directed towards the inside of his daughter Carrie’s house, ’ Hey Carrie....! There is an American young lady outside here you have to meet!’. Out of the house came my new friend Carrie!
It was the start of a longlife friendship. I am certain Al knew his daughter and I would become friends for life as we have so much in common. Most importantly, he knew his Carrie would not be alone in a foreign country here on, nor would I from the moment we were introduced by Al as whe knew we are kinderd spirits. ❤️🇺🇸❤️🇬🇧.
Thank you Al for introducing Carrie and I. You knew our meeting would be a golden friendship, with a twinkle in your eye.
God rest your soul🌱🌷

I've been blessed to have know Al for over 75 years. He was an exceptional person with a ready smile and a warm heart. I'll miss you, my dear friend and buddy.
Carrie--I wish you and your family peace and joy-filled memories. I will always remember the kindness and hospitality that you and Byron showed to me in England. Be well, and safe travels.

I know my mother loved her brother. When I was young - well actually until my mom died - Uncle Albert would send her a humongous box of the best chocolate (Sees). We all enjoyed it during every Christmas. I gain some comfort knowing that he is with my mom and their parents. I wish that I was in Ohio now to be with family. He was loved. He will be missed. He will always be remembered. Riette (Antal) Pranger

I remember my days in Phoenix before I went in the Air Force. Your son, Albert, and I were good friends, and remain so today. I remember coming to the house many times when you were there, and I always remember your presence around the house. Al has always spoken very highly of you as a dad and as a father, and I know that he has grown into quite the man because of you. I know you were a proud father of Al and Carrie, and you were a loving husband. Rest my friend.

you were father, teacher, example, and aspiration to me. I wouldn't be the man I am if it had not been for you. I will miss you very much.
