To the Durr family: My prayers go out to your family and I know he will be missed. I worked with him at Callaway and it was always a joy for me to work with him. He was one of the quality folks I enjoyed working with. He was always so proud of his family and told me lots about his family when we were on a job together.
Again my prayers are with you as he has moved to his next assignment.

I am so sorry to hear of Al’s passing. As a coworker for many years at the Callaway Energy Center, I will remember Al for always being upbeat and kind to others. His smile was contagious! My favorite memory of Al is the way he and his wife would burn up the dance floor at the annual company dances!! Rest In Peace Al.
