Al was born in Wilmington, NC to the late Albert Grover and Anne Gordon Poindexter. He was an accomplished, sought after projects manager in various fields. He will be remembered as a mild man, in time called himself a crotchety old fart. Most people who knew him would agree, in the same breath be described as a man who enjoyed helping others, a gifted handy man, loved animals, cheered for the Tar Heels, enjoyed any fishing , canoeing, beach time hand in hand with his wife Betsy, on Oak Island. For years he took a special interest in collecting classic cars. One of his favorite sayings was “You can call me anything, just don’t call me late for supper.”
