I had the pleasure of working with St.Al. He was such a wonderful person to me. I worked with him over 15 years ago at the dealership. I am so sorry for the families loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless.

Al was an original in every sense of the word.
He loved people and never met a stranger. He was always doing “a little bit less than excellent”.
Fly high Al!

In 2007, Al drove from TN to Philly to help me deal with our dad's hospitalization. He got turned around on the Ben Franklin Bridge one evening coming back from the hospital to my house. When he finally arrived, he joked that he wasn't used to the Yankee traffic , so he stopped a police officer for directions. Turned out, they were both in the Navy. Al got a police escort through center city. He had the best stories!
