I worked for and with Al at ORNL and at DOE/OSTI. We played softball on the same team. I always considered Al a good friend. Al was one of the best. Many fond memories.

Sorry to hear about Al's passing. Worked with Al at ORNL's Math Division in mid-late 60's then later at AEC, ERDA, and DOE in Oak Ridge. He was a very competent systems analyst whose counsel was highly regarded by everyone. Always enjoyed his sense of humor! Condolences to his family.

Dear Albert, Sharon, Shannon, Chuck, and your families,

Sue, Trina, and I want you to know how grateful we are to have had your dad/grandfather for our "Uncle Sonny." He was always wonderful to us and a fantastic brother to our mother, Dot. We were always impressed by how much he adored and honored Aunt Kathy, and he is finally reunited with her! We will see you Friday night and Saturday to share some with you memories of the sweetest uncle any girls could have ever wished for!

With love and sympathy, the Elliott nieces: Jan, Sue, Trina

Rest in Peace, Albert.
