Although cousins, Uncle Al was more like a brother to my dad (John Augustyniak Sr). I will always have fond memories of our families tailgating at the old “Sombrero” in Tampa during Bucs-Chicago Bears matchups. He will be missed.

A memory I always had with Uncle Al was the time he taught me to swim in the ocean. He always had a smile and joke to tell. He will be missed. Prayers go out to you Aunt Patty

Patty, when I think of Al what I remember most is that wonderful smile he always had on his face.
You were meant for each other from the very first day you met at Alliance College.
My prayers are with you and your family;
