He played clarinet and sang with the Bill Franz band on Gatsby’s Riverboat, Little River Queen, Cocoa Mardi Gras, Oktoberfest, and all around Brevard. He also played clarinet and sang at Heidi’s Jazz Club for the past 20 years every Wednesday and Friday where he made people very happy during happy hour. He volunteered with the Central Brevard Humane Society Jazz Band for many years to raise money for the animals. He also enjoyed being a Master Gardener. He was a wonderful husband, Dad and Grandpa and a true friend to so many. He will be missed by his wife of 50 years, Mardi, his 2 daughters and families, Mindi, Jodi, Barry & Adam.

What Dave Lewis left out in his comments were,,that for over 3 years i tried to get Dave to join Al and I for our gig at Heidi's jazz club. Dave totally refused until Al finally asked him last March,,,,and Dave was on stage the next day. I first worked with Al at the Melbourne Hilton in 1997,,,and i have enjoyed these last 4 years of working with him at Heidi's. i hope that Mardi realizes how much we all appreciated her sharing Al with the rest of us. When I needed him for a gig, he would always say,,"I wanna disuss it with Mardi, first",,,as that was always his priority,,,and rightfully so. I was so honored when Al asked me to play a party at the M.I. Library that was given in Mardi's honor. To say that he will be missed is an enormous understatement. i hope to see many of yoiu at The Humane society on Oct. 4th, for the dedication of a brick in Al's honor.Steve Kirsner

A few months ago, Al asked me if I would take his place at Heidi's while he was In Miami undergoing treatments for his illness. I agreed to help him out. I may sit on the stage where Al would normally sit, but I could never take his place. Al was one of a kind with his infectious smile and sense of humor, not to mention his warm vocals and great reed playing. I worked with him for at least 20 years playing dixieland and dance music and I will always remember the good times we had doing so. Thanks for the memories. My heartfelt thoughts to Mardi and Al's family.

We have many fond memories of Al and all of you when we were neighbors many years ago. Al will forever be remembered in our hearts.

I have so many childhood memories of Al since his daughter Mindi was my best friend growing up . I remember him taking us to the field at MI High School to launch rockets he had made, building obstacle equipment in his backyard for Mindi, and telling us to be quiet after lights out at sleep overs when we couldn't stop giggling as little girls do. I cherish those memories. I hope that Mardi, Mindi and Jodi find comfort and peace at this time, and know that my thoughts are with you always.

Al you were a pleasure to work for and with. Thank you so much for the good times and your kind, kind, wonderful heart. I was just thinking about you last week. You and your family are beautiful and I felt how much you loved them daily (as your secretary). Rest peacefully my friend.
With much love, Mary Ann Turner (Mraz)
