Sending my deepest sympathy in the passing of Albert. We had worked together some years ago and although our paths never crossed after my retirement I remember him as the kind of person one would be happy to know. He may no longer be with us here on earth but will be remembered by all that knew him. Blessing to the family.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of “Big Al”. He was such a pleasure to work with all those years at BAE . Al knew all about customer service in Plant Engineering. Will always remember what a gentleman he was. Thinking of you and your family ❤️😇🙏

My sincere sympathy to everyone. It is very sad to know that Al has passed away. We grew up across the street from the Charest family on Blossom Street and they were all such a really special family including Lionel Pickard who was always so friendly to us. My best memory of Al is that he was always nice to us younger kids, never picked on us or made fun of us. One day he asked me to play horseshoes against our neighbor Rene and my sister Diane. Although I didn't think I was good enough he helped me and Al and I won. It was a proud moment for me! May he rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Cathy Vaillancourt Fowles

Brenda, I was so very sorry to read about “big Al’s” passing. He was always so good, caring and pleasing when answering the need for his services for everyone at BAE going back to the early Sanders days. Always pleasant whenever our paths crossed.

Please accept my deepest sympathy.

Warm regards , Nancy Garceau
