I have worked with Al for the past 5 years. When I started working on second shift with Al and everyone else I was completely intimidated. I was fresh out of college and this was my first job in chemical manufacturing. I knew close to nothing. To Al it didn't matter what you knew or who you knew. What mattered was who you were as a person and how hard you worked. He was always there to listen and support and encourage me and to always throw in the that's not right comment after a venting session. I learned many things from him and I will cherish the time I had with him and be thankful that I had the privilege to know him. His family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of AL’s passing. He was a good friend over the years. I am proud to have known him. He tried to teach me how to play guitar. I was hopeless. Listened to Blackbird today, my way of remembering him. See you again one day my friend.

I worked with Al one summer in the late 70's/early 80s at Imex/Tallyrand. Al was my supervisor. At the afterwork get-togethers outside the company gate in the Industrial park, Al and his brother would play guitar and sing for us all. They were fantastic. I only knew Al for that summer,but he left an indelible memory upon me. He was a born leader. I will never forget Al or that summer. God Bless.

I remember Al as a person who always enjoyed spending time with family and close friends. Everyone would love listening to him play guitar and sing, especially his favorite song "Desperado".

I am deeply saddened at the loss of Al and wish his family and friends peace and comfort as they grieve their loss. Al was a great person, a terrific coworker and I enjoyed talking with and working with him. His energy an passion were an inspiration and he will be greatly missed.
