I met Al when I was 12 or 13yrs old. My best friend Dawn Ruffino babysat for his sister Bonnie. Dawn and I then joined the Firelites. It was always so much fun. We traveled in NJ for band competitions and were in parades. Just a blast and of course Al was the band leader. Al gave me my first kiss. I will always remember all the great times we had. Our group consisted of Al Cybulski, Ritchie Seeman, Roy Hoppock , Mike Barbetta, Pat Hargraves, Dennis Stromick ,Johnny Lapore and many others. I send my deepest sympathy to Ginny, his children , his siblings and all his nieces and nephews. Rest easy Al.

Did you notice that in certain pictures, his belt buckle is covered? If you saw it in other pictures, you would know why. It was only 4 letters, starting with "F." In posed photos, it was generally covered. In candid shots, it is not covered. In one picture, with the Haymond Ladies, he is holding a Frisbee in front of it. Now you know why!

Back when I was involved a motorcycle ministry and later a biker church Al was always a willing partner in participating, sewing on patches, fixing my leathers, asking for IT help and overall just being generous, genuinely himself and an all around good guy.
He attended many blessings of the bikes at Seaport Community Church and supported Full Throttle when it started. He blessed me and many others. It was my honor to have known him and been a small part of his life.
Yeah he was gruff but not in a bad way and he had a great heart and was willing to put himself out there again and again even if it might get him burned.
These last years he had health struggles and unfortunately after the biker church closed I lost touch in person. Al will always be fondly remembered by me my wife and daughter and a bunch of other folks from those two ministries.
Praying for the family for peace, comfort and good memories during this tough time.

Dear Ginny & Family,

My deepest sympathies.... AL was always the first one in line to help anyone. Al was special. The first time I met him was at a Charity motorcycle ride. He never disappointed anyone. He suffered so long...may you rest in peace my friend.

We met Al & his lovely wife Ginny at a car wash / tag sale to raise funds for veterans. Our friends Elena & Zeek had invited and introduced us. Al began quietly working out a deal with my husband to buy a leather vest with a condition that he (my husband, Kim) buy me a frog. Somehow it caught Al's ear (Thanks to Elena and maybe Zeek..ha ha), that one night at dinner me, Kim, Elena & Zeek.. I had a couple Ruby Red drinks and was worried about saving a frog in the cold weather that I had found in a porta potty. By, the way..I didn't recall telling this story at dinner. Long story short..the frog got a hoppy home thanks to Al....Elena & Zeek.

Al was a hell of guy who I met in paltalk .. when you first meet him he had this inviting personality made you feel as if you were home with the room he owned..In paltalk we meet every morning for coffee and good cheer!Al use say the first time we were friends by third time you come in room you were family. Even though I never had the pleasure of meeting Al in person or having a beer or coffee with him . He will always be considered My Brother!! May you "Rest in Peace" Brother AL you will be miss by Many..
