I first met Al i 1973 and through the years he was always very kind. i first learned about 'hot sauce" from Al and so much more about the professional side of police work.

Take comfort in knowing that he is looking out for all of his loved ones in his final peace. He will be missed.

Dad and Al were best friends. As kids, we remember Al showing up early in his white t-shirt and flannel and Dad running late for their annual deer hunting trip. The two bickered like brothers and Al always gave Dad a hard time about his driving. As an adult, Al helped us move across many homes and many states. I think he was always up for a road trip! Al will be missed. We know he is greatly loved.

Our memories of you will be closely held to our hearts. You are a brother I admired and loved. You lived a life of service and made an impact on so many because of it. You loved your family with compassion and tenderness. You were a great man and a hero in the eyes of your little sister. I will miss you terribly.

I first met Al when I joined the technician's unit because he was my field training officer. We became good friends over the years. He was like the brother I never had. A few of the things that we did together were deer hunting, bowling, and weekly breakfast. He even went with me to Fort Myers, Austin, and St Louis just to help my daughters move. He had a good heart and great hot sauce.

Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Al. My Deepest Condolences to the Luccitti Family. As a young Officer I had the pleasure of working Maple 3rd in the early 90's and it was always great to come into work and be greeted by Al.

"Morning man Luccitti" was Al's signature sign on to the radio at the start of his shift. I learned a lot from Al during my Field Training as a rookie in Maple Section. Al was a very kind-hearted man. I am very sorry to hear of his passing. Rest easy Al, rest easy.

Prayers and good thoughts to the Luccitti family on Al's passing. Al was always helpful and supportive to all those he worked with. I also recall his ready smile, and the many times he offered a kind word. Al will be missed
