Al was an extraordinary guy, a true gentleman who rarely complained about life’s set backs. I never knew him to be other than kind, and courteous to me and my family in the over thirty years I known him. He also was an excellent conversationalist. He was part of that “Greatest Generation” of World War Two, a Naval aviator at a time when that service, catapulting off of a warship, truly was hazardous and not for the feint of heart. He was a good husband, father and grandfather on top of being a successful businessman. He will be missed.
