Wishing peace for you and your family. Your father sounds like an amazing man, husband, daddy, brother, uncle, and grandfather. All were blessed who knew him! Love to you all!

I'll never forget being a 4? year old at home on Saturday afternoon, when several of Al's friends carried him into the house on Chadduck Ave. in Buffalo and dropped him on the living room sofa, then left. I couldn't believe that my big brother was out cold. Was he drunk; was he dead? To my great relief he awoke and I learned that he had been knocked cold playing street football and the pals simply wanted to get back to their game! Ever since that day I increased in love and respect for him. When he married Louise, I and brother Paul were the altar boys at Louise's church. When I couldn't find the communion paten at this other church, I thought I had ruined the whole ceremony, but Al & Louise continued to show me love!!! When Dad died shortly thereafter, Al became the family patriarch and he and Louise set a stunningly high standard of life, love, and family. Simply awesome. Love you Al!

Please accept my sincere condolences. I met Al at Pillars many years ago. He was a wonderful man. He always had a smile and friendly greeting, even at those early morning hours. He will be missed

Al was a big part of my spiritual development when I moved with my family to Greenville. He welcomed me into our small group at Pillars of Christ and challenged my thinking and encouraged a deeper understanding of my relationship with Christ. I will miss the twinkle in his eye when he was making a particularly thought provoking point! He was a great man, a brilliant man and a loving family man. I will be praying for eternal rest and for his family to find peace, knowing Al is home.
