So sorry for your loss. I worked with Al for many years. Will remember him and all our many years together.

Al and I worked together at Western Electric/AT&T for nearly 34 years. He was always a good natured person, and when he disagreed with me, he would say so in a sincere but good natured way. Once the disagreement was settled, he would do his best to proceed with the task at hand. He was a team player, and definitely one of a kind! I think everyone who knew Al would say that his good natured way of giving you a hard time about something, (anything), would help to relieve the stress of a difficult day. He will be missed!

Roy worked with Al at ATT. But most memorable were times with Al & Loretta camping & traveling together as friends. Al was crazy & fun. So sorry Loretta.

I am so very sorry for your loss, prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time!!
