Everyone was his friend and he was always there to lend a helping hand and provide his expertise. He was a great community supporter.

He was in his glee. A wonderful, caring, compassionate man who wore many “hats” to all those who called him dad, ole’ man, pop, pop pop, Al and friend. We love you!
