As a younger man, he enjoyed playing football and baseball with his neighborhood friends.  He was an avid Red Sox and Patriots fan and enjoyed watching the TV Land channel, the History channel, and spending time with his dog Brody.

Dear Cheryl and Family, I cannot express to you how saddened and shocked I was to learn of Al's passing. I have known Al for most of my 15 years as a Lion, and have always known him to be a very caring and compassionate person. His love for his family and community was evident. I was so much looking forward to working with him this year in his position as Region 2 Chair, and will greatly miss his great smile, laughter and hugs. We have lost a wonderful man, and my heart, thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. Love you, AL, RIP.

I was honored to work with Al in the Army National Guard. We worked side by side for several years. He was the best. He always had a smile and a
very contagious laugh. I only hope I was as good a friend to him as he was to me. Rest now my friend, you've earned it.
