What Dave Lewis left out in his comments were,,that for over 3 years i tried to get Dave to join Al and I for our gig at Heidi's jazz club. Dave totally refused until Al finally asked him last March,,,,and Dave was on stage the next day. I first worked with Al at the Melbourne Hilton in 1997,,,and i have enjoyed these last 4 years of working with him at Heidi's. i hope that Mardi realizes how much we all appreciated her sharing Al with the rest of us. When I needed him for a gig, he would always say,,"I wanna disuss it with Mardi, first",,,as that was always his priority,,,and rightfully so. I was so honored when Al asked me to play a party at the M.I. Library that was given in Mardi's honor. To say that he will be missed is an enormous understatement. i hope to see many of yoiu at The Humane society on Oct. 4th, for the dedication of a brick in Al's honor.Steve Kirsner

A few months ago, Al asked me if I would take his place at Heidi's while he was In Miami undergoing treatments for his illness. I agreed to help him out. I may sit on the stage where Al would normally sit, but I could never take his place. Al was one of a kind with his infectious smile and sense of humor, not to mention his warm vocals and great reed playing. I worked with him for at least 20 years playing dixieland and dance music and I will always remember the good times we had doing so. Thanks for the memories. My heartfelt thoughts to Mardi and Al's family.

I have so many childhood memories of Al since his daughter Mindi was my best friend growing up . I remember him taking us to the field at MI High School to launch rockets he had made, building obstacle equipment in his backyard for Mindi, and telling us to be quiet after lights out at sleep overs when we couldn't stop giggling as little girls do. I cherish those memories. I hope that Mardi, Mindi and Jodi find comfort and peace at this time, and know that my thoughts are with you always.

Al you were a pleasure to work for and with. Thank you so much for the good times and your kind, kind, wonderful heart. I was just thinking about you last week. You and your family are beautiful and I felt how much you loved them daily (as your secretary). Rest peacefully my friend.
With much love, Mary Ann Turner (Mraz)

To put it simply, Al was really fun! He was my favorite boss in all of my time at NASA KSC.

Mardi, will miss Al so much, especially his sense of humor. Also will never forget how very kind he was to my dad when we brought Dad to Heidi's for an evening of jazz. Dad and we enjoyed it so much and Al made the evening wonderful. Even Andy told me that he thought it was great that Al made Grandpa feel so special. To you Mardi, Mindi, Jodi, Adam and Barry our prayers and sympathies are with you. God bless you.

Mardi,
Al was a loyal friend and a joy to be with. Car pooling with Al made working at the Space Center almost bearable. He never hid anything, always wearing his beliefs on his sleeve, including his dedication and love for you and and the children. I consider myself blessed to have been his friend.

Al,

Thanks for the good memories at Heidi's. I appreciate the songs you learned for me and my mom loved when you would waltz with her.
You are missed very much. My condolences to Mardi and your family. Please plant a garden up there for all of us.

Al played in the band on the Indian River Queen for my husband's 80th birthday and helped make it a memorable event for all of us. C.M. thought the world of him and we enjoyed hearing him play on other river boats. My love and sympathy to his family.

Mardi and family,
So sorry to hear about Al's passing from your brother Walter. I will always remember our great Mother's Days spent at Joanie and Walter's house in Delray Beach. Al coming in and setting up all his music equipment and entertaining everyone with his wonderful talents. You traveled long and far to spend that day with your family. May G-D give you strength to endure this most difficult time. Our heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Linda and Marty Riger

Al was a wonderful friend, neighbor and musician. We will miss seeing him walking his dogs in the neighborhood. We will miss hearing him play his clarinet at Heidi's. Now he is with my Uncle Frannie who he accompanied at Heidi's singing "Embraceable You" to a room full of happy customers. We will miss your friendly personality Al. Rest in Peace.

During visits to Heidi's I meet Al while he was performing with the Steve Kirsner's band. He was a great singer and clarinet player. I also got to know Mardi at dance lessons in Rockledge. What a wonderful couple and so devoted to each other. He is certainly missed by a lot of people at Heidi's and I will always remember his good sense of humor. He is truly missed. It was my pleasant to get to know both of them in the last couple of years.
August 23, 2013
Al cared for many of God's creatures with boundless energy and wonderful humor. I feel privileged to have known him - my deepest sympathy to his family.
August 23, 2013
Al, you brought music to my friends ears and every time I think of you I will hear your music again and treasure it always. God Bless you and keep you among all the animals you cared so deeply about.

We had the privilege of working with Al for many years at KSC. We also had the pleasure of listening to him play aboard the river boats. He was a delightful caring man that will be missed by many.

Al was a wonderful, caring, funny and generous man. We will miss him very much. Brevard County has lost a most valuable citizen. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Al, I will miss your friendship, and giving manner for all time. The giving nature of your soul will survive your death. It was an honor to be in your presence while you were here amongst us. Your love of innocent animals and performing years of service, is legend .Our hearts are all very heavy at this moment, with time we will persevere to honor your commitment.

We were saddened by the morning news. Al left a rich legacy at KSC for all of us who followed in his footsteps and had the privilege of working with him. Sharing his love of music was an added bonus to those of us who had the opportunity to hear him play. Our prayers and sympathies to the family. Vicki and Wayne Owens

Alan was our wonderful, giving, human, generous, and brimming over with hospitality cousin. His father and Rae Morris Landis' father were brothers. We are comforted by the fact that he was able to pass peacefully with his family around him. We only wish that we could have been there as well. Mardi and family: we love you and we will always remember Alan for the gentle and loving person that he was.

I was Mardi's roommate when she met Al at U of Fl...They were a beautiful couple who enjoyed doing so many wonderful activities together. Al was an engineer, played beautifully in a band and had the most melodic singing voice ever! My husband and I had the pleasure of watching Mardi and Al dance together..What talent!!!. He will be sorely missed and will never be replaced..Peace, my friend!!
