Dear Shirley and family, very sorry to hear of Al's passing, but I feel blessed to have known him and was encouraged by his faith, intelligence and kindness. God Bless.

Al and I attended the Univ. in Fairbanks in 1950 and after graduating in 1952 we went to UCLA and roomed together until we got our Master degrees in 1954. In 1956 we returned to the Geophysical Institute where we were deeply involved in atmospheric science for the next 30 years. In the summer of 2009 we visited Fairbanks and saw Al and Shirley and enjoyed talking and seeing each other.
He will be missed by his family and his many friends.

Al is a gentleman and a good mentor to me when I started working at GI in 1972. We car pooled to work for a few year, although only a ~5 miles distance one way, obviously not for saving gas.

I miss him when he retired from GI, only saw him once or twice since his retirement!

Al was many things for me. My principal thesis advisor. My writing and professional mentor. I learned how to be professionally compassionate and fair by Al's examples in how he dealt with problems. Things and conversations that occurred in the Romick, Deehr, Belon office in the old GI, now the Chapman building on campus today, were enjoyable, professional, and sometimes a bit crazy and off the wall. Al became a consummate professional, liked by everyone, and admired by many. Best wishes to his family who knew him and will remember him best.
