To Al's family, I extend my sincere condolences for your lost. I served with Al in the Ukiah Navy Reserve Unit. He was my Executive Officer until the unit closed in 1969. I moved to Arizona in 1972 and haven't seen him since. But I often read about his accomplishments in the Ukiah newspaper in the followning years. He was a great asset to the community.
Wishing him Fair Winds and Following Seas.
