I can't believe you are gone Al. I love you forever.

I first met Al on Toy Man Television. He was riding a small train, through a small venue, shooting a cap gun at targets. He was laughing.. I later learned that this venue was at a location called, "The Train Shoppe" on State Street in Salt Lake City.

The host of Toy Man Television (Dale Angell) and I shared a friendship, so the next step was meeting in person at his studio in Salt Lake City. The very next person I met, was his friend Al, who was also visiting the studio. I remember saying, " I know you! I saw you on Toy Man, riding a train and shooting a cap gun!" This caused him to really laugh.

It wasn't long before Dale and I were dating, and part of those dates was often hanging out with his friends, The O Scale Guys. We would go to Steve's house to "play with trains" in Steve's upstairs layout. I remember being completely blown away by this model railroad.

Al lived with Steve. I soon discovered that Al was a brilliant model railroader as well. I also learned that he could play the clarinet and saxophone.. two of my favorite instruments. We enjoyed a few concerts in which he played with a musical group.

Al was one of these people that was always on the "go". If anyone had the ability to be in two places at once, it was Al. His energy and laugh were contagious. He loved to tease. He was always teasing Dale and I. We wasn't teasing Al when we asked him to be one of the witnesses at our wedding ceremony.

Al was always full of energy, not sitting still for long. A quick cat-nap in a chair, and he was back to being busy once more. When Al learned of my love of cabooses, he built me one in 20th scale, to add to Dale's railroad. Then he was constantly getting after me for not getting it painted!

The O Scale Guys weekend supper and lunch dates were fun. Al was the one to suggest a place to dine, and he was usually the first to arrive, first in paying for his order, and quickly outside for a smoke, and back in again. He was usually in a hurry to get home to watch his favorite show on TV, or work on a model.

Al was always in a hurry. Always busy... always active, and his brilliant mind went non-stop. For reasons unknown, Al left this world much the way he lived in it...

Al, we will sorely miss you. Your energy and excitement will forever stay in our hearts. Your talents will also be missed. As an educator, the life lessons you taught us, will always be a part of all who knew you. May you be at peace for the eternities.
