One of the highlights of his retirement was the weekly card games with his sister Gail and cousins
Bobbi Farish, Joy Brown and Wanda Mason. Most of the card games were laughter and fun
rather than serious card playing.

nephews and a cousin Bill Bequeath of Marsing, Idaho.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Mary and Charity for the wonderful care
they gave Al in his final days. At the family's request a celebration of life will be held later in
July for friends and relatives.
Cremation is under direction of Bowman Funeral of Garden City.
