Upon graduation, he served in the United States Army Dental Corps in Europe before returning to settle in Wilmington, NC. After practicing General Dentistry for eight years, he completed an Endodontics residency at the University of Detroit in Michigan. Al practiced dentistry in Wilmington, NC from 1970 to 2014. During his career, Al served as an Associate Professor in the Department of Endodontics at the UNC School of Dentistry, Chapel Hill, a Fellow of the American College of Dentists, Chairman of the Carolinas section of the American College of Dentists, a Fellow of the International College of Dentists, a Dental examiner for the Council of Interstate Testing Agencies, President of the NC Association of Endodontists and President of the Tar Heel Endodontic Association.

An avid pilot, Al served on the Wilmington International Airport Authority and the US Coast Guard Auxiliary Air Wing. Of all of Al's accomplishments, his family, friends, profession and aviation were most important to him. He was a true and loyal friend to many and enjoyed relationships with people from all walks of life. "Pappy" was adored by his grandchildren who loved his boat rides and special way of feeding the fish. His indomitable strength and spirit prevailed throughout his life. He just filled the room whenever he walked in. The family will receive friends from 5:00pm to 7:00pm Monday, August 4, 2014 at the Cape Fear Country Club. A funeral service will be held at 11:00am Tuesday August 5, 2014 at Andrews Mortuary Market Street Chapel. Private interment will be in Oakdale Cemetery.
