He was a graduate of Deptford High School in New Jersey. After graduating, he served in the U.S. Navy. Al was employed by Local 17 Detroit, Michigan where he was a Journeyman Lineman for over 12 years and he enjoyed his job greatly. He enjoyed being with his wife, Kim, doing home improvement renovations, and spending time with Kim and Alec on the slopes in Michigan snowboarding. He also enjoyed listening and playing drums and guitar with his son, Alec. One of Al's favorite past times was riding his Indian Motorcycles with his friends. Al was always a giver of his time no matter how busy he was, he would always make time to help others. He was easy going and optimistic and liked to see others smile and laugh. Al would always end his conversations with his wife, "I love you!" and the pride he felt for his son was immeasurable. Ride on, "Indian Al"!!!
