Our deepest condolences to Helen and the family. I’ll miss him dearly. We love you all so much.

Please accept our condolences for the loss of Al Wiechers, he was a good friend and fellow employee at Allison Gas Turbine. We enjoyed many laughing stories during our work days.

God Bless!

Leslie - Sorry for the family's great loss of your Dad. Many prayers to you and yours.

I graduated from Speedway High School in 1951. We were so excited when Al and his family moved to Speedway and he became a member of the basketball team. In those days we all saved our best outfits for the Friday night basketball game and cheered lustily. We were a much smaller school then, 49 in my graduating class. So when we won the sectional with Al leading the way we were over the moon! My husband joins me in sending our deepest sympathy in the loss of a great husband, father and...

Bill, I am so sorry about your loss. Let the memories of your father's life provide you with the comfort you need during this challenging time. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

Bill, I’m so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I remember Al as a very happy man, the times I met him he lit up room with his smile!

So so sorry for your loss Bill and family.

To Hellen, Leslie, Bill
It’s with great sadness for Vicki and I to express our condolences to you. I’ve known Al for most of my 73 years. He was a wonderful, positive, supportive role model especially in my formative years. We’ll miss his smile and happiness.
Thinking of all of you during this difficult time.
