Albert was certainly the gentle giant.When I was little girl, he was so tall to me, so soft spoken with a great chuckle. He was certainly a gift to all of his family.

Al was a truly a gentleman in every sense of the word. He was also a competitor who would battle you to the end as anyone who ever competed against him on the hardwood, handball court, or ballfield would tell you. A true friend to everyone he met and a credit to St X and UD! May he rest in peace in his Heavenly home.

Al was a splendid fellow, always smiling and friendly. He had a great basketball career at UD, though he was always humble and self effacing when asked about it. He loved the Flyers until the end and his life was a credit to UD and St. Xavier. May this gentle giant rest in peace.
