We will miss Al. We appreciated his service on the Panton Planning Commission. We loved seeing him in action at the grocery store which always resulted in long conversations about goings on about town. He was a Panton fixture! It's hard to believe he is gone. Our condolences to all the Tisberts! David & Diana Raphael

So very sorry to hear of Al's passing. He was an outstanding citizen and hard-working farmer of the greater Vergennes area but most of all he was a wonderful husband to
Dottie and a loving father to his eight children. He will be missed by many in the community who were privileged to know him over the years. Sincere condolences to his family.
