Al and Arlene were part of the Park Ridge Fire Department as we were
growing up. He was like a brother to me and my own brother. He always had a smile and laughter filled his house. May these great memories and more help you all heal.

I have very fond memories of fishing with Al and his son Scott. It was always so nice and fun to go out to eat with the dads and their sons. My deepest condolences to all the Cobble’s

Al was a gentleman, a neighbor, and a friend to our young family for the six years that we lived next door to him in Park Ridge. He and his family members built the house where we make our home. I never encountered him without seeing a smile on his face. He delighted in the outdoors and kept a beautiful yard and garden, along with his lovely wife Arlene. We will miss him. May he Rest In Peace.
