ALLETZHAUSER--Albert. Albert Alletzhauser, on May 10th, we lost a true treasure of a human being in our dearly loved husband, father and friend, Al Alletzhauser. Al died in Phuket, Thailand of a heart attack at the age of 51. For many of us, 51 is only half a life. But Al packed three incredible...

Not sure what to say?

We will never forget Al and his giving personality that came so naturally. He was also philanthropic. Credit Al with 100k squatters in South Africa being given a boost through 100k 1994 ballot papers from South Africa being donated to them from These ballots have appreciated from $2.50 to $550.00 over the years thanks to Al helping me bid on them and winning in 1994. I will forever be grateful and remember Al's kind and generous gesture to the end.

Dear Anne and family,

This note falls in the category of better late than never. Michael told me of Al's death and honestly I couldn't comprehend it at the time. Al was so full of life and so full of adventure and so much love for you and the children! Our shared time in South Africa (around 1990 - 1994) was unforgettable and our times together just priceless. I hope we reconnect somehow and to this day I quote Al to the children when I tell them what he said while we were all...

My Dearest Al, It is with much sadness that I write this, as I always thought that we would meet up again somewhere, sometime. It will now have to be in heaven. I will always treasure those precious moments we spent together in Nepal and Darjeeling and will never forget the sadness I felt when we spent our last moments together singing “I'm leaving on a jet plane” on the lawns of the Calcutta Airport. But we were both so young and so adventuress and heading in completely different paths to...

To my darling Al - on your 53 birthday. You are with us always. You remind us that each day we need to be embracing life and all those who touch us. How can we possibly learn to be the incredibly generous and passionate soul that you were. You taught us how amazing life could be if lived to the fullest.

We miss you so much

I'm deeply sad about this news. I met Al in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and became his Spanish tutor. His energy, his vision and kindness were truly inspiring. Al loved life and made you love it too... no matter who early in the morning we started classes and meetings! He was a great and positive influence to anyone lucky to have come across his way. My thoughts and condolences to his family.

My sorrow has only deepened as the shocking news of your sudden death digs and scrapes its way into a mind and heart that wants no part of its tragic pursuit. It just cannot be that I (like your precious family and countless other souls that you touched) must accept that you are gone, and that I must give in, give up, and let you go? Not yet, I say, for there are still hot tears that keep words and whispers at bay, and more agony to be screamed from chambers deep...

What a wonderful, caring and helpful person who opened the door for me to Nelson Mandela and the 1.5m ballot papers I was able to bid on and win through his assistance (along with Eric)

I was so sorry and shocked to hear this tragic news. I am thinking of Anne and the children, and I hope they are coping.

Al, I was just getting ready to send you an email today. I wish i could have spoken to you one last time. You would have loved the Polo project i have in mind. Rest In peace Al. My sincere condolence goes to your wife and kids.
God bless
