Not sure what to say?

Al was an umpire at a Babe Ruth League tournament game at Oak Hill H.S. many years ago and I was in the press box. A snow fence enclosed the outfield. A line drive either went over the fence or through the slats. It was Al's call and he ruled a double. After the game he sought out the outfielder and asked: through or over? Once Al got his answer he came to the press box and told me to write for the next day's newspaper that so-and-so hit a home but Al Card got it wrong. "I want that...

Al was a classmate (U.M.'53).We lived in Oak Hall for two years. He and Woody Carville were like Damon & Pythias always together' He always was pleasant with a happy sense
of humor no matter what the situation. Sincerely, Zeke Mavodones

Our hearts are saddened to learn of the passing of Al/Coach Card. He was a role model for all of those whose life he touched. Much to the dismay of many coaches in the Bangor area, Coach Card developed my interest into sports officiating back in the 1960's that I have followed ever since! Al will be deeply missed by all in the MCI family who had the fortune to have had his touch.

Blessed to know Mr. and Mrs. Card in Augusta at South Parish Congregational Church and Prince of Peace. First met Mr. Card at Lawrence High School where he was a teacher and I was a student.

Mr. Card was a wonderful neighbor, teacher, and friend. He talked to kids the same way he would an adult and it was a pleasure spending time with him. He was always the same--just a wonderful, patient, all around good guy. I wish there were a lot more like him. RIP Mr. Card.

Linda & Ryan, Sorry to hear of your fathers passing. I didn't know him because of his coaching or refereeing but as a memorable great teacher @ MCI in the 60's. I would mention him often through the years & how he stood out as a person & teacher. Wish I knew that he was @ granite hills because I visited there many times in the last 9 yrs. & would of loved to talked with him. But, it sounds like your dad was a Christian & that means that I will see him again. What a...

Linda, Ryan and family. So sorry to hear this news. I tried to make it a point to stop by and see your Dad (and Mom) when I visited with my mom at Granite Hill. I always got the "Hey OB" from your Dad (I can still hear it) and "Hi Scotty" from your mom. I loved them and they are both missed.

Great man and always a great smile.

Well respected and well liked. Indeed a life well-lived. Rest in peace.
