Walking and talking with Al was walking and talking with a giant of our time and time to come. He truly loved his family and life. His memory will always be with us.

My heartfelt condolences to the Anscombe family. Al loved the WNY community. His dedication and commitment to Amherst has made a lasting impact on the community. I'll miss seeing him at the Amherst Museum and other Amherst events, and I'll miss his knowledge about the history of Amherst.

Sincere sympathy for your loss. As a former employee of Recra, I had the opportunity to see and speak with Mr. Anscombe on many occasions at both the office and holiday gatherings. He would acknowledge everyone warmly with a smile. He was truly a gentleman.

Mr. Anscombe was a true gentleman, I was honored to have known him. My late parents, Bill and Reggie Keaton, worked with Mr. Anscombe for many years and he will be missed. I received the email from Buffalo Broadcasters, we are in Cape Coral, FL currently, or I would have been able to offer my condolences in person.

I will always treasure the memories of the hundreds of hours Joan and I enjoyed with Beth and Al. They made the Amherst Museum and the Park Club along with their friendship, something special.

One of our great broadcasting pioneers has left us but not without leaving his mark on all he touched over the years. I enjoyed my association with Mr. A. from the old XRA and WINE era through my involvement on the Buffalo Broadcasters Board of Directors. A true legend never to be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
