Al was a very kind person. He always waved and spoke to me at the tailgate parties that I attended with him and his family before each Virginia Tech football game this year. It was a shock to hear that he passed away so suddenly. He will be hugely missed. Thoughts and prayers to his family. May his memory be eternal.
