His eldest granddaughter, Ashley, said it best: “Al was a loving husband, father, brother, grandfather, and friend. A hardworking man, the biggest jokester, the trivia and puzzle master, the smart finance guy, the man who raised my dad to be the best father to me he possibly could, and boy did he teach him well because I got so lucky. Man, could Paw Paw make you laugh. I think that is what I will miss the most, that humor that only the select few of us understood.”
