Al was a man who chose to follow God, he chose life. When he saw a need in front of him - anyone’s need, no matter how large or small, he believed that if he had anything at all to help meet that need, it was his joy and responsibility to give of his time, money or physical resources that would help another. Al loved people, especially his entire family. He was thankful to be able to live the life he wanted and do a job he loved, working as an aircraft maintenance engineer and helicopter pilot. Al had so many adventures and wonderful stories; we will all miss his story-telling.
