For many years Al divided his time between homes in Florida and Nassau. He was a devoted husband caring for his wife, ten years, as she struggled with Alzheimer’s. When asked, how he did the care taking day in and day out, he would reply, “I stay happy. Everyday, I wake up and she’s still with me I’m happy.”
Al was a member of the Operating Engineers Local 106 for 60 years. He enjoyed membership in the Nassau Sportsman’s Club and the Moose Lodge. He enjoyed telling stories, taking cruises, fishing and hunting.
