    Al was one of the good guys. I met him when we both worked at Central Dispatch. Working the same shift, our team spent a lot of time together in that tiny room. We were close and we even had what we all called “family hour”. I can’t believe he’s gone….way too soon.

    Your dad was best man in my wedding. I have alot of great memories of high school years, romas, your grandmother, neighborhood stuff. Photography was big for your dad in high school along with his ford pinto. AL could have been on jeopardy wirh the knowledge he had. My best to you all you r dad only wants you to remember him for the good times and to be happy. He’s only a memory away…..

    Sorry to hear of Al’s passing. I knew him for many years. We worked together in the late 70′s as Special Deputies and later, when I was a Police Officer, he was the “deep voice” of calm as he dispatched us to calls via Central Dispatch. Al was for sure “One of the Good Guys.”

    I am so sorry to hear of his death, a day before he is 63. Al graduated with me, facebook, and was a dispatcher when I was a police reserve officer. So sorry to hear, so young. Along with Sue Hartwig and Bob Weiler, also 1972 classmates.
    To His sons and daughter my prayers.

    So sorry to hear of his passing. Went to grade school with Allen. Knew him well then, but lost touch. Later my daughter and Sam became the best of friends since 5th grade.
    When she moved out of town, they lost touch. Sympathies to all of his family….
    Good bless…………
