Al was an avid race fan and especially enjoyed watching Dale Earnhardt Sr. and his nephew Tim Fedewa when they raced. He loved fishing, collecting rocks and shells and took great pride in building bird houses and growing bonsai plants. Al’s true love was spending time with his family and friends. Al will be greatly missed by all.
