I will always remember visiting his home with Debra and the family. He had a warm smile and definitely was a jokester. He loved his family. I will always remember the stories he would share about how much trouble he would get into with my dad and the things they would do to their sister Aunt Marita. Uncle Al was a true fighter for sure with a big heart! I don’t think I will ever know anyone else who would love their dog More than he loved his dog Raelynn! She was definitely the sunshine in his life. I am sending my love, prayers and condolences to the family. He is finally at peace and pain free. R.I.P. UNCLE AL (aka Uncle Mike)

I first met Al when he came to work in the Pharmacy at St. Lawrence from a program at Eastern run by Ernie Merry (sp?). You never lacked for conversation when Al was around. Our paths continued to intersect for another 30+ years. Al was a good soul, and a good employee. May he rest in peace. John Lower

I knew Al from working in the St Lawrence pharmacy. Al was always in good spirits no matter the day or circumstances. His sense of humor really kept us going. RIP Al.

I knew Al as an employee, in Engineering, at Sparrow Hospital. He was kind, laid back and reliable. Many nights we called him to come up to Labor and Delivery, for one reason or another, and he was always willing to help with whatever we needed. Al your Sparrow “family” will remember and miss you. My sympathy to his family. Beautiful photo of him.
