Prior to moving to Plattsburgh, Al was employed by General Motors Overseas Operations in New York City, serving in several positions, and was Staff Assistant to management for Logistics and dealing with U.S. Customs. During the Korean Conflict, he received training in Newport, R.I., to be an ensign in the U.S. Naval Reserve. Upon completion, he was assigned to Washington, D.C., as a Communications Officer with the Chief of Naval Operations. He was active in St. Peter's Church serving as Lector, Eucharistic Minister, Baptismal preparation classes, soup kitchen and choir. He was a member of D.A.V. Chapter 179 in Plattsburgh.
He was predeceased by his beloved, and deeply missed, wife of 32 years, Marge, his parents, Albert and Mary, brother William, and his twin sisters Viola and Catherine.
