Deepest condolences to all of you on this great loss. I worked with Al on environmental issues for over two decades. He was the "go to" person. I shall always think of him as honest, knowledgeable, great sense of humor. He was an incredibly calming influence, no matter the situation. We often just sat and talked in the midst of a busy work day. Simply put, he was just a wonderfully fine person.

Jeanne, what a faithful, coragious, loving partners you two were. I didn't know Al, but heard many stories from Debbie and Larry. A life well lived and loved is what we witnessed. Courage, strength, and Christ love surround you.

Jeanne, our thoughts and prayers for you and Amber during these difficult days. Al was much too young to have life cut short. We pray your memories will give you pleasant thoughts of him as you got thru these weeks. Ray and Anne Dotson

Amber, one of the best things that happened in my decade-long Relay For Life fundraisers on the west side was my partnership with the Rocky River folks. Back then, i met up with Al headed to our offices and he said he is most proud of you leading the River Relay and in honor of Kevin. That is how I remembered him, thankful on what his kid had accomplished, and proud of his grandkids, too. Truly a wonderful and loving family man. Al will be missed by all !
