Our dearest brother-in-law, uncle, great-uncle, great-great-uncle, cousin and friend to many.

Al’s personality has been described as “larger than life” and what Iife he lived! Upon his graduation from McKinley High School, Al proudly served in the Marine Corps. The majority of his work life was spent as an oiler at Anheuser Busch and as business manager for Teamsters Local 769. Al retired after 36 years of service and in his retirement fulfilled his dream of owning a neighborhood bar. Al was an avid fisherman, hunter, bowler, and poker player.  Al was a member of the Oakville Elks Lodge 2726 and Rollo-Calcaterra American Legion Post 15. He will be greatly missed by his wife Terry, family and friends who shared in his life.
