 Al instantly knew the love and true meaning of being part of a large and close family. Al will always be remembered for his laid back and quiet demeanor. After graduating from Gaylord Community Schools, Al proudly become a member of the United Parcel Service (UPS) family, delivering packages to his friends and neighbors for over 34 years. One of Al’s proudest moments was the day that he became a father to his only son, Sean. From that day, Al eagerly passed on his love for 4x4s, boats and snowmobiles. Al loved boating, especially on Indian River and anything to do with summertime. He enjoyed going to car shows, getting together for family card night and all the family get togethers throughout the years. He took time to enjoy and feed the deer in his backyard. He was a humble and simple man and will be greatly missed.
