Online Condolences

  1. TobyHollenberg and Michael Bonder says:

    Our most sincere condolences to the whole family. May you embrace many wonderful memories of him as a husband, dad, grandpa and great-grandpa.

  2. Lyndall and Tom Stanley says:

    Al livened our couples’ book club with his stories about growing up and enlisting in the Army at age 16 for World War II. His memories of naval warfare, especially in Italy, gave us a front row seat on events not covered in our history books.

    Who could forget his smile as he greeted everyone coming through the Oakridge gym. He really did exercise but conversation with friends seemed his primary motive.

    Love to Fran and the whole family.
