Al was my work mate at IBM.  He was a pleasure to work with--pleasant --dedicated and got the job done.  I have not seen AL for some time since retirement.   A good and faithful friend.  I will miss Al and I am certain Al is in a better place.   Peace for AL, and all family and friends


Robert & Judy Adams

Our deepest sympathies to Sandy and their family.  We have been neighbors for 30+ years.  May God hold Allan in his ever-loving arms and grant him eternal piece.  We will miss Allan

I'm terribly sorry to hear this sad news.  Al and I began working together at IBM Corporation in Boca Raton, Florida in the latter part of 1968.  In 1972, we both accepted a transfer to the IBM Manufacturing Plant in Rochester, Minnesota.  We spent a lot of time together both hunting, fishing and some canoeing in SE Minnesota.  I've always considered Al a good friend.  My condolences to Sandy.
