Al's friend said "When I think of Al, I will always smile." Nothing made him happier then spending time with his family and friends, gin at the Elks, dinner at his children’s houses, traveling with his wife or watching TV with his favorite dog, Ruby.

He was a graduate of Fairport Harbor, Kent State University and Cleveland Marshall College of Law. Al became a lawyer in 1971 and always had a passion for practicing law. He worked as an attorney in private practice from 1971 until his retirement in 2006.
