Al was an accomplished Licensed Master Plumber. He was a generous provider for his family and believed with God anything was possible. He worked during the day and spent his evenings and weekends as a licensed clergyman, performing marriages, offering counseling and visiting the sick.
Al lived a wonderful life with his family. In his youth, he was an avid baseball player and was on track to play professionally before a knee injury derailed his dreams of joining the major leagues. He loved to watch the Washington Redskins play, he was a big fan. He also enjoyed watching NASCAR with Margaret. Al was able to visit the Holy Land and travel the world with the church, including a trip to Greece and a mission to Haiti where he used his skills as a plumber to provide aid. Al enjoyed nature and liked to hunt and fish. Spending time outdoors. Nothing was as special to him as his children and grandchildren. Al will be missed by many, but by none as much as his family.
