During his deployment in the U.S. Army, Al had the honor of working on the first generation of computers – the ENIAC. He was a proud employee of Allis Chalmers for many years, rising to managerial levels. Later opportunities presented themselves for consultant work in Business Practices and Efficiencies with Payco American, MGIC and Aurora. As a hobby, he nurtured his rose garden, took photographs and watched Wisconsin sports. Al was a pillar of the Peace United Methodist congregation, serving in many roles of leadership.
In lieu of flowers donations to Peace United Methodist Church appreciated.
