    I never knew Al personally but in the very beginning of this new year, it is very saddening to learn the sudden demise of our NTS co-worker. May God give courage and bring solace to Al’s family. – SM

    He was one the only people I ever met who stopped by our house unannounced to meet us for the first time! He also said he’d stop on his way home to see if we were around and he actually did stop! I call myself the ‘random relative’ because I just show up. I guess that’s one thing we had in common. The other thing in common was loving family. He had a huge heart. Well you guys, I love you too and my heart hurts for all of you. I will continue to pray for you.

    My sincere sympathy for another life taken too soon. I knew Al from Badgerland Water Ski Team. We skied together for many year and those years were some of the funniest, happiest times of my life. Al was a huge part of the team and always able to help out other skiers, move equipment, repair broken parts and lend a hand to anyone who need help. He was a wonderful skier and friend. His good humor, hard work and overall enthusiasm really helped the team to compete at the highest level. Another life lost too soon. My sympathy to his family, friends and his Badgerland family. From all the photos on FB, it appears that Al never lost his zest for life and that he had a remarkable family and friends. He will be missed by many.
