He will be missed, Al was a guy that always had time for everybody. I don't no how many years he did it but he would always come out in the evening and feed the stray cats at the Elks and those cats would only come to him too. That's the kind of Man Al was ill for one miss him very much.

Always enjoyed visiting with Al. He was a very nice and friendly man. Al loved sports, so we had a lot in common - Myrtle Point Bobcats and the Oregon State Beavers. He now has the best seat in the "House" for all sporting events. God bless all of Al's family and friends Jim Walker
