He was a corrections officer at Great Meadow Correctional facility for 29 years.
Al was a communicant of Our Lady of Hope Church in Whitehall where he was a member of the men’s choir for more than 20 years. Al thoroughly enjoyed attending Mass and singing songs of praise and worship.
Besides church music, Al had a love for all music and could be counted upon to share his vast knowledge of music facts. Another one of Al’s talents was gathering and storing an abundance of little-known tidbits of information. His family and friends might have called them “useless,” but Al could always be relied on to answer any trivia question that might have come up.
He was a member of the Skenesborough Volunteer Fire Company and held the office of secretary until he retired from active duty. Al enjoyed the camaraderie to this day stopping by the station to talk to the firefighters and assist with fundraising. He was a faithful American Red Cross Blood donor, donating more than 5 gallons of blood over his lifetime.
