The Arcade Winterfest committee sends our sympathy to Rosalie and all of Al's family. Al always took special care for the Arcade Winterfest each year when we held our weekend in February at the Arcade Elementary School where Al worked. He saw to it that the Arts & Craft Show as well as the King & Queen Opening ceremonies had everything they needed from the school. Al put his heart and sole into everything he did. You would always see him buzzing around the Sardinia Carnival grounds taking care of things there. Al was a wonderful man. He will be missed. Sorry for you loss. Arcade Winterfest committee is making a $250.00 donation to the Sardinia Fire Department. Mike Jones Treasurer

Heaven has gained another angel. We know he's smiling down on everyone, with that infectious smile , while he is being greeted with "Well done, my good and faithful servant." We are sure you all will have many smiles, as you share the memories of a truly wonderful man. He will be missed, but never forgotten .

I loved this man and his wife. He was my boss at arcade central school 1974, wonderful and fair supervisor. Devoted son in law to Rosalie mom Irene, I'm shocked and saddened. Al and my mom go way back, rest in peace, al. You'll be sorely missed
