Al was born in Vancouver and began his career in the airlines in Prince Rupert. He was employed by CP Air for 43 years, where he and his family lived in Richmond. He lived his last 10 years in Comox by his beloved ocean. Al had a great sense of humour and wit. He enjoyed people, almost as much as he enjoyed working on cars and fishing.
