Met Al at Brunswick in 78/79.  Worked and hung out with him many times.   Many of my good RP memories include Al.  RIP my friend.  You will be missed.

I also worked with Al several times in the 70s and 80s. It would be hard to find a finer man. I remember more than a few good long conversations with him. This is very sad news. Another old friend gone. RIP, sir... you deserve it.

My heartfelt condolences to all of his family.

Al was one of the first Site Coordinators that took me under his wing and taught me allot about the industry back in the early 90's . Always had a kind word, was able to deliver criticism in a way that it was palatable, and always had a minute to talk.  My heart goes out to his family.  Thank you Al for all you did.  You will be missed.

Al will be missed, He was one of the first Renta Techs in the late 70's with Chuck Pierce/Numanco.
I had the pleasure of working many outages with Al from Millstone in 92 till his last outage at Fermi.
He led by example and earned the respect of many.
Glad he had some good years to enjoy his retirement,  RIP my friend.

Al was one of a kind. We worked together on his last job. I remember he climbed to the 4th floor of Fermi's drywell, the upper collar of the reactor, and drug a lead blanket 180 degrees to the other side. You weren't going to outwork Al even at the end of his career. I will miss our phone calls. RIP Al. You earned it. Jonathan Ernst

Al instructed me on the fine art of lead hanging at Fermi 2. He was a kind man, and a hard worker.

Worked with Al in 81, 82, and 83 at Oconee. Last job with him was at VC Summer in 89. He was a good person and excellent HP.

Dang it Al....  I worked with Al in 88 and 89 at VC Summer...  great man.  He was supposed to come visit me in idaho last year..  I was hoping to see him this year as he comes through to see his daughter in Wyoming.  Great tech, he will surely be missed.

Al was a fine fellow, and a hard worker. That's a tough combination to find.
 Yes, we'll all miss him that worked with him... he set a great example hanging the lead at Fermi...."Paint it Yellow!"
Bye Al....been an honor.
