Al spent his early years in Los Angles, until he moved to Dallas in the 1970s. He worked as a truck driver for Leeway Motor Freight for 17 years, until health reasons caused him to go into the clothing business, where he sold men’s apparel for the last 25 years of his life.
Al spent his leisure time involved in many bowling leagues, playing poker, and participating in various poker tournaments.
His family was a big part of Al’s life, and he greatly enjoyed spending time with them and attending his grandchildren’s many activities.
Al was a very social person, and enjoyed to laugh with family and friends. Al will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him and was a part of his life.
