My thoughts are with Al's family and friends. He was a wonderful colleague when we worked together at UCCL. Many of us were fresh out of university and he taught us that calm professionalism and humour were the best way to enjoy work and life.

Diane- your Dad took my picture twice with my husband Garry. Two pictures that I feel captured our essence. He was kind to me and a gentle man. You are lucky to have had such a man for your father. We are sorry for your loss.

Carol Farren - February 5, 2021

My deepest sympathy to the family. Al was a great friend of the chamber of commerce when I managed it. He was always there with an extra pair of hands and his camera. He was a true gentleman and he and Pat were a wonderful addition in our community. Sincerely Carol Farren

We met Pat and Al when they first moved to Cobourg and came to our yard sale. We chatted for almost an hour. Such a lovely couple - very saddened to hear of Al's passing. His love for his family and especially Pat was evident in every conversation.

Our condolences to your family. Al & Pat were such good people and friends of my mother and father. My kids enjoyed going over to their place these last 8 years or so, and helping them decorate their Christmas tree. I will always remember wherever you saw Al, no matter where it was, he always wanted a hug! He will be missed!
