I miss you, Uncle Al. You spent loads of time at our house when I was younger. Since you were only a few years older than me, I was always the first in my age group to be listening to the latest cool tunes. Thanks to Mom and Dad, you, and Uncle Donnie, I developed a great appreciation for music. Although as I got into my teens, you didn't share my love of metal, punk, and hardcore. :) You also had a great love for animals and a strong sense of justice, which made me feel very connected to you. After moving away from Mount Forest at 19, I didn't see you very often, but when I did, you were always easygoing, polite, and interested in what I was up to...even wanting to learn more about veganism. Rest easy.— Sue Spahr, July 20, 2021
Al, Im still in shock...I just seen you two weeks ago, Im so glad I dropped by, as usual you were helping someone load there bike. You came out, hadnt seen you for a few years, it was so good to see you, ill cherish that hug forever. You will be missed by so many here in Mount Forest, your name should be right up there beside it, you are and always will be a part of this town like no other, a true friend a jam artist always had your door open to whomever needed help. You will be greatly missed..In Gods arms till we meet again...
