Big Al you meant the world to me and my family. There was never a time that you were not there for us. Tons of beautiful and fun times at the lake. You were larger than life and have made huge impressions on all of us. You will always be in our hearts and forever missed. We will all be there for Nina, Laura and Jax and of course the little ones. We miss you already but so glad you and Little AL are together again. Love you

Big Al, I will never forget all the great times at the lake with you and the family. Summers would not have been the same with out a “whattaya say kid” and a “quick” 4 hour boat ride at the end of the day. You will be forever missed, give little Al a hug for me. Love you

To the King of Little Ossipee Lake, My uncle Al. I will never forget all the great times and memories up in Maine. From long boat rides, to spending all day hanging in black cove. You made growing up a lake kid the best time of my life and forever will be missed. Love you Big Al

Big Al, I will miss you forever. My brothers and I are so lucky to have had you as our uncle. We will miss your loud "Chris! This is Incredible!" After having a bite of a gas station tuna sandwich or a banana popsicle. You always made us laugh. I am So grateful for the memories of growing up on the lake and proudly telling people that big Al is our uncle. The lake will never be the same without you, but I know that you are there with little Al watching over us. Please give him a hug for me. I love you forever big Al.

Growing up in Woburn, MA had its special moments and times for me. On of my dearest friends is Al. He and I would play baseball and catch endlessly during the summers. We would do all kinds of things together...but we loved baseball, a great friend. He taught me so much growing up. He was a compassionate and generous person. I think of him frequently, I will miss my friend, Al. May I offer my sincere condolences and wish the very best to all his family.
