    Al was a real good friend Carl and I have known him for many years we horse showed with him. Al had a big heart and would do anything for you that was asked. He will be missed but he was so tired in this battle with cancer and ready to go and be reunited with his precious wife Betty. Praying God will comfort the family during this trying time.

    Dan & I are saddened by the loss of Al. We have known him as a neighbor & friend for 22 years. I will always remember him for his infectious laugh & willingness to help whenever we needed it, whether it be feeding horses & chickens when we were out of town or helping me learn about trimming my horses feet. He was a good & loyal friend who will be missed.
