My brothers and I grew up with Al's kids and I always looked up to him. He was a giant in my eyes back then and a hero. I was 9 yrs old when he passed away and it rocked me. I'm a retired NYC Detective and Al was a big part of the reason I became a cop. He was a great dad to his kids and the kindest guy to the neighborhood kids too. I'm honored to have known him as a kid and even more honored to call him a brother in law enforcement. You will never be forgotten and memories of you will always be cherished.
