I met Al in 1985 while riding on the the GO Bus when he was working in downtown Toronto. Al could talk about anything and everything and with anyone. I enjoyed our daily chit chats and the numerous stories he shared about his childhood, family and work. The GO bus will never be the same. You’ll be remembered for the
fun-loving character you were. Keep them laughing in heaven Al.

One in million. Fantastic guy. I worked with Al a few times and he was one of those people who had fun no matter what. I will never forget how much he helped me. Tks Al. 😁🙏. Rip.
