My sympathies on your loss. Al’s passing is a loss for all who knew him. He was kind. He was caring. I first knew Al as our banker at American Bank on State Hill Road. It was always fun to talk with him. He was so knowledgeable. When I hear people say nasty things about bankers, I think, “What a shame they didn’t know Al.” He set the standard - not only for what a good banker should be - but for what a good person should be. We were lucky to have him in our lives.

So sad to read of Al's passing. He was a great co-worker at Meridian Bank, neighbor in Shillington and supporter of me over the years. Condolences to the family and friends. I will always remember him as a true gentleman and friend. RIP Al.
