Condolences

I was in a veterans group with Al for many years, I looked forward to seeing Al each week, he was a good dear friend and Brother, alway had something of his wisdom and many years of leadership to offer to the group.Al and I enjoyed talking about our walk with Jesus Christ and how He has seen us through our hard times, I know that Al is enjoying his newest award his eternal life and his robe of white. The last time I saw Al was at Mercy South Hospital he was waiting for an appointment so I sat with him and we talked about our Lord and our waiting to go home to be with Him and out of all our miseries down here as well as military issues. A young lady came over to us and told us how much it pleased her to hear us discussing our lives and how Christ had been in them. She was crying tears of joy while she talked. She had Al an I in tears with her. She said it sounded so good to hear to old veterans talking about their lives and how God had intervened in them.She asked if she could have a hug, we hugged her in a Christian hug and she thanked us and left. Al and I were really touched by such a blessing she gave us and we had given her. I called Al while he was at home before he moved to Georgetown,Ohio it was always uplifting to talk to him. My condolences goes out to his wife and children and his grand children. Al's at the most peaceful and beautiful place now. Soon he will have that new body and no more pain or sorrows for him. So take his passing as a good thing and don't let sorrow linger for he's happy now and waiting for you up there. RIP my brother until we meet again. Sgt Curtis Fields 101st AB Vietnam

I knew Al from a Veterans Group we both attended for many years. He was an inspiration to us all and I certainly had the greatest respect for him as a person and for his military service. He was a quiet hero, not one to brag about the actions he perilously took in combat to save those under his command. At our Veteran meetings, his leadership continued through participation in discussions to aid others with whatever troubles they may be experiencing. His health issues prevented him from attending the Veteran meetings for the past several years. He was greatly missed. His many life adventures spanned far beyond his military life as he continued serving others in new capacities. I was very fortunate to have known him.

Not only did he serve his country and fellow man but he also taught a small army of us to be better officers, supervisors, men, and women. Al was not only my sergeant when I started with BCSO but a mentor and friend as well. I'm certain St. Peter will enjoy enjoy sharing Al stories now. My thoughts and prayer go with all his family and friends.
