He married the love of his life Mary Theresa Orendac in 1952 before being deployed with the Army to serve in Korea. Their 69 years of marriage served as a shinning example, for countless others, of what love and true partnership should look like.
Al worked many jobs from a young age from the family farm, to electrician, to repairing welders to name a few. There was rarely a problem for which he couldnt find a solution, and even losing a finger didnt slow him down. He worked well past retirement age and started a lawn mowing business after retirement, he was never known as someone that could be content to sit still for very long.
Al had an unwavering sense of right and wrong with a work ethic without equal. He helped guide multiple generations of young men by coaching baseball and always being the first to step up and help those in need. He loved the outdoors and spent many weekends hunting or fishing with family and friends. He lived a full life and would often tell tales of adventures and mishaps he had along the way, from his early days on the farm in Missouri to continually pushing his C.O.s in the Army, to his home in Kansas City where he raised his children and watched as they raised their own children, even getting to see grandchildren become parents. He had a great sense of humor and was downright ornery even as his memory started to go later in life. He always had a unique way to see to the root of a problem whether that be with a person or machine and could correct either quickly. Although hed never admit it he loved animals and was often the reason for a new pup to join the family even after his hollow objections. He had a rough exterior but loved those close to him more intensely than sometimes we deserved.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Theresa, at the first of the year and his sister Minnie (Pete) Elkins.
He is survived by a sister Jennett (Joe) Shelton, two children, Deborah (William) Graber and Jim (Veronica) Scott, eight grandchildren Shawna (Matthew) Blackman, Patrick (Ashley) Forsythe, Timothy (Amber) Forsythe, Jaclyn (Luke) Pittman and Rob Scott, and ten great-grandchildren, Mica, Curtis, Lucas, Grace, Annabelle, DamEon, ChevElle, Brianna, Kelci, and Alexander all who he loved dearly and many nieces and nephews.
He will be missed by the many lives he touched and people he helped shape.
In lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations to the Alzheimers Foundation.
