Both families moved to Connecticut and married on August 27, 1955. In 1968, he made Glastonbury his home where he raised his family. He was a local contractor in Glastonbury for 40 years until his retirement. Once retired, every day he looked forward to getting breakfast with his favorite companion, Coco his chocolate lab where he would catch-up with friends. He treasured memories of his summer cottage on Mousam Lake in Maine where he spent time with his wife, children and grandchildren passing on his love of fishing, boating and swimming. He had a special bond with his granddaughters Sam and Ally; they spent every summer at the lake where he not only taught them how to fish but also many life lessons on patience, kindness and appreciation of the outdoors. Al was actively involved coaching little league baseball as well as his son Dave’s ice hockey league. Al was an avid Red Sox and Montreal Canadiens fan.
