To Al's immediate and extended family, my deepest condolences. Al became a colleague when he moved to Toronto in 2010 and presided at College Park Courthouse. Al fit in with his very jovial and easy going nature, not to mention his great sense of humour. As anyone who knew Al can attest, he had a keen interest in current events and loved discussing politics. As a result, we had many spirited discussions in our lunchroom. Al will always be remembered fondly by his courthouse family as a true gentleman. It was not surprising in the least to see the big turnout from the courthouse staff, Crown attorneys etc. when Al retired. If I can find a poem that was written as a tribute from that occasion, I will send it to you. I recall that Al was particularly delighted to receive a bottle of sparkling wine selected specifically for him by his colleagues called "Handsome Brut". May he rest in peace with that beautiful smile of his.
