    A;bert and I were friends since our college years. We surfed together in NewJersey. He moved here to New Smyrna in 1999 and we became reconnected. We became fishing buddies here.He would do anything for anybody. Albert was a strong and proud man. I was at his side with family and friends his last two weeks. He was a fighter to the end. You are missed everyday and I especially miss you calling me and saying, "HeyJan it's me" Love you Albert.

    Jenn,Kyle and Albert:
    I had been friends with your Dad since he first went to work for ARCO. He was a good friend and shipmate. I know he was a staunch Yankee fan as am I. We had a lot of fun over the years getting on Bosox fans especially the guys Al went to Mass Maritime with. I'm glad they won this year before he passed on. My condolences.

    I was a friend of your Dad and sailed with him for over twenty years. Al was a professional Mariner and a hard working individual who was well respected by all who he sailed with. Al would always talk about you all at sea when we told family stories. He will surely be missed.
