Al enjoyed fishing with his grandchildren. The first person to catch a fish received a dollar from everyone else in the boat and of course there were the “famous” miniature golf playoffs with the loser buying malts. Al loved to play cards and when his family was together they always played “31” and “99”. Everyone had to show up with a big bag of quarters and Al played to WIN!
