Al was united in marriage to Lois Olson on July 7, 1962, having met in the hospital where he was working as an orderly and she was a nurse.

Al retired from Northwest Airlines after 32 years and was an active member of Grace Lutheran Church since 1967. Al loved attending his grandchildren’s school events and activities, volunteering through the church and spending time at the cabin.  Nothing was more important to Al than Lois, who was the true love of his life.
