Big Al had a personality that was larger than life and had a giant heart, loved to spend time with his family and friends, and really enjoyed watching his grandchildren grow up and play sports. He had a positive influence on many young people’s lives through the years. He was proud of being a Union sheet metal worker all of his adult life, where he represented both Cleveland Local 33 as a Business Manager and was a Vice President for the Sheet Metal Workers’ International Association.
