His work career centered around sales, much of it involving real estate. Active in the community, he served as president of the Lions, Optimist, and Salem Board of Realtors as well as holding offices on the State Board of Realtors. Teaching real estate courses at Chemeketa Community College was something he enjoyed. Working on boards, committees and chairing financial drives was a way he gave back to the community. Golf was his game, especially with his River City Sam RV Club buddies. You know who you are! Travel was a real love of both he and Marcella. Starting with backpacking on the Skyline Trail with his family and ending with touring many countries of the world. He was a learner, travel always had a purpose, to experience what he had read about a country or to delve more deeply into the history and antiquities of a country. Al was a gentle and kind man, always liked people. He had a special deep bond of love with his children. It gave him great joy to see them mature, start their careers and be such productive citizens. His children and grandchildren gave their father such support and love. Farnstrom Mortuary of Independence will be in charge of a private family service. Burial will be at Smith Cemetery in Monmouth, Oregon.
