Condolences & Shared Memories (8)

  1. Patrick Brady

    I've known Al for 13 years and he was a joy to work with. From the stories he told I can tell he lived life to the fullest. If success is measured in friendship and love, then he leaves us the wealthiest man in town.

  2. Eddie Kwan

    All words in this world can never express my sorrow and how much I missed this man. I worked with Al from Hong Kong and China for over 35 years. Way on top of business, more valuable would be his morality and supreme spirit of the family unity concept. Al is for sure one of my most respective friend. Our most sincere condolences to his loving family.

  3. Tom Hsu

    The first met with Al was more than 30 years in Taiwan, and then unaccountable meeting in Hong Kong and China. Al is a special person and we all learned from him a lot. He is not only a business partner but also a teacher to us. It seems not easy to speak of any consolation in the face of such a loss. Please extend our condolences to the members of your family.

    I had known Al for almost 25 years firstly as a customer then as a friend. He was a unique person and had a very kind heart and certainly loved his family very much. He will be missed by his business colleagues / friends in the U.K. and China. Our sincere condolences go to his loving family at this very difficult time.

    I worked with Al back in the 80's at Amerock and always enjoyed his infectious spirit. I just saw him last May at an Amerock reunion luncheon. and spoke with him afterwards, while he was sitting in his Corvette convertible.

    I work for Plastic Ingenuity, Inc. and had the privilege of working with Al since 2006. Our company has worked with Al for many, many years. Al was a joy to work with. He was a terrific company man, a fellow Green Bay Packer Fan, but moreover, he was most proud of his loving family. I wish you all peace in this difficult time. May the many wonderful memories you have of him live on in all of you! Best Regards, Tracie Wolfe
