My deepest sympathy for all of his family and friends! My sisters and I would see him and his wife at the 99 often and they were such a beautiful couple! We would fight over who would buy their drinks. The world has lost a sweet man! I pray for healing and comfort for Ruth in this very difficult time! He is in God’s hands now! Peace and love! Diana

I will forever remember Al and Ruth as a part of my life. Working for many years at the 99 and having amazing conversations with these two. They’d always bring home a baked potato for a cat, and Al always made it noted that it wasn’t theirs. The way he always cared for Ruth while they were out was undeniable the love they shared. I shared a lot of love and thought of them as my own grandparents. Al will forever be missed and in the heart of the 99 familyz
