Al loved to ride his motorcycle and traveled to 48 contiguous states and Canada with family and close friends. He was a member of the Gold Wing Road Riders Association (GWRRA). He was a Traffic Engineer for KDOT for over 25 years and recently retired. He enjoyed bowling and was on leagues throughout most of his life. Al had unconditional love and support for his family and was happy to jump at any opportunity to help them with anything but mostly making sure they were safe and happy. He never missed a moment to make a stranger smile with a kind gesture or a funny remark, and tended to leave a lasting impression on anybody he came into contact with. He loved what God provided him on Earth. He enjoyed hunting and gardening with his late father and children, in turn he would make homemade goodies to share with others. He will be missed dearly but never forgotten.

The family will greet friends from 1 – 3 p.m. prior to the service on Saturday at the mortuary.

Memorial contributions may be made in his name to Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and may be sent in care of Warren-McElwain Mortuary.
