Al and I served together in the Greater Little Rock Jaycees, and on many community projects through out Arkansas and International activities-in addition to have served in the USAF. As a friend he will be missed, but the memories of him shall live on Forever.
My mom and I have many fond memories of Al and Binnie from JD And travel baseball. Loved those baseball trips. Al was such a gentleman. Thankful to have spent time with him.
I am so sorry to hear this. He was such a joy to watch all the LRCA baseball games with. Sweet memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Condolences from the Richburg family. Thinking of you all during this time.
The world became a little less brighter when Al got sick and passed away. What a wonderful, kind and generous man he was. We will always cherish his gifts to us and will truly miss the stories he would tell. He was a proud patriot of our country. Jackson will always remember that Al taught him the right way to hold a gun. Family gatherings will just not be the same without him. Many prayers and love to all those who love Al. May he rest in eternal peace and love.
Thinking of you and your family, Craig.

Al was so knowledgeable on so many historic matters. He loved his boys and grand children and loved to brag on them so much! He loved his wife Binnie genuinely! We still have paper money he brought back from Desert Storm to the family members. (Still waiting for the value to go up). He loved all his family and no doubt he will be missed! Rest peacefully Al.
