  1. Pappy was one of my favorite softball players. He was a teammate in the “Olden” days of fast pitch softball. He could hit it a mile, and always had a smile. I thought he might be the one to live forever. My condolences to his family

  2. Al was a regular visitor to the softball fields of Fulton. If not sitting at a picnic table or his folding chair, he was in his van watching the games.
    He knew many of the teams, what night they played and when the most competitive teams played.
    My uncles told me stories of working with Al on plumbing jobs where he would carry bath tubs up and down stairs by himself!!
    May his family find comfort in the knowledge his memory will live on in others as well as themselves.
    Al’s chair will be placed in front of the press box at Denesha Field prior to games in his memory.
    He will be greatly missed!!
