Jennifer and I first met Al and Karen when we became neighbors in Old Saybrook in 2011. As retired guys, Al and I soon realized we had much in common, and became good friends. Although we enjoyed many activities together, flying (and crashing) model aircraft soon became our favorite. As members of the RC Propbusters Flying Club in Salem, we enjoyed many hours building, tuning, flying and repairing our model planes. I’ve posted a couple of photos of Al flying one of his planes for the first time with Mark O’Connell standing by to lend a hand as needed. I will dearly miss the company of my helpful, kind, and caring friend Al.

Jennifer and I offer our sincere condolences and love to Karen and the entire family.
