Alís life began in Wittenburg, WI on May 31, 1921. His family moved to Climax-Scotts area where he attended school and worked on the family farm.

Al and June had three daughters, Linda and Wilbur Harvey of Portage, Margie and Robert Goertler of Vicksburg, and Shirley and Gary Meyle of Fulton.

Al also read many novels about the Old West. He also enjoyed listening to Big Band music, wearing all types of whimsical hats, and he never missed a garage sale.
