Born Dec. 7, 1923, in Reading, he was the last surviving of three sons born to the late Pasquale and Francesca (Paone) Versace. Al graduated from Reading High School in 1941 and enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1943, where he was trained as a fighter pilot. He received an honorable discharge in 1946. Following World War II, he enrolled at Virginia Polytechnic University in 1946 and graduated with honors in 1950 with a Bachelor of Science in accounting. Al's career as a CPA began in 1950 with the accounting firm, Ernst & Ernst.
