Hello Phyllis,
I'm not sure you would remember me but A J and I were at La. Tech in the doctoral program at the same time. Though he majored in Marketing and I in accounting, we shared some good times. I enjoyed my interaction with him--he was always smiling, positive, and encouraging. My sympathies to you and your family. Harry McAlum

I knew A.J. growing up in Cameron, Mo. He seemed to always have a smile on his face and was a very friendly and agreeable personality. I remember him from both school and summer baseball. I am saddened by his passing. I'm sure all who knew him enjoyed his friendship. Mike Hanrahan

"Albie" was such a great guy. First met him in grade school when he came and played
on our St. Rita's football teams. Then, as I entered HS as a freshman, nobody was nicer to me than "AJ" and the guys in his class. He married a sweetheart, sympathy to she and Rich...and all of family. I can say I never witnessed
anything other than a generous and joyful demeanor when I was around "Albie". We
shared some occasional emails and always had some meaningful conversations on
those times we would see each other here, in his hometown of Cameron. He was
a great alumni to our school and member of our extended "Dragon Nation". Will miss
seeing him and being in presence of him, his stories, and humor.
