Al lived for over 40 years on a beautiful property just outside Stouffville, Ontario which he transformed from a farmers field into a sanctuary for birds and wildlife. He was an early supporter of the reintroduction of Trumpeter Swans into Ontario and hosted several pairs of swans on the sizable pond he created on the property.

He was a successful salesman for Mercedes Benz of Canada in North York, Ontario

Al and Joan loved to camp at Killbear Provincial Park, and  traveled by air and cruise ship well into retirement. He loved to bicycle and could be seen riding along the concession roads near his house all through the year. He was an active man who loved to be outdoors and will be fondly remembered as he sat in front of the campfire with his coffee cup sipping a Scotch and Dambuie.
