Al is sadly missed and loved by those he was closest to, his adopted family, Evelyn McTavish (Karl); Sue Coplin (Tom) & Corenia Chester (Wayne), Jim Jones (Lesley) and Wade Jones (Mary Ellen); plus the numerous nieces and nephews, who enriched Al’s life, always included him in family gatherings and enjoyed his humour. We will miss your hilarious phone calls, Ally Oop!
