He came to Princeton from Xavier High School in New York City, and majored in psychology. He was a member of the Glee Club, Theatre Intime, and Court Club.

After Princeton, Al served in the Army during the Korean War. He spent his entire working career in the textile industry, first in sales and marketing in New York, and then in manufacturing in Allentown, Pa. He was a board member of the National Knitwear Manufacturers Association, the oldest trade association in existence in the country at that time. He served as chairman of the board of trustees of the Allentown Osteopathic Hospital. Al also served on the board of the Community Music School of the Lehigh Valley.

Al's first wife, Carolyn, predeceased him. He is survived by his wife, Nancy; a son, Robert; daughters Marcia and Edith; and six grandchildren.
