A class stalwart, Al died Feb. 16, 2021, at his Hightstown, N.J., home. 

After graduation from the Peddie School, he followed his father, William 1911, and his brother John ’45 to Princeton. He managed several teams, belonged to Elm, and earned a degree in basic engineering.

His nine-year military service started as an enlisted man in the New Jersey National Guard, then as a commissioned officer at Fort Sill Artillery School instructing artillery gunnery. His service ended with a one-year combat tour in Korea, where he earned his captain’s bars as a battery commander.

In 1957 he graduated from Rutgers Law School. His career as a trial attorney included private practice, chief federal prosecutor for New Jersey, and chief of claims and first litigator in the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office. Following retirement, he arbitrated complex legal disputes.

Al served our class and the University well. He was class president from 2005 to 2010 and a long-term executive committee member, ran many class reunions, and was on the University’s Alumni Council.

He loved to ski, play and officiate racquet sports, travel, and vacation at New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee. 

His son, Craft, survives him. His wife, Joan, whom he met while skiing prior to law school, and daughter, Gail, predeceased him.
