Al grew up in Jackson, Michigan, and graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. But the work experience of his Father and Grandfather soon led him to his family’s occupation, the railroad industry. For almost forty years, he worked for several railroad companies and track material manufacturers, and subsequently lived in eight different States. Ultimately, he became Sales Manager for a concrete tie manufacturer in Denver, where he retired. At that time, Al and his wife Jo decided to trade the Front Range lifestyle for the small town lifestyle of Cedaredge, and moved to this community about four years ago. Al and Jo absolutely love Cedaredge, its people, and its lifestyle, and Al is proud to be serving the Town as a Trustee. Al and Jo have two daughters and two grandsons, who all enjoy visiting Cedaredge, and taking advantage of everything that it offers.
