    We are saddened by the news that Al passed away. Doug remembers first meeting him at the Montour power plant where they worked so well together. Then we met again in Allentown.

    Al was a fantastic man with a great personality and terrific work ethic. He was a GOOD man in every way. We’re sure that his loss will be felt throughout your community and Church.

    We offer our condolences, thoughts and prayers for you and your family.

    Elsie and family – my condolences on the passing of Al. I came to Holtwood in 1986 at the Land Management office on top of the hill, reporting to the Real Estate Department at that time. While I did not report to Al, he was very helpful and supportive to me in my work handling the land, water and public items outside the power plant. I also remember Al involved as a member of the Holtwood Public Advisory Committee after he retired. Al had a great knowledge of Holtwood and I always respected his knowledge and judgment.

    Great man! Wish the best to Elsie and family. Always impressed me how excited he was about driving a forklift after he retired. He had a great work ethic and made the most of each day

    Dear Elsie and family, We and sorry to hear of Al’s passing. I worked for Al at Holtwood in the late 1980’s. He was a good man with a kind heart. We had some good times at the plant and I’ll always remember when he took me on my first water ski adventure on Lake Aldred. Unfortunately, Bonnie and I are out of town and will miss Al’s memorial service. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless and take care, Greg Smith
