He volunteered many hours for his passion- The Right To Life. He was a charter member of the Fatima Council, Knights of Columbus.
Al leaves behind many O’Neill and McCormick nieces and nephews, Brassil cousins, family in Beara, County Cork, Ireland and also many devoted friends. His sharp wit and Irish humor will be missed.
