In true Al style he forged his own path on his own terms. He completed his Military Police training in Gagetown and had his first posting in Calgary. He was then posted to CFB Shearwater in 1988 as a Corporal where he met his soon to be wife Heather and their courtship began. After 2 weeks of dating, Al was posted to Germany. He continued a long distance relationship with Heather and asked her to marry him over the phone on Christmas eve of that year. They were happily married the following May and brought his new wife Heather and daughter Jennifer to join him in Germany in CFB Baden Soellingen. While in Germany, Al served a peacekeeping mission in Yugoslavia (now Croatia). He stayed in Germany until 1993 when the base was closed. At that time, he was then posted to CFB Greenwood where he was promoted to Master Corporal rank. He served two tours in Kosovo while posted in Greenwood. He was then posted to CFB Halifax in 2001 where he worked in IT security (N6). He welcomed his granddaughter into the world in March of 2003. Al’s final posting was to CFB Esquimalt where he was in charge of the tactical planning of the NATO Military Conference for which he received the Base Commander Recognition Award. He then retired in 2008 and moved back to Nova Scotia with his wife. He has continued to work for the Canadian government as a civilian under the Commissionaires and then Integrated Personnel Support Centres (IPSC). He has 29 years of military service and over 35 years of service to the Canadian government. He was a wonderful person, husband, father and grandfather who was loved wherever he went and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. ~~~~Please feel free to upload any photos you may have of Al to the Photo Album~~~~
