He graduated from McClusky High School and went on to barber school in Fargo, North Dakota. During this time, he was a waiter so he could pay his tuition.

He met his wife, Janice, while barbering in Bismarck, North Dakota. Introduced by a friend they hit it off and married on December 3, 1960.

He went to college during the evening so he could obtain his accounting degree.

They moved to Great Falls, Montana in 1963, where he worked at the Anaconda Company for 19 years and continued barbering.

He continued to barber as he enjoyed the conversations as much as he did cutting hair.

Al and Janice raised five children. He enjoyed camping and fishing with his kids.

He was a little league coach and eventually became the president of the Northside Little League. He had a passion for all events his children were involved in and participated whenever he could.

He was involved in several organizations such as the Jaycees, Moose Lodge, square dancing, and Black Eagle Volunteer Fire Department.
