I met Al about 60 years ago. We had so many memories. The images are still vivid of our teen years with many friends in Malden, collecting 45 RPM’s and albums of the 60’s groups, ballgames in the streets and backyards, bowling, his 1964 Red Mustang convertible. Card games and parties during summers home from college , apartment roommates, early careers, being Best Men for each other, kids, dogs, kids weddings, etc. As time passed, we had frequent phone calls and saw each other every now and then, but not as much as we should have. Even though we were both “only childs” to our parents……….I would say we became brothers growing up.

In addition to his love for Beverly , Adam & Brian and their families, and dogs, he really, really, really loved 60’s music and all the groups…….he knew all the words to the songs and even up to last year still attended local concerts with Beverly to see the Turtles, Grass Roots, Gary Puckett, Cowsills, etc. And every conversation we had would never be complete until some remarks of his favorites--Tommy James and Orpheus.

Al, my oldest and closest friend……I miss you. RIP brother.

Here’s something we can always remember to comfort you and make you smile,

I went to school with Alan and even after all these years, I remember Alan as a larger than life figure with his humor and creativity.
As noted in his obituary and friends comments, Alan lived his life fully and with gusto.

Condolences to his family and friends.

I've thought of Alan so many times over the years with affection, and wish I had called. I have so many good memories of working with Alan in Somerville, which is where we met, of dinners at my house, of going to school with Alan at Boston State, of visiting him in North Brookfield, and of being so honored to participate in your wedding. One of my favorite memories is when Alan and I were on a break from class at Boston State in Kenmore Square, and we ran down to the Sears building to watch candlepin bowling on the tv sets in the electronics department! Ann Marie and I send our deepest sympathy, Beverly, to you and your family. From an old friend from years ago who is holding on to memories of a wonderful guy. Gene Ferraro
