The world is a little more somber today, for a beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Friend - a true gift to us all - has taken his place in Heaven. Our dear Al takes his place alongside his father Manuel, mother Ana, father-in-law Jose and mother-in-law Albertina in Paradise.
If you ever had the chance to meet Al, then you were truly blessed and extremely loved. Al was a firm believer in living life to its fullest potential. He was the Center of our Universe and his presence on this Earth will deeply be missed.
However, what we will remember for the remainder of our days is his positive outlook on life and family. As long as he lives within our hearts, then he will never be far away. We will always remember him as a GIFT to us all.
Al was 61 years old when he passed away in Tracy, CA on January 8, 2022. He was born on November 30, 1960, in Pedro Miguel, Faial, Azores and called Tracy his home for the past 52 years. Al graduated from Tracy High School. He worked for the Tracy Unified School District for 40 years.
