Al is a longtime resident and community supporter who has lived in Coos Bay since he was in the first grade, graduating from Marshfield High School in 1963.
Al is a widely-recognized and respected community member through his work with the Les Schwab Tire Company. Having started his career with the former Stamper’s J and J Tire Co (which sold to Les Schwab) in 1962 while still in high school, Al through the years became the assistant manager at the Coos Bay store and managed the Coquille store for sixteen years where he was very active in community affairs.
