Al tought guitar theory to me in a liltle room in the YMCA basement. What a sweetheart of a man. I will always cherrish the hours I spent with Al, he taught me more than guitar, we talked a lot about life and its many quirks. Loved him and his gentle way.

Rest In Peace, my friend. We had some wonderful times in our teaching studios at Weast Music. You always had my respect and admiration because of your musical skills and your incredible passion for teaching and playing. Condolences to your family!

So sorry for your loss, prayers are with your family. Mike loved playing guitar with him, and I've known him since I was little girl and visiting my mom (Charmane Walters) while working at Employment Office. He was always a joy to be around.

Al taught me how to play guitar when I was maybe 12. Very kind man with a great sense of humor.

I am so sorry to hear of Al's passing. He was a very special part of my childhood in Logansport. I took guitar lessons from him for three years while I was in elementary/middle school. I still think of him every time I hear "House of the Rising Sun" or "Brown Eyed Girl" because we would play them (and he would sing them) at least once in every lesson. After he encouraged me to sing and play guitar at the same time, I remember bringing in a few Taylor Swift songs to our guitar lessons and he would say "Kaylita, you are going to be a star someday with that voice of yours!" - his enthusiasm and encouragement followed me into high school where I sang in choir and received lead roles in music...als. I'm in college now and still pursuing music through lessons, choir, and shows. Al's joy, kindness, and work ethic still affect me today and I'm so grateful to have been able to experience his love and passion of music. I can't thank him enough for taking an interest in me at a young age.Read more
