Al spent his first 40 years trucking cattle with his dad and then his brother Adam. When he turned 60, he made the move to Kamloops and began a career as a security guard. He worked for Ronik Security for 8 years before retiring.
He enjoyed bowling and slow-pitch baseball. Alec was an avid Chicago Blackhawks fan and enjoyed watching football immensely. He also enjoyed participating in hockey pools with his friends. Alec was a member of the Valleyview Overlander Lions club for a few years and contributed greatly with his ability to help fundraise for the club.
