  1. So sorry to learn of Al’s passing. I knew him from the gym and thoroughly enjoyed his stories about growing up on the farm “in the old days”. He was a wonderful man.

  2. I’m so saddened to hear of Al’s passing. My deepest sympathy to Jackie and Family. Al was a wonderful friend and neighbor, always greeting you with a smile. He will be missed.

  3. We have enjoyed the many years we have rented Algerts land. Algert and my father Marvin Kuhn grew up together. My wife and I enjoyed the times we visited with Algert. We enjoyed speaking with him in German, at least the little bit we could speak. He was a kind and very thoughtful man. We will miss the telephone conversations we had; not only the business aspects but the personal conversations about his youth growing up in our area. He was a very nice and very entertaining gentleman! Our sympathy to the entire family!

  4. I was so sorry to read of Al’s passing. He was one of my favorite residents at Luther Memorial Home – Al always had a smile on his face no matter what. We would joke about having Steak & Lobster through his feeding tube. When he found out I collected $2 bills, he managed to find several for me. He was a very special person and I know he will be missed. My sincere sympathy to all of your family. Molly Lenaburg LMH Activity Dept

  5. I was so sorry to hear that Al had passed away. Time marches on, and we almost lose track of the years. It sounds like he had wonderful care for his last days. I’m thinking of you, Jackie, and am so sorry for your loss. I’m sure your family has so many wonderful memories of times together. I hope your sons and families live close to you as there is nothing more comforting than family. Sympathy and love to all ~ Audrey and Ardon Herman

  6. I love taking care of Al when he was in Mayville at the Luther Memorial Home. He always made us girls laugh and say how we do great work he will be truly missed.
