As a father of six, Al was a guiding light for his children, offering unwavering support, wisdom, and unconditional love. His guidance and nurturing spirit shaped the lives of his children in profound ways, instilling in them values of integrity, compassion, and resilience.
To his nine grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, Al was a source of boundless affection and endless stories. He relished in watching them grow, sharing his experiences, and imparting his wisdom. His legacy lives on through them, as they carry forward the lessons and love he bestowed upon them.
He was not only a dedicated family man but also a pillar of love and kindness to the community and affectionately known as “Uncle Al, the kiddies’ pal.” He spread kindness to all who knew him.
In his 82 years, Al touched countless lives, leaving behind a lasting impression of warmth, compassion, and love. His memory will continue to shine brightly through the stories and shared experiences that unite us all.
Al is survived by his wife, Penny Froeschl, his children, Jennifer Dow (Paul), Kim Froeschl (Nancy), Christopher Froeschl (Jennifer), Linda Meinking, Allyson Froeschl (Andrew), Scott Froeschl (Meg), and his sister, Nancy Finneran and sons Craig, Douglas, and David, along with his grandchildren, Sam, Damon, Megan, Eric, Callie, Cameron, Jaden, Anson, and Gus, and beloved in-laws, Tim and Sheryl, and niece and nephew, Jessica and Dan.
As we bid farewell to this remarkable man, let us remember the lessons he imparted, the love he shared, and the enduring legacy he leaves behind. Al will forever remain in our hearts, a testament to a life well-lived and a love that knows no bounds. He always summed up his drive for life and resilience in one word – LOVE.
The family would like to honor his wishes to “Have a party and NO CRYING”.
