I was a classmate of Alan's at Norwin H.S. (and maybe also Immaculate Conception School?)

Very sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to his family.

I worked for Al at Mars Bank from 1993 until he retired. He was a wonderful, kind boss and a great person. My sincere sympathy to the Petrosky family.

To the Families of Al: I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Al when he was with West View Savings Bank. We had the pleasure of his company last summer at a picnic with former bank employees. It was a great time and I will remember him from that day.
