|Let the memory of Alton "Al" be with us forever|
"It's been a year since Al passed away but the memories of all the good times we had together will never fade.
Al, you're missed and loved. Hope your energy is experiencing something wonderful.
Love love love"
"Happy Birthday Al! Love & miss you!"
"From Mick Baldwin:
Had a few nights out in jonnies when i first got here. This fella was a part of the fixtures & fittings of the place, which lead to a great friendship. R.I.P mate, the world has lost a great fella."
"From Whitney Kemp Bannon:
Man it sucks so bad that Al is gone! I've had so many fab nights in Johnny's drinking with Al he was always great for a laugh and a chat!! Greenwich ave is really gonna miss ya!!"
I remember AL saying that he didn't like me at first bartending.Then he saw me Throw out someone who was causing trouble,and I got the AXE handle out.started swinging it around my head CUSSING this guy out a new A HOLE.AL then said "I LIKE THIS GIRL".who knew thats what it would take.RIP AL.I will always remember you my sweet man!"
"From Casey Gomes:
RIP Al, You kept the tone civil and kept me on my best behavior when I used to go to Johnny's. You were always a welcome site whenever you'd walk through the door. I'll be missing you."
What a man.What a friend.He experienced things in life that most of us couldn't imagine.teaching life lessons without seeming to be teaching.He would tell stories about people or Vietnam or the headlines in the paper.If you paid attention,it applied to whatever you were going through.He chose to keep his wisdom under the radar and will be remembered fondly!Peace Always My Friend."
There are people who come into your life with little fanfare yet you are forever changed by having known them. Al was one of those people. From his unique speech- the mumble-aya- to his taste in music, Al was Al; unflinching, intelligent, hilarious, thoughtful and loving. Energy never dissipates, so I know mah brotha is giving someone shit about something- just in a different dimension"
"From Jo Baldwin:
What a guy, Al you were a true legend. You will forever be in my thoughts. Heaven has gained an angel. R.I.P. my friend xxx"
"From Tracy Gulbenkian:
I learned so much from him. He will always have a special place in my heart."
"From Bernice Helenne:
I remember Al would invariably be eating something delicious, and he would always share his food, making you up a little plate. He was a part of Johnny's since I can remember, and was a very caring man, and quite loyal to his friends. Rest in peace, Al, it was a pleasure to know you."
"From Louise Goulding:
Al...what a man!! Bless him. x x x"
"From Nathaniel Roberts:
Legend. End of. The guy WAS jonny's. Such a great guy. Got to meet so many people through him. Superb times. I hated the tickets off him though, never won!!"
"From Bret Isaacs:
He was a good, caring, sharing man who left his legacy and his spirit with those he touched.
You’ll be missed, Alton"
"From Joe Grugel:
Al always took care of Natasha. That gave me peace of mind. How can you thank the man that made sure the woman you love came home safe? Inept and inadequate, my thanks, love and may peace be yours my friend."
You are such a special and important part of my life...
I probably have thousands of memories of you... all bright and colorful in the file cabinets of my mind.
Yet, when I go to the source... to the root feeling. What I most want to say is simple...
I love you...
...and I thank you.
We will see each other again."
"Love you Alton! R.I.P. Thanks for being more of a father to me than my own. Thanks for all the laughs, talks, etc... I miss you luv!"
Have a suggestion for us?
