    I had many dealings with AJ. He frequently came by to help our organization
    in time of need. He and I enjoyed kicking around different solutions to different local problems. He was a gentleman and certainly, one to be admired for his devotion to work. I considered AJ one of the very few down to earth friends I had the pleasure of dealing with frequently.
