  9. It was always a pleasure to work with Al …always felt safe working with him .. so knowledgeable about the job and such a nice person .. My heart goes out to the family ☘️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏😢

  10. It was with deep sadness that I learned of Al’s passing. Growing up with Al and Eddie in the State Street area we spent many a day together playing ball and doing what kids did back then. The years have been many since then but the friends we made as children and those memories of growing up together remain in spite of distances and life events. Those childhood memories live on in the hearts of all who new and loved Al. There’s a quote from the Scottish poet Thomas Campbell taken from his poem “Hallowed Ground” which speaks for all of us , “To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die”. May the Badamo family find peace in knowing Al will not be forgotten.

  11. It’s been so long since our paths crossed yet you’ve never been forgotten in my heart. Truly one of the kindest, most professional, people I’ve worked with on the railroad – or anywhere!
    I hope your family will take comfort in knowing how well thought of you have always been and that you’ve got friends that wish you God speed!

  12. I just read Al passed away . He was always a lot of fun to hang out with.
    I used to ride the Harleys with him now and then .
    Last time I saw Al was some time ago in Home Depot. Still the Conductor! R.I.P. my friend. Thanks for the laughs.
