Al was committed to family above all. He loved his son and daughter beyond measure and was always there for them. He loved talking sports or business with his son. He loved Ohio State Football and many Saturdays were spent with his son talking about the Buckeyes. He was also a big Chicago Cubs and Bears fan. He loved talking about his life and adventures with his daughter. His granddaughter Sydney was his pride and joy and he was anxiously awaiting what college she was going to choose. Always the businessman, Al loved all things financial, reading about the stock market and watching financial shows. He loved musicals, big band music and Frank Sinatra. His favorite musicals were Oklahoma and Gigi.

Survivors include his son Steven Slakis, his daughter Paula Hammill, his daughter in law, Jennifer (Reising) Slakis, his son in law Roger Hammill and his granddaughter Sydney Slakis. The deceased will be laid to rest next to his loving wife at Resurrection Cemetery in Justice, IL
