Al”, as he was affectionally called, matriculated through the New York Public School System where he obtained his high school diploma. Al was employed as a custodian for many years, where he took pride and joy in his work. Al was an avid lover of sports and could often be found routing for his favorite teams, The New York Giants and The New York Knicks. Al was a lover of life. In his spare time, you would find him listening to smooth jazz or enjoying the musical ensembles composed by one of his favorites, Barry White.
He leaves to cherish his precious memories, a loving wife, Ogdene Ricketts of the home; three daughters, Renee Coker, Yvette Adams, and Florence Purdy; special nieces, Felicia Ricketts and Gail Ricketts; and a host of many relatives and friends that he loved dearly.
