Mr. A.J. was a good man. He was a positive influence and role model in my life, as he was for so many others over so many years.

We students of AJ truly loved him as our teacher and principal. I knew him first as my teacher in elementary school and then as our principal in high school. He never forgot us throughout the years.

I regularly sat with A.J. at Ponchatoula Rotary meetings. He and I were "Birthday Buddies" and enjoyed the singing of the birthday song. A.J. was a favorite of many members, particularly the Ladies who often joined him at lunch. I will miss him and his friendly, wise and professional ways. You are now with your lovely wife, Colleen. who often joined you at Rotary activities.

God Bless you and your family. You will be long remembered as a friend and mentor to many.

My deepest sympathy at the loss of such a lovely man. My family and I have known him from high school days and I had the pleasure of seeing him again at many of the St. Tammany Parish School evaluations. He never forgot a face and always had a nice word for everyone. I will always remember his endearing smiles and many words of comfort and praise.
