View the obituary here. You’ll see at the end of the obituary that Al’s family suggests donations to our parish and other parishes or play the lottery and light a candle. Al was always playing the lottery to win funds for the church. He was also a constant donor for one of the monthly candles in addition to his Sunday donation.
Al, and his wife Donna who preceded him in death, were one of the 4 families that started St. Athanasius parish in 1980. He was a past member of the parish advisory council and performed many functions for our church. Upon retiring Al constantly assisted with handyman projects at the church until he suffered a stroke numerous years ago. At the time he was serving as an acolyte at Resurrection Matins. May God grant his servant, Albert Macek, blessed repose and eternal memory.
