Condolences from the family of Manfred Wetzel (deceased). Nancy, July 11, 2020 Al and Marion Streder have been neighbors of ours on Lake Medora in northern Michigan. My family and I have had the pleasure of getting to know Al and his family during their time at the lake, through neighborly social visits. In fact I have always anticipated and looked forward to such occasions, which unfortunately were not often enough. Al was a wonderful person, always happy, always proud; someone who offered his friendship and someone who will be missed. We send our deepest condolences to those who were close to him. Cary S. Trecartin and Family, July 5, 2020 Al was a sweet and courteous gentleman who will be greatly missed. May you all find comfort in knowing that you are thought of with love and sincere sympathy. Shelia Bowles and Amy Burgess Shelia Bowles, July 3, 2020 Uncle Al was a great man with many stories and always willing to hear you out and care for family. My memory always goes to his cigars anytime I am around the smell. Will be missed, but always remembered. Daniel Niederer, June 27, 2020 Marion and Family - Rita and I send our sincere sympathy. We thought so much of Al and are grieved to learn of his passing. He was always such a kind and outgoing person. He made everyone he met feel special and treated them as a dear friend. We will sorely miss hearing his cheery voice and seeing his smiling face at church activities. He frequently offered wise counsel to the committees on which we served together. He will be missed. Love leaves behind more than death can take away. May God grant you the peace that passes understanding. Sincerely,
Crozier and Rita Brown, May 21, 2020
