Al served his country with 4 years in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. He moved to Cincinnati, then began his career as a quality control auditor at Proctor and Gamble. After retiring, Al built his own house, a lifelong dream, near Blanchester before moving back to Finneytown.
Al loved to spend time with his family, whether it was an annual golf trip, road trips, fishing, playing cards or dominos, working with his hands, or researching his family history.
Loving husband to wife Wilma (nee Smith) Weidl. Loving father to Kurt, Eric, and Chris. Opa to Angel Shiverdecker, and Chloe and Evan Weidl. Beloved brother to Leo, Mary, and Gerhard Weidl.

My deepest condolences from Japan. Al is my great and first teacher of microbiology in Procter, and I learned a lot from him.

Al was one of the supremely nicest human beings that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I learned so much from him. So sorry for your loss and grief, but I know you must find comfort in wonderful memories. Thank you for sharing him with all of us at P&G.

I worked with Al for many years and had the pleasure to travel with him. He was a great mentor, friend and colleague. I brought him out of retirement when he was 74 to help out in Petcare and he graciously accepted. I remember picking him up the first day, he was all ready to go and Wilma made me promise to take care of him. His sense of humor left me with great memories of the time spent with him. Rest in Peace Al and thank you for being part of my life. I am better for it.

It was my honor and privilege to have known and worked with Al. It is hard to express the sadness at the passing of man of such unique intelligence, kindness and integrity. Tears came to my eyes when he told me he was retiring - that we would no longer work together. They do now - that this noble guy will is gone.
