Al was raised in Alabama and served several years in the United States Army after being stationed at Fort Benning in Georgia, he was then stationed at Dugway Army Depot in Utah where he was Honorably Discharged in 1967.

He stayed in Utah and met the love of his life, Teressa and they were married on January 26, 1973, together they raised their family in Kearns, Utah.

Big Al loved to go hunting and fishing, there were many days spent on a lake shore or on a mountain looking for the buck that got away. Most of all, he loved his kids, grandkids, great-grandkids and his fur babies more than anything. They are his greatest achievement and legacy.

Al is survived by his wife- Teressa, Kids- Jodie & Scott Bartunek, Jenna & Jorge Sanchez, Justin & Dawn Sansing, Jason & Tina Sansing and Patsy Sansing Hooper, 26 grandkids and several great-grandkids. He is also survived by his brother- Dan Carr, in-laws- Jack & Doris Lopez, brothers-in-law- Perry & Leslie Brewer, Dan Lopez, and Chuck & Karin Parker, his special sisters Barbara Sansing and Darla Bourdon, numerous nieces and nephews and last but not least his fur babies- Missy and Dolly.
