Mike Helmke

To the Struve family, I met Al in High School and enjoyed his perspective on life. Later, I ran into Al again while running for Sheriff. I enjoyed my visits with him catching up on our lives. Al was someone I would call a friend and supporter. May God Bless his soul. Mike Helmke San Antonio, TX.

Al will be greatly missed for his kindness and going out of his way for a person. I raced go-karts with him years ago when I shouldn't have. But those were the good memories of Al and many years later of meeting him again when he lived in Sheboygan. Many sympathies to the family and his son Brad. Al was a great father and human to have around. God bless you.
