AJ as he was known was such a fun loving person to work with in the mill. I was there for 16 years where he was a paper inspector off the super calendar department. I also shop at Shaws and always enjoyed chatting with him about the "old days". He always had a smile and passed those smiles along. Going to miss you AJ. RIP

He was amazing! I only knew AJ from being a customer @ Shaw's but I would go out of my way to be in his line even if it meant waiting when a register was open. He was always smiling & knew how to put a smile an anyone's face. He will be deeply missed and remembered for a long time!
