Later he moved with his family to Doon, Iowa where he attended Doon Christian School. After completing his education, he moved with his family to Bigelow, Minnesota. Then when he was 17 years old, they moved to Pipestone, Minnesota and Al worked on the farm. On November 26, 1942, he was united in marriage to Ellen Halbersma at her family’s farm near Pipestone. Following their marriage, they lived on a farm in Gray Township of Pipestone County. Besides farming, he worked at the sale barn. Later, he became employed by Pan-O-Gold Bakery in Pipestone.
