Alfred James Aguirre, husband, father, grandfather and friend, left us on Saturday, September 18th with his family by his side. He was 82.

Al was born on March 12, 1939 in Colorado. He was a musician from the age of 9 years old until his last days. Everyone enjoyed hearing him play the saxophone with his band or just playing for family and friends. He retired from America Can Company at the age of 50. He then started a second career as a barber in Dublin. He loved his customers as many became dear friends of his. He was loved by everyone that knew him and would stop to talk with people wherever he went. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Eva, of 55 years, his 4 children, 2 son in-laws and 5 grandchildren.

Memories Timeline


  1. CandleWe all miss your presence, your mischievous ways(no harm intended , that was you) your music.🎶
    You are no longer suffering, you are at rest.
    But on your next journey you will be with all those that have gone before us and will have a big party up there❤️

  2. Al, you were more than just an Uncle. You were a person I learned a lot from and respected you dearly. I am going to miss our talks, you playing music and the jokes and stories you told. Our times in the garage listening to music and having a few beers are memories I will cherish forever. Now you are playing the saxophone up in Heaven for the angels…

  3. CandleI Loved and now miss my brother Al. My childhood best friend. I have the memories of good times and our struggles and God and love brought our family through it all. Not unscathed but returned from battles with humble adoration and love for God. Al was very intelligent an intellectual in many academic achievements. He taught me while I lay dieing in Children’s Hospital. I received my high school diploma by the age of 7 and 5 AAs before I was 10 years old. Al was a good teacher. I died for 58 minutes and came back to life. I lost all my education was completely paralyzed and gained total amnesia. My memories are now better than then. I will always praise God for having a brother like Al. I pray he’s at peace singing with the Angels. And quit waking everybody up with that dang horn lol. I Love you always my dear brother Al RIP. Rocky Garcia.
