“Al,” as he was affectionately known, attended the public schools of Worcester County in Maryland and Broward County in Florida. After completing school, he set his sights on becoming a hard worker and advancing with every opportunity he was presented. His passion was masonry and he was good at it.
Even though he loved working, his greatest love was for his family and friends. Al would do whatever he could do to help any of his family. In his leisure, he enjoyed fishing and cooking. He could always be found cooking on the grill or stove; he truly loved cooking for everyone. Al was loved by so many people. He will be remembered as a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend.
Al leaves to mourn: his wife, Vivian Schoolfield; six children, Tameka Fletcher, Nikisha M. Deshields, Brianna Schoolfield, Anita Ballard, Terrell Hayman, and Dwayne Hayman; sixteen grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; two sisters, Denise Schoolfield and Amber Schoolfield; four brothers, George L. (Clay) Robinson, Ollie Robinson, Franklin (Rosa) Harmon, and Larry (Margaret) Holden; one uncle, Woodrow (Denise) Wilson, Jr.; five aunts, Janie M. (Frances) Christopher, Mae C. (Michael) Palmer, Deborah Taylor, Vickie Wilson, and Peggy (Anthony) Dickerson; special cousin who was like a sister, Tammy Yarns; two aunts-in-law, Cordelia Wilson and Kathy Grant Burch; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a special cousin, Barbara Collins Schoolfield.
