By 1976 Al decided to venture out on his own, buying out three other companies and then merged with Consolidated Petroleum Industries.

Al worked as a private consultant while serving as VP of Production in a number of Oil and Gas companies. Before retiring, Al was Vice President of Ensign Oil and Gas In Denver.

In 1989, Al met Beverly Blackstone, and they were married in 1990 and were blessed with over 27 loving years, traveling and enjoying their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren while still making time for many charitable organizations within their church and general community often preparing hot lunches for abused children at The Kempe Center for over 15 years.
