Serving others and his community were hallmarks of Al’s legacy. Al was gifted in many trades, such as woodworking, construction and mechanics and enjoyed sharing those gifts generously with family and friends. As a member of the Scottish Rite of the Freemasonry, and the Phoenix ATV / UTV Club, he found opportunities to fulfill that servant’s heart and benevolent nature. Never sitting still, Al’s eagerness to serve touched many.
Services will be held at the Louis B. Hazelton Cemetery at 23100 W Broadway Rd, Buckeye, AZ, on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 11am.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be made to either Hospice of The Valley or the Ivy Brain Tumor Center in honor of Albert Scott Leslie. These two organizations hold a special meaning to the family for their help to Al and our desire to see others benefit from their service.
