Long time Yelm business owner Al Victor passed this plane this morning (Mother’s Day).
Al was having a grand day yesterday cutting hair in his own shop in Yelm as he so loved. He was at home this morning, and went for his daily Neighborhood Walk, and when he did not return, his beloved his partner Jason went looking for him. He found him dead, after a beautiful morning sunrise.
He had what is being described as a “pulmonary event.”
Al was the owner of Al Victor’s Beauty Salon, which just had a grand re-opening as a tenant in Prairie Plaza, as reported here March 27, 2009.
His family wants his body flown back to Michigan for burial there.
Details are pending about any remembrances here.
Will keep you posted.
I met Al at a Ramtha Retreat in Snow Mountain, Colorado in May of 1988 – the first official class of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment.
Al always had a smile and a kind word whenever I saw him, which I did just recently.
Godspeed on your next adventures, sweet man!
You will always be remembered and loved for adding to the color of Yelm!

UPDATE: May 13, 2009
Al’s 89 year-old mother is making arrangements to have the body flown back to Detroit for internment in the family plot. Close friend Karla Davidson is traveling with Al’s partner Jason (aka George McDonald) on Northwest Airlines tomorrow to Detroit, as well. Jason will be one of the pallbearers.
A memorial service here will be held Sunday, May 24th at the Lake Lawrence Club, 2pm.
You are invited to bring your own food & drink to celebrate Al’s life – a man that touched our hearts & souls.
