Remember your Please and Thank You's

Please and Thank You. Two simple little words we all could spell by the third grade. Two simple little words many of us forgot sometimes in those long years between third grade and our arrival at Williston; two simple words that Al LaValle constantly reminded us to say, and never let us get away with forgetting. The lessons we learned every day from Al at the cage will stick with us for life. Al has made us accountable for our actions: turn in your uniforms late, do push-ups. Hoard towels or socks in your locker for an entire season, and there will be none for you to take the next day. Give respect, get respect. Years from now, when we are all (hopefully) a little more grown up, we will remember the lessons that Al made stick. We will remember to say please and thank you, we will remember to turn in our towels at the 24-hour fitness center, we will know how to treat the people who help us. We will remember Al.

We were a tough crowd, but Al has managed to make his life lessons stick. Al is the second dad we all wish we had. Never condescending, always funny, he is the person at Williston we go to for advice. Like Lucy from Peanuts, (although he has yet to actually collect the 5 cents he proclaims to charge), Al is always ready to give advice on the boyfriends, classes, coaches, parents, teammates, college, bad grades, the proper manner to fold socks, the location of the bags, and the locker combinations we never remember. Al has truly lived life, and is always ready to help us get through it all. The hardest days are always a little easier after a trip to the cage.

Williston Class of 2007 Yearbook Dedication

We, the class of 2007, dedicate the yearbook to the man who has survived everything, crazy cage assistants, our break-ups, and hook-ups, not to mention the football and hockey team.The guy we laugh with, the guy we cry to, and the guy we always remember - Al is a true teacher in every sense of the word, and for this, we dedicate our senior yearbook to Al LaValle.

"What do you say about a person who has made such an impact on you? For me, Al has been a confidante, a teacher, a psychiatrist (thank god he only charges 10 cents a session!), and a friend. Al offers insight and guidance into just about every part of life. On "the other side of the pond", he is the person you can count on, because whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!"

"You can't place Al into a category; you can't put words down on paper to describe what he has done for the students and the school. It's his presence that makes him such an important figure to us."

"He works so hard each and every week to get the athletes their uniforms and equipment. Even if you don't do sports, he's always there with a smile. He always takes time for us kids whether it be advice, gossip, or just talking. Al seems to be loving life and it's just awesome to see a really chill adult with a genuine interest in our wellbeing."

Words for Al

Today I lost a great friend. You taught me so much about life and what it means to really live it.You fought the good fight and I am happy you can now rest in peace.Here's to you Al. My mentor.My family.My dear friend.

You were an inspiration to so many and created incredible memories at Williston that we will never forget...Al you were an amazing person and will never be forgotten!

RIP Al. Williston was a better place with you around. A lot of wisdom came from inside the cage.

RIP AL. Got the chance to work with him for a season after surgery and he is such a great guy. It was impossible NOT to like Al. Was always there to talk to through my injury. I'm so sad to have heard this. You will be missed. Thank you Al.

You were a great person to encounter in life, we are lucky to have known you...RIP Al.

RIP Al. Spending time with you at the cage was what inspired me to work with my college football team which was one of the greatest experiences of my life. You will never be forgotten.

Rest in peace Al.... Such a great guy.. he will be missed by everyone.. so sad when this happens to the best people.. didn't deserve this.

Two things from Williston will always stick with me "please and thank you" and "No means No!" You will be missed Al
"Greatttt!!!!" -Al LaValle...i will never forget his comparison btw Tony the tiger and Mr. Conroy rest in peace i will never forget the good times

RIP Al LaValle, thank you for all you did, you made my own life and many others at Williston so much better, you will be missed greatly

Willy Prep lost a legend yesterday, but Al Lavalle will never be forgotten. Sorry I stole all those cage socks! RIP

Al always was a fighter. Sleep peacefully my friend. You will be missed by so many ♥

RIP Al. You were so much more important to everyone at that school than could ever be expressed with words. Watch over us... And by the way, I may have stollen a slider in 2008. Love yaaa

RIP Al Lavalle. Never taught a class but more importantly he taught us all a lot about life. Thanks one last time, Al.

Thanks for always being there for us and helping us through everything Al. You will never be forgotten. RIP

RIP Al - I feel so privileged to have known you and I have so many memories of picking up uniforms at the Cage and getting a smile from you and of course a reminder of the value of a simple "please" and "thank you"

always remember your please and thank yous.... RIP AL..

I have never been more proud to be a Williston alum. Al's passing has brought together the Williston community in a way that no special assembly or Diversity Day ever could. He has reconnected old friends and brought
back some of our fondest memories.

Even in death Al Lavalle continues to make Williston a brighter place, even for those of us who no longer attend. Thank you for everything Al. "Long may we cherish" your memory.

all of these posts about Al just show how he influenced all of our lives.. we are lucky to have known him

I am not perfect nor at my full potential but I am lucky enough to understand that I have been touched by some pretty amazing people in my life. One of which passed away yesterday. Al you made me a better person. You were there for me in a way words can not describe and a way I will always be thankful for. Even with your passing you have taught me to appreciate those who are special in my life and to make sure they know just how much they mean to me. You will forever have a place in my heart and will always be missed. RIP Al LaValle ♥

Al was one of the few truly genuine people you meet in life. If we all could be a little more like him the world would be a better place.

RIP AL from Williston you always had a smile on your face and my Williston athletic experience was so much better for interacting with you everyday

RIP Al, I will always remember my pleases and thank yous. Your kind heart will be missed by the Williston community and everyone you touched.

Al, you will be trully missed by the Williston Community but your legacy will live on forever. I hope you know how much you touched my heart and the hearts of my fellow classmates during our years at Williston. You taught us how to live life to the fullest and never regret any moment. I hope to one day live my life with such a positive outlook on life and embrace every day the way you did. I know you're smiling down on all of us tonight and there is no better feeling knowing that you're still watching over me :)

Thank you for teaching me what's important in life, I'll never forget you Al :)
Williston just lost one of the nicest people I met in that community. Al, thanks for everything, I'll never forget getting chirped everytime i walked by the cage

Rest in Peace Al. You have influenced the lives of so many. Williston will miss you.

Rest in Peace Al. I honestly wouldn't be the man I am today without your life lessons at the cage.
