remembering Al and Art

Al Keglovits

Al Keglovits was a father, a husband, a teacher, a coach, a bartender, a comedian, a New York Yankees fan, a golfer - and a friend to all who knew him. Fighting Cancer, seeing how he fought it was an inspiration to all of us. Al Keglovits, was one of those guys who had a dynamic personality. Kids, colleagues and all opponents were drawn towards his magnetic charm…Al drew you closer to him. He knew he had a fight on his hands when he was diagnosed with cancer. He fought it right up to the end. He never, never quit. Unfortunately he couldn't rally one more time. What is important is what the Man, Al Keglovits, did with his life. The example set was one of courage. He loved his Family, he loved his Friends and he loved Basketball. Coaching and teaching were instinctive for Keglovits. He will be remembered by all his players, friends, those he toasted life to. Coach Keglovits, will always be remembered for his tremendous ever so dry sense of humor. He was one of those guys you always wanted to be around. Al made you feel comfortable but watch out for the next zinger, it was probably going to be aimed at you. Among all of his positive traits, Al Keglovits will be most remembered by his family and friends for his sense of humor and his love for the game of basketball."
