    I knew Fridge and Al for more than 70 years. I went to Chester High a few years behind Fridge. I worked at Sun Oil as a secretary from 1951 – 1955 and Al was a gas tester whose office was near mine. My condolences to the family. I have many happy memories of them. My husband was also from Marcus Hook.

    I knew Fridge and Al for more than 70years. Fridge was a few years ahead of me at Chester High and Al was a gas tester at Sun Oil when I worked around the corner from him from 1951-1955. My husband was also from Marcus Hook. Al is probably the last of the Marcus Hook gang. My sincere condolences to the family..
