Condolences for Alfred “Alky” J. Welcome Jr. of Dunstable

    Bill Mann

    I’m so sorry that I didn’t look “Al” up after he retired from the M.S.P. He broke me in, at Leominster, as a new Trooper in 1967. I have fond memories of the adventures we had together and always held him in the highest regard as a man and as a Mass.State Police Officer. He is truly missed. My genuine condolences to his family and friends.
