Al was born on December 18, 1952 to Robert and Otillia (Bob and Tillie) Volesky in Dickinson, North Dakota. He grew up on the family dairy farm near Dickinson where he learned how to work hard, play hard, love family, and have faith in God. He was the third of seven children born to Bob and Tillie.
He joined the Air Force and served during the Viet Nam War as a Morse code analyst in Taiwan. His career in software development, software management, and data warehousing spanned 30+ years. He also owned a digital printing company before retiring to Morning Hill Ranch to raise goats.

Stacey and Chad Elstun have 3 grown children: Devin, Katelyn, and Ethan. Tom and Jenny Hollick have 1 daughter, Tenley. Crystal & Trevor Siller have 3 children: Makenna, Jace, and Addison.
Before becoming ill, Al excelled in any sport he tried. His favorites were basketball, which he played in high school and in the Air Force, and golf. Throughout his life, he loved watching his kids and grandkids in their sports, whether in-person or watching live-streamed events during COVID. He remained a kind, intelligent, capable man despite the limitations his condition presented. Dawn, his children, his family, and his friends will miss him terribly.
