Born April 26, 1933, in Chicago, Ill., he was one of two children of George and Florence (Wallenstein) Vallee. Following school, he was self-employed as a painting contractor and later as a wild game processor.
On June 13, 1979, he married Karen Worley in Chicago. The couple and their families later moved to Wyoming, finally settling in Thermopolis.
A passion for architecture, he loved dogs, hunting and the great outdoors. Multitalented, he always said he was born 100 years too late as he had an affinity for the old west. He was a gun smith and custom stock maker. Al never met a person he couldn't call a friend.
He is survived by his wife, Karen; sons, Christopher Vallee and Louis LaBoy, both of Thermopolis and George Vallee of Chicago; daughters, Donna Frick and Diana Larsen, both of Chicago and Christina Witt of Missoula, Mont .; twelve grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by a sister, Shirley Snyder; daughter, Virginia Walker; and son, Will LaBoy.
A lifelong Catholic, a private mass will be held because of Covid but a celebration of his life will be held in the spring.
