He was born September 11, 1934 in Hancock, MI son of Joseph and Lou "Lulu" (Elmblad) Sirard.

He was an avid Detroit Lions and Tigers fan. He enjoyed participating in a hundred-year-old family tradition of making maple syrup in Baraga. When his wife Barbara was volunteering at Sacred Heart Catholic School, he enjoyed bringing cookies and ice cream to the students who referred to him as "Big Al".
