Fuchs Jr., age 71 of St. Cloud who passed away on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at the St. Cloud Hospital. Reverend Tom Knoblach will officiate. Burial will take place at a later date.

Al was born on October 31, 1943 in Chicago, Illinois to Alfred Sr. and Rose (Stepanovich) Fuchs. He graduated from St. Cloud Tech High School, attended college briefly, and served in the Army Reserve. He married Rosemary Kruger on August 25, 1979 in St. John Cantius Catholic Church, St. Cloud.

Al was an avid Green Bay Packer fan, enjoyed fishing, bowling and model railroading. Most of all he loved spending time with family and friends. He will be remembered as the guy with a big smile, big mustache, and even bigger heart as shown by his love for his sons and wife.

He was retired but enjoyed his truck driving days for Anderson Trucking, JM Oil, Stemm, and PJF Transport.

Al is survived by his wife Rose; sons Christopher and Benjamin; brother Gary and wife Patty Fuchs; sister June and husband Ron Hoffman. He was preceded in death by his parents.

A heartfelt thank you to all who supported Al and his family during his illness – especially Dr. Shawn Day, Country Manor Rehabilitation, the St. Cloud Hospital and Palliative Care.

Memorials are preferred.
