Albert “Al” Heriaud passed on Saturday, May 23rd with his family and wife by his side in spirit and prayer as a result of COVID. Al was born on December 2nd, 1940 to Earl and Loraine Heriaud, the 3rd of 14 children. Al was an active part of the Aurora community having owned and participated in several businesses in town and playing Santa Claus to many young ones at Christmas time. He was the owner/ operator of The Shore Club on the Fox and had recently retired as trustee from the board of Fox Metro Wastewater Reclamation District.
