A Fairmont native, Al was born May 31, 1930, the son of the late Aloysius and Anna Eleanor Grottendieck Staud.

Al was the youngest of eight children, all of whom attended Catholic school for 12 years at St. Peter Parish in Fairmont, where he was affectionately referred to as little Buddy Staud. He was awarded a basketball scholarship to St. Joseph's University and graduated with the Class of 1952.

Al served his country in the Korean War where he was awarded the Korean Service Medal with Bronze Service Star, National Defense Service Medal and Good Conduct Medal.

Upon returning to Philadelphia, Al worked full time at Prudential Insurance Co. while simultaneously attending Temple University School of Law through the GI Bill. In 1959, Al graduated from Temple Law and passed the bar exam. He was admitted to practice as an attorney at law in the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on Nov. 21., 1960. Al established Fine and Staud Attorneys at Law with his colleague Louis Fine. Al tried cases in the State, Federal and Supreme Courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, focusing mostly on maritime and personal injury law. Although retired from the field of law in 2001; Fine & Staud LLC, still continues to flourish today under the guidance of Robert and David Fine.

In 1964, he wed the love of his life, Rosemarie Binni, and started his family in the town of Lansdowne, Pa. He participated in his community as the president of his neighborhood association for numerous years, helped begin the practice of yearly block parties and developed many close relationships with his neighbors that continued throughout his life.  

Al was a generous man and was a staunch supporter of those in need. Al contributed to many charities including Sts. Philip & James Parish, Catholic Charities, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, Sunday Morning Breakfast Mission, St. Agnes Day School, The Salvation Army, The American Red Cross, but especially the beloved Mount St. Joseph’s where his sisters, Sister Marjean Staud C.S.J. and Sister Martina Staud C.S.J., resided. Many special family memories of Palm Sunday Services were shared with the Staud family and the gracious Sisters of Mount St. Joseph, in Wheeling.

A faithful Catholic, Al taught CCD, was on the CYO Board and Parish Board at St. Philomena Parish in Lansdowne, Pa., where he was a parishioner for over 40 years. Upon moving to Exton, Pa., in 2002, he continued with his faith by attending daily and weekly Mass, as well as numerous Bible classes at Sts. Philip & James Parish. His strong knowledge of the Catholic faith, Bible and history typically led to lively debates during the many years of Wednesday morning or Monday evening Bible classes.

Family and friends will be received by Al's children and grandchildren on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. with a Memorial Mass immediately following at 11 a.m. at Sts. Philip and James Church, 107 N. Ship Road., Exton, Pa.
