From the Mayor’s Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong From the Mayor’s Chair by Absecon Mayor John Armstrong Absecon lost one of its finest gentlemen last week with the passing of Al Bibeault who died at the full age of 96 years. I will be unable to attend his funeral so I wish to say a few things here on Al’s behalf.

Al was not native to this community. He was introduced to the Atlantic City area as a member of the Army Air Force during World War II. Assigned to handle the logistics of establishing a military hospital in Atlantic City hotels, Al made his way back here after the war to begin what became a long and successful career in the hospitality industry, managing the old Colton Manor in Atlantic City and later at what became Resorts Casino. Al was well-suited for that career. He was a big man, with a big smile and a big personality.
