'Al the Barber': Downtown Los Altos legend dies at 90

Longtime Los Altos resident Alfred “Al the Barber” Galedrige, a fixture in downtown Los Altos for more than 60 years, died peacefully Sept. 8, surrounded by his family. Mr. Galedrige was 90.


Mr. Galedrige was born in Honolulu in 1926 to Peter and Rachel Galedrige. After witnessing the attack on Pearl Harbor, he joined the U.S. Navy at 17 years old. As a first class gunner’s mate on the LCI-466 gunboat, he dodged the assaults on Guam and Iwo Jima (“the day that I will never forget,” he said). He was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for exceptional valor and several other medals.
