Obituary

Alfred Phillip Pfeufer passed away May 13th in Virginia Beach.

He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and everyone’s favorite barber. Al attended the Atlas Barber Academy in NYC and he opened his first barber shop at age 21 in Dumont, New Jersey called “Al’s Barber Shop”. As a young businessman, he knew precisely how many hair cuts he needed to do per day to make his rent and quickly made his namesake shop a success. In 1982, Al and his wife, Lois moved from Bergen County, New Jersey to Sandbridge, Virginia and opened a new salon together in Virginia Beach, named “A&L Hair Garden. The Hair Garden has brought joy to him and his many customers for nearly 40 years. He was notable for his talents behind the chair and his comically strong opinions. You may have thought you knew what hair cut you wanted before coming in to see Al, but he had no problem looking you up and down and telling you what you needed.

Al enjoyed being beside Lois, his wife and companion, at work and in life. A pride and joy in his life was the secret garden he built and planted around their home which was once complete with carrier pigeons. He also loved riding his bicycle and staying active. He loved his family. All of those who knew Al, will remember him for brightening up every room with his big laugh, quick wit, and humorous observations.

Al is survived by his wife Lois, his three children (Anne, Phil, and Eric), 7 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. And of course, the favorite child, his dog Trixie.

The Memorial Mass will be held on Wednesday May 19th at 4pm at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church. Followed by a Celebration of his life at Baja Restaurant in Sandbridge.

Memorial donations / in lieu of flowers may be made to “Catholic Charities of Eastern Virginia”

I will miss seeing you Al when I come in to A & L Hair Garden! You always had a smile and a tease for me and for all your customers. We first met at a “cutathon” put on by the Folk Group Choir at St. Nicholas in 1985. We were new to Virginia Beach and to the parish but I knew exactly where to go for a trim after that event! My deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers to Lois, Anne, Eric, and Phil, and to all who worked beside Al for so many years. You were a big “grumpy bear” with a marshmallow heart, and will be hugely missed.

I would like to send my thoughts and prayers out to all of Al's family. I started going to Al when I was 13 years old, 39 years ago when the shop was on South Plaza Trail, beside the old Hardee's. I really enjoyed the comeradity I felt with him , Ann, and his staff over the years. He had 2 names he called me over the years, when I was younger and not much money I was " El Cheapo" , then I was " Motor Mouth". He would give it to me and I would give it back to him, like 2 good buddies do. I' m gonna truly miss that chance to catch up with what's happening with some of my Local Plazoo Boys, as Al would throw me the scoop on some of my friends' lives through the years. Keep telling it like it is My Friend.

No one else cuts my hair but A&L Hair Garden. I think my family started there back when the shop was on Rosemont Rd. Al was always very kind to me, I think, because he knew I was shy. And so very kind to my mother, Elizabeth Schaarschmidt, who loved his quick wit and laugh. He will be missed. Much love to his family! - Aileen Schaarschmidt Adams

I started going to A&L Hair Garden shortly after they opened 39 years ago...I was 21! I was naive to Al's quick wit and jokes, but he immediately started suggesting different hair dyes and cuts to me. I did not dye my hair back then. Over the years he would tease me about staying blonde and in fashion. His chair was a revolving door of men needing cuts, and he was amazing with kids who came for first haircuts! He was sooo talented! He was a big teddy bear with an enormous heart. I will miss his smartass comments. Can not imagine him not being there any more. Praying for strength for Lois, Anne, Georgina, and Lorraine who worked with him every day and for his family and MANY friends! Al will surely be missed!!! Love, Liana Schaarschmidt Peebles, and Mike and Jesse Peebles
