Al D. Stratton
Resident of Antioch
Formerly of Concord
Al Dean Stratton, 77, entered into rest at his daughter’s home on April 4, 2017 in Anderson, CA. He was born November 26, 1939 in Redding, CA to Albert and Lula Stratton. Al was raised in Pacheco and was a 1958 graduate of Pleasant Hill High School. He served in the National Guard for four years. He started his career with Diamond Building Material which became Rhodes and Jamieson, Lone Star and retired in 2000 from RMC in Concord.
He married Barbara Lynn Roberts in 1963. Al and Lyn were longtime residents of Concord where in 1986 they purchased and operated Baskin & Robin’s Ice Cream Parlor on Clayton Road, Concord. They moved to Antioch in 1997. Al was a generous man to a fault, very straight forward and larger the life!
