There were actually 98 candles lit and ready for the birthday boy to make his wish. A. J. Canfil celebrated his 98th birthday at Alpine’s Al Pancho’s restaurant with his family, his son and his family which included, his grandson and his family. This would make four generations ringing in this gentleman’s 98th year on this earth! Happy 98th birthday A. J. ! We hope that it is a great one!
