Al was born March 26, 1943 in Dallas, Texas son of the late Duron A. and Bessie (Smith) Dainwood. He moved to Connecticut in July to be near his sister.

In 1971, Al moved to Houston, where he continued his career as a guitarist and vocalist, developing a loyal following for his sensitive baritone interpretations of The Great American Songbook.

A special favorite was “Here’s that Rainy Day”, by Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Burke. Mr. Dainwood’s reputation extended from the East Coast to the Isle of Wight.

He is survived by his sister, Sandra Wagenfeld, of Weston; a daughter, Tiffanee Cook; a niece, Valerie Wagenfeld, of California, cousins Gerald, Hansel and Joey Dykema of Houston, and additional cousins, Phyllis McConnell, Jane Stephens and Bill McKnight.

A private burial was held in Westport. The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, those who wish may send memorial contributions to The Rosenthal Hospice Residence, 100 Shelburne Road Stamford, CT 06902
