I took guitar lessons in OC 79-80 with Al Manfredi Jr. I was a kid in high school. I've tried to look him up throughout the years. So sorry to hear he passed and wasn't there for you Aleksander. (My Dad was absent as well.) I have fond memories of my time spent with Al jr. He lent me his 12 string after my guitar was stolen. I still remember the major scales he taught me. I later took the guitar back up and got to live out my rock star dreams. I'm sorry I never got to tell him how much his kindness and instruction meant to me.
