Albert was known for his love of family. He never met a stranger and loved to talk with everyone he met. He was the first to head out to someone in need. He loved antiquing with his wife, collecting old lanterns, collectable cars, and John Deere items. His favorite pastimes included camping with family, sitting on his porch with his dogs, and enjoying cookouts with family around the pool.
Albert was a devoted son to his parents. Beloved by his brothers and sisters. He was a loving and sweet son, brother, husband, father, uncle, grandparent, and friend.
He was also especially known for his joking, silly manner and cutting up with everyone he could. His funny personality and the love he showed are all great memories now.
