Albert loved his friends, had a great sense of humour and such a charmer. His passions were volunteering, playing horseshoes, working at the club, gardening, constructing birdhouses and yard ornaments and any challenges that came before him. Let’s not forget his passion for a new car every 2 years.

He will be missed by his family and friends. As per his request there will be no service. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses that cared for Albert while in hospital.
