Kristen and I were sad to learn of Albert’s passing. We met Albert several times at the Wilhelmy’s family events that we were fortunate enough to attend. What a wonderful, warm and upbeat person Albert was. We always enjoyed catching up with Albert and spending time with him. He will be missed. We send warm thoughts to the family during this difficult time. Rest In Peace Albert.

I was sad to learn of Albert's death. We knew each other when I was Exec Asst of the President of Notre Dame College. His beautiful arrangements helped make our events memorable. Your family are in my thoughts.

Cheers to the life your father lived and the legacy he left. I was blessed to know your mom and dad and experience first hand their love story that was like a fairy-tale. I will always be grateful for the Xmas parties and the summer gatherings that bonded our families when we were young. Your dad was so proud of his family and his love for you will fill your hearts as you cherish the memories you built together until you see each other again. May the Lord comfort you and may you take joy in knowing your dad is amongst the greatest.

Ohhh, Mary Jo.... Honey, I'm so sorry for the loss of your big brother, Albert. In my previously entered Memorial Message, I gave my sympathies to David, and left you out! (My apologies.) It is so heartbreaking to lose a brother... I lost my younger brother, David Reynolds, 5 years ago. Your brother, Albert, knew my dad, Billy Reynolds... from many Rocky River sports. In fact, I believe my dad coached both of your brothers in Little League & in elementary school football, as well as reffed many RRHS football & basketball games that both Al & Dave played in, while you and I cheered, did poms, and flags! How blessed were WE to be daughters & sisters in such legendary Rocky River families, yes? You, Dave, and all of your famiy are in my heartfelt prayers. As for Albert... what a wonderful angel he will make.

Hugs & Love,
Maureen Reynolds-MacGregor

God Bless You, Al. You were a memorable RRHS alum, and were always our family's go-to for flowers. Such artistry! My last memory is when I contacted you from Florida, just a few years ago, to order an artistic & unique arrangement for the funeral of fellow Rocky River High School classmate, Timothy Reagan. Many of us from the RRHS Class of 1972 (David Wilhelmy's class, too), pitched in for those flowers from all over the country. You created a stunning arrangement, and gave us a discounted price so that we also could give a donation in Tim's name to the Psoriatic Arthritis Association. Al Wilhelmy ~ You were a true "Riverite," and community supporter, always! David Wilhelmy ~ I am so sorry for the loss of your big brother, Al. God is building His Greatest Army for The Last Days... I am sure Al is already in Heavenly Training.

Prayers & Love,
Maureen Reynolds-MacGregor

Albert was big hearted and giving to others, including me, for which I am grateful. He influenced my life as a coach, mentor and friend. Over the last forty years we shared countless laughs and so many fun times. His memory will always bring a smile and the thought of a life well lived.
