In 1948, he came to the US for job opportunities. Albert served in the Korean War from October 20, 1950 to September 5, 1952. On December 14, 1954, he became an American citizen. After the Korean War, some relatives from both sides of the family played matchmaker and told Albert about a girl named Betty Li in Hong Kong. In 1955 he went to Hong Kong to marry Betty Li. After living in Seattle, Washington for a while, he came back to Houston, TX in 1956.

Albert worked as a butcher and cook. He for a time owned a grocery store and restaurant. He was going to name the grocery store after the first letters of Albert and Betty. However there was already an A & B Food Market so he named it B & A Food Market. He loved helping friends and relatives transition their lives in the US after coming over from China. He enjoyed going out to lunch with people and playing mah jong. He enjoyed gardening and watching sports.
