Grandpa Albert was truly an Amazing man. He had a unique Love for life and the beautiful things around him. He loved to work on his garden and enjoyed random visits from family memebers on a regular. I remember sitting outside with him listening to him tell stories about grandma Cora and working as a young boy and our ancestory. I am Blessed to have had these moments with my great grandfather and thankful my sons had the opportunity to create memories with him as well. The Good Lord Truly blessed him with many generations nearly 90 grandchildren in all is an amazing gift from God, all thanks to him and grandma Cora for creating a big beautiful family. My heart is at ease knowing they are reunited together both happy and full of peace with our Glorious Father in his kingdom of heaven.

I don't know where to begin, my great grandfather was the most loving and generous person I've ever known. He always put his family first and was sure to make all of his guests feel welcome. My favorite memories of my grandpa will always be the way he treated my kids. Every morning we would go to visit him and he was always sure to have cookies, popsicles or lollipops for them. Grandpa sure knew how to spoil those kids. I loved when he would ask me to bake him his favorite treats. He always knew exactly what he wanted. I will hold tightly to every memory that we have shared. My grandpa is one of a kind. I will not go a day without thinking about him.

I really believe that he touched so many lives with his gentleness & kind spirit.
My life has forever been impacted by being his eldest grandaughter. He taught me so many things, one of the most important was to be able to sit outside & quietly enjoy the beauty all around us. He had such a positive attitude. He gave us a lesson in endurance. He rarely complained. He was a hard worker & displayed an amazing work ethic throughout his life. Grandpa Albert will be missed . He will also be cherished & loved forever ! God be with him....

Albert passed away Saturday morning at 1:45am. The Lord was merciful, he did not suffer and passed quietly. He was 94. A good, hard working man that loved his family and his life. He was a wonderful father in-law to me and I will miss him terribly. We shared many conversations together. He always made sure that Cora brought fresh HOT sauce and avocados home to me and grapes for Tawny. Cora will miss her dad and Tuesday breakfast buddy. He would save half his breakfast for his best buddy Daisy.
God bless you Al and thanks for all the memories we made together.---
