Albert loved working and when he wasn’t he happily spent his free time outdoors mowing grass.  For more than thirty years before his retirement, Albert drove truck for the Ace Paper Company.  He also owned and operated Al’s Used Pallets in Newport, Michigan.

Albert loved going up north to Cummins, Michigan where he hunted deer.  He also loved filling his time in the Monroe area turtle trapping and duck and pheasant hunting. When Albert wasn’t enjoying the serenity of the outdoors, he took trips with his bride to try their hand at the Greektown Casino.  Al enjoyed watching sports rooting on his beloved Detroit Lions and Tigers or cheering on the next contestant for the Price is Right, but he refused to watch the Dr. Phil show.  Albert was a man that loved and cherished his family and friends.  He wasn’t one to spend frivolously on himself, choosing instead to put the needs of those around him first.
