He began his career as a Steam Engineer and later became a Journeyman Electrician until his retirement in 2000. On July 12th, 1968 Albert married Gayle and together they raised their two daughters. Albert enjoyed curling at a younger age, hunting, fishing, camping, woodworking, and tinkering in his garage. He was a loving and dedicated husband, father and grandfather, always asking his grandkids about their bowling, golf, ringette, basketball or hockey games. He was a selfless man and would always lend a hand to anyone and everyone who needed it. Albert will be remembered for his wacky sense of humour, his boisterous laugh and his gift of gab.
