Albert enjoyed fishing and shooting. He was a “fixer” and enjoyed spending time figuring out problems with vehicles and electronics. He was a history enthusiast, particularly about World War II. He was a political enthusiast as well. But mostly, he enjoyed time with his wife, his children and his countless friends.
