Albert was very close to his family, to his friends and his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. These past years Albert took care of his brothers Richard and Abel during their medical issues. Never leaving their side and making sure they had everything they needed.
Growing up with Albert as my older brother was always easy for us. He would pick on us constantly, but let anyone else even look at us funny, and Albert would be on our side, whatever came our way. Albert was good to his friends and his employers and their care and support during these last years, is very appreciated by all us. Albert worked hard but also enjoyed his life.
Albert was a true Pittsburgh Steeler fan and had a dream to get to Pennsylvania so he could see his team play!! Unfortunately, that dream did not come true, but he made sure that everything was done on Steeler game day so he would not be bother so he could watch his Steelers play!!! Win or Lose he would defend them in a hot second.
Albert also enjoyed getting together and eating and playing Loteria for money LOL! He was a “Rush” fan, and loved watching re-runs of “All in the Family”, The Jefferson’s” and the “Three Stooges”. Believe it or not his favorite of all time during the Easter Holiday was to watch the “Ten Commandments”.
There are many wonderful aspects of Albert’s life, and many ways he touched our lives. He will be remembered as a wonderful brother, a great friend, a crazy uncle, cousin and friendly face in town. In all these ways and more he made our lives richer and fuller. Now that he has passed away of course there is emptiness and pain, confusion and maybe even anger at death coming to a man of only 58 years of age. But in many ways, the gift of Albert’s life is still here with us. He lives on in our memories and stories, and in what all of us have become because of him. So, I encourage you to share-today, tomorrow and in the years to come- your memories and stories, and to share the pain of your lose as well. In this way we will keep the gift of Albert’s life alive.
