Upon returning home after his last tour of duty he worked in construction, he also worked with his brother Lester in his Hines Refrigeration and Heating business.
Albert met his wife Dyanne while she was walking down the road. He was determined to get her attention and he pursued her like a hawk until he caught her. Albert will be remembered for his kindness and soft heart. He was a strong soldier but he had a gentle spirit towards people. Albert loved his children and would do whatever he could to help them.
Albert loved fast cars and enjoyed having a good time. In his youth he loved baseball and was a great pitcher. Albert loved being outside on his lawn mower cutting “his own grass”. He loved to fix things, he would tinker around outside always doing something. He took pride in “protecting” his property just like the military soldier he was.
