He attended school in Beulah until grade 8 and high school in Birtle.
Albert led an active life working for CNR for 15 years, drove a semi for Bicknell’s for 5 years and ended his working career with Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation Birtle yard for 21 years, retiring in 2007. He played ball for the Beulah Fastball Club and hockey with the Birtle Bruins and Birtle Old Puckers. Over the years he enjoyed snowmobiling , camping and golfing. As his health began to fail his passion was meeting with the coffee crew daily where the teasing was a constant. He was a Habs fan, a Jets fan and a Blue Jays fan.
