Albert's passion was racing horses with his sons and watching the Kentucky Derby every year at his home with his family. In his early years he played hockey with the St Philips Ranger's and followed hockey till his passing. Every year he watched the world juniors and playoffs. Albert enjoyed watching fastball and his love of fastball was passed onto his baby girl Holly who excelled and won many tournaments and made our dad very proud. During his retirement he became a referee and enjoyed watching all his grandchildren and great grandchildren playing sports. Albert was proud of all his babies that played in any sports and always found time to support each one of them. He enjoyed sports immensely and won the "TOP FAN" award many times.
Albert was a humble, caring person that always had a smile on his face, and showed the love and dedication for his family by supporting all events diligently.
