Albert was born on Christmas Day 1944 in Colorado Springs, CO. His family moved to Rushville, NE where he grew up and attended school. He was a 1963 graduate of RHS where he enjoyed competing in bull riding and he won a championship his senior year.
Albert enlisted in the United States Navy where he spent 4 years sailing the world and was involved in the Viet Nam War. One of his ships was part of the rescue group that recovered one of the Apollo Spacecraft.
After the service he attended college in Sheridan, WY where he was part of the rodeo team. He went into surveying after college and ended up in the mountains of Colorado where he eventually bought and ran the J-J Bar and Grill for several years. Upon the death of his aunt he bought her gift shop (the La Chemere) in Manitou Springs, CO where he resided until his death.
Albert was preceded in death by his mother, father and stepfather as well as several aunts and uncles.
He is survived by his sister Judith Penn, brothers Arthur Baumeister and Alan Thomas as well as four nephews and two nieces and five great nephews and five great nieces.
