Albert attended Trenton Catholic and was a member of United States Naval Reserves. He was a talented machinist/model maker who managed the machine shop at Sarnoff Corporation formerly known as RCA Labs.

He was an extremely skilled craftsman who could fix anything. He loved his German heritage, motorcycles, cars, studying genealogy and reading the comics with Snoopy and the Peanuts gang being his favorite. His greatest joy was being a father and a grandfather.
