Albert attended Central High school in Kansas City Missouri. He was well known by the name "Hookeye." and was loved by many. His home was the family "go to" spot for many family functions or just to hang out. Albert had a love for cooking. He was well known for his gumbo and greens. There was nothing that he could not cook. All those who came in contact with him walked away feeling loved as he touched so many people. He was definitely a people person and extremely family oriented. You could always find Albert sitting in the backroom on the sofa (his favorite spot) watching television.
Albert retired from the City of Kansas City after many years of service. He was united in marriage to his love, Debra Ann Thompson on February 14,1999. He truly loved his wife as he affectionately referred to her as "Mama" when talking to her.
