 During WWII, Albert flew Martin B26 bombers in North Africa and Europe. After the war he moved to Santa Rosa with his wife June.
 Albert remained an active pilot for years, helping put on the Sonoma County Air Shows for several years and was chairman of the airport advisory committee when the existing tower was built.
