Albrecht of the 116th Battalion. "He straightened me out when I came back from (Vietnam) … I listened to his nightmares and he listened to mine," Wellheiser said, wearing his friend's name on his jacket on Sunday in remembrance. metronews.ca/news/kitchener/436991/local-veterans-young-and-old-remembered-sunday/ _______________ Louis was assessment commissioner for the City of Kitchener when he married Lillian Wellheiser in 1927. 021709-27 Louis John Albrecht, 29, Assessment Commissioner, res. 42 Waterloo St. Kitchener, b.
