According to his obituary in April 2, 1946 edition of the Elmira Signet, Albert died suddenly of a heart attack at the Link Belt Ltd. He was 70 years of age. He had just completed his work for the day when he suffered the attack. He had been engaged as a shipper at the foundry for 20 years. He attended Wesley United Church and was a member of the Legion, having served in the First Great War with the 118th Battalion for four years. He is survived by his wife, the former Elizabeth Wilson, whom he married at Leicester, England, in December, 1900, three daughters, Mrs. Ernest (Hilda) Evans and Mrs. Clifford (Ida) Vines, Elmira, and Mrs. Frank (Beatrice) Simons, Ajax, Ont., five grandchildren, one brother, John, and one foster brother, Herbert, both of Elmira and one sister in England.
