He was employed at Delco Remy Anderson, Security Division, where he became chief of investigations. In 1987, following 35 years of service, he retired from Delco Remy. Albert was instrumental in the development of the Central Indiana Law Enforcement Association.

In his later years, Albert with his Marjorie, spent winters in Palm Harbor, Fla., on Tarpon Lake. Browsing around the lake in the pontoon and evenings with friends making music created joyful memories.
