Albert worked at Pioneer Electric and later with Carte Intl both in Winnipeg and Morden. When the Carte plant closed in Morden, Albert and Sandra moved to Teulon before settling back in Winnipeg where he worked for JR Stephenson until his retirement.
Albert was happiest at his cottage in Lac Du Bonnet. He was an outdoor person who could always be found mowing the grass or tinkering with a new project. Albert had an incredible work ethic and he took a lot of pride in his home.
