Albert was the youngest of three children. As a child he liked to watch Ninja Turtles cartoons, Thunder Cats, and played with G.I. Joe figures.

He liked a variety of music. The Ramones, Green Day, Lonely boys and Johnny Cash are a few of his favorite artist. His favorite movies were action packed and scary movies. The Punisher, Shawn of the dead, the Hills have eyes are just a few of his favorite movies. Family guy, Reno 911, Courage the Cowardly Dog (cartoon), Dog the Bounty Hunter and Orange County Choppers.

Albert was a young man after God’s heart. He loved the Lord and wasn’t ashamed to show his love for Christ. He was well liked by anyone he came across. At a very young age I could see where he was heading. He always talked about joining the military; he believed he could make a difference. I am very proud of my son; he died doing what he loved.

Albert was born on March 9, 1984 and was killed in action on March 13, 2007 in Baghdad
