bullet  General Notes:

Albert was called "Grandpa Dudy". He had a small hunting cabin at lake St. Helen and chewed "Red Man" tobacco.

The pilot light went out on a very cold night and he called the gas company about 5 a.m. to report it. The gas man found him dead of a heart attack by the front door.

Albert had full military honors at his funeral since he had served in WWI as a private in the army. At the end of the graveside service the head of the honor guard saluted and said "So long buddy!". While on duty in Europe, he was gassed just as many other unfortunate soldiers. He would have died but a doctor replaced his esophogus with a silver tube. He always sounded a bit wheezy when he talked after that. He also liked to call himself Carl instead of Albert until some seargent put a stop to it for some reason.

Albert was registered in the WWI draft as Albert Carl Leary in 1917, and Carl Albert Leary in 1918.
