After he retired, he and Helen sold their house on Plateau Road and lived in the travel trailer for about a year before buying a Mobile Home at Honeymoon Mobile Home Park where they lived until 2001.
Albert and Helen loved to take walks on the beach and travel. They would pack up their van and camper and head out west, mainly to Colorado or Tennessee. They especially loved to go to Smokey Mt. National Park, Estes Park and Rocky Mt. National Park where they would do a lot of hiking and watching wildlife. Many times they would take all of us grand-children with them.
In 2001, Albert and Helen moved back to Laurel, Delaware. They continued to make many trips back to Florida and even rented a Mobile Home in Honeymoon Mobile Home Park for the winter.
After Helen’s passing, Albert moved back to Florida in 2014 where he bought a Mobile Home in Honeymoon Mobile Home Park. He loved going to the pool, playing bingo and entertaining the neighbors.
