My sympathy to the family. Mr. Albritton set an example for what a good man can do. He was a loyal American, a fine Texan, and a great Aggie.

Mr. Albritton was an icon in Bryan when I was growing up. Mrs. Albritton wrote a recommendation for me to a sorority at the University of Texas. Ford III was in my class and I have the fondest memories of Ford, Bobby, John and Sally. We never want to lose the ones that shaped our memories and I want to extend my sincerest sympathies to Mrs. Albritton, her children and grandchildren.

Mrs. Albritton, John and family, I am very sorry to hear about Mr. Albritton. I have some very fond memories of running all over the Rosemary house with John when we were kids and Mr. and Mrs. Albritton were always very patient hosts. Those were great, simpler times.

Like my own dad, Mr. Albritton was from that truly great generation that understood leadership, sacrifice and commitment to the greater good. A very special man. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Sincerely, Blaine Hart.

Getting to meet and visit with Ford was a highlight for our family… without a doubt, you knew you were in the presence of a great man… a hero to our country, the community, to A&M, and most of all, to his family. Our love and prayers are lifted up for his precious family!

I had the pleasure of visiting with Mr. Albritton in 2013 at his home. My Father was his VP of Sales at Alenco prior to its sale to Redmond Industries. Mr. Albritton was generous with his time and we spoke of many things. His love
for Texas A&M and his business accomplishments are of the highest order.
What he did with his volunteerism and giving back is something we should all strive to achieve. Mr. Albritton loved to hand out $ 2.00 bills and I still have the one he gave me in 1967. My condolences to his family.

I had the good fortune to become associated with Alenco upon my graduation from Texas A&M. Those few years in Mr. Albritton's presence helped mold my business ideas and approaches in the forming years of my business career. He was a great leader and I very much admired him.

This is a sad day and I offer my prayers and condolences to his family.
