Drechsler, Albert C. (Al)* - Lorain  
Albert (Al) C. Drechsler died peacefully at Vista del Monte Retirement Community on April 14, 2016. He was born February 23, 1920 in Brownhelm Township (Amherst), Ohio to Michael and Katherine Drechsler. He graduated from Brownhelm High School, and earned a B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Case Institute of Technology in Cleveland, Ohio. He was a member of Phi Kappa Tau social fraternity, and Sigma Xi National Honor Society. He was licensed as a professional engineer in the state of Ohio. Al married Dorothea Angersbach in 1949. They had three children, Deborah, Sally, and William. Al worked for General Motors (GM) for 40 years. He worked at the Cleveland Diesel Engine Division for 27 years, and the Cadillac Motor Car Division – Cleveland Tank Plant for two years, In Cleveland, he worked his way up the ladder to Divisional Master Mechanic where he designed and built custom machines and tooling to machine large custom and production parts such as 2500 hp diesel engines used in large ships and trains. At Cleveland Diesel he earned 2 patents, one for an automatic flame cutting machine to cut 24 air intake parts on eight-and-a-half inch diameter bore steel cylinder liners, two at a time. The other was on a contour controlled planer for machining helical, three lobed blower rotors used in Roots-type blowers to provide scavenging air on the large two cycle diesel engines and vapor compressor units used on shipboard for distilling sea water into potable water. In 1964 Al moved his family to Santa Barbara where he was transferred to the Defense Systems Division of General Motors (later becoming Delco Electronics). During early years at Delco he became the Superintendent of the Model Shop and worked on programs such as the Lunar Roving Vehicle for NASA. He designed the weaving loom that was used to make the Rover's wire wheels that ultimately rolled on the moon's surface, and tooled up to build the Rover's suspension arms from single pieces when early attempts at welding aluminum failed. He later worked in the packaging and Process Engineering group. After retirement from GM, he spent three and a half years as a Delco contract employee in Santa Barbara and in Culpeper, VA. During his career, one of Al's favorite assignments took him to Argentina in 1972 where he surveyed potential diesel locomotive engine manufacturing facilities for the GM Electromotive Division. Al was an active member of St. Mark United Methodist Church. Over the years he served on the Board of Trustees, sang in the choir, and was a youth group leader. During retirement, he was a key member of the Delco Retirees Toy Project that made wooden toys for the Unity Shop to distribute at Christmas and year around. He also indulged his interests in wood and metalworking for his own enjoyment, and produced furniture, keepsakes, as well as tools and other articles for himself and family members. Al played an active role in rebuilding their home after it was burned to ashes by the Painted Cave fire and shortly thereafter helped his son and daughter in law in the construction of their home. He enjoyed going to his granddaughter's track and cross country races, having picnics, and going on local day events with family and friends as well as cultural activities and concerts both locally and in L.A. with daughter Deborah. Al and Dorothea enjoyed family tent camping in the early Santa Barbara years, and in later years fishing trips with Bill and sightseeing trips with Deborah and Sally. Al enjoyed gardening, and he tended a large vegetable garden and a 28 tree fruit orchard until he and Dorothea moved to Vista del Monte in 2011. Al will always be remembered for spending summers in the orchard and making sure everybody ate some fruit at the prime time. Al sang in the Vista Voices choir and developed many heartfelt friends at Vista. His wife, Dorothea, predeceased him in 2013. He is survived by his children Deborah Drechsler of Davis, CA, Sally Cumming (Earl) of Mandeville, LA, and William Drechsler (Jennifer) of Santa Barbara. He is also survived by five granddaughters, Christine, Sarah and Rebecca Cumming (Sally), and Krista and Kelley Drechsler (William), and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at Vista Del Monte with private interment. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Unity Toymakers of Santa Barbara at www.unityshop.org or 805-979-9511.
