PLAINFIELD – David John Albold, 66, died Wednesday, March 2, 2011, at his home in Plainfield surrounded by his family and good friends.
He was born April 20, 1944, in Chicago. He grew up in Crystal Lake. He served in the U.S. Army from 1966-68. He received certificates in airplane airframe and powerplant from Lewis University and began his own business shortly after. It is through that business, AAP Aviation, that he formed many friendships.
In his time on Earth, he imparted on his family the love of airplanes and flying, hunting, and the joy found in a lazy afternoon motorcycle ride.
He is survived by his sons, Jarrett (Nicole) and Chad (Tasha); his grandchildren, Vincent, Marissa, Isabella and Blake; his brother, William; and his dear friend, Jenifer Swern.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Erna.
