Albert came to Florida in 1958 from Cincinnati, Ohio after serving his country in the United States Air Force as an honorably discharged veteran. He then began a new career working with the South Florida Water Management District for thirty years and retired as the Director of Building Services. Albert loved vacationing in the Blue Ridge Mountains and going to Disney World, but most of all spending his time with his grandchildren. He also enjoyed running the roads with ?Mimi?. One of Albert?s greatest joys was worshipping his ?Lord and Saviour? at Trinity Church International in Lake Worth, Florida. He will be forever loved by his wife of fifty three years, Thyra A. ?Mimi? Dykes; his two children, Linda Ventry and her husband, Kyle of Wellington, FL, Lynn Wells and her husband, David of Wellington, FL; his sister, Alta Charlene Dykes-Ingram of Tampa, FL; his brother-in-law, Ira Mock of West Palm Beach, FL; and his two sisters-in-law, Marie Mock of West Palm Beach, FL and Zoe Mock of Lexington, S.C.; his six grandchildren, ?KJ?
