Dick was born on September 14, 1931 in Madison to the late Richard and Amelia (nee Juve) Albert.

Dick worked to Pabst Brewing Company for 23 years and eventually retired from Johnson Controls in 1994. Dick was a master craftsman in all facets of life. He was a great story teller who loved to joke and sing. In earlier years, he sang in a barber shop quartet. At 82 years, he still carried a sweet, rich tenor voice we had the joy and privilege of listening to at all occasions. Everyone he met, he touched their lives in some way. He was so very rich in friends and greatly adored by his family.
