He was a prominent business owner of Western Van & Storage Company, Adriana International Movers Inc., and Overseas Relocation Services. Albert had the special gift of remembering people, places and events. He shared these memories through engaging storytelling. Our family's 'Godfather' will be forever missed. ~Broken Chain~ 'We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.' Funeral mass will be celebrated Saturday, June 4 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Barbara Parish Chapel in Black Diamond. A reception will follow with committal at Calvary Cemetery in Seattle. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Boys Town or a local Food Bank. Please visit the online Guest Book at
