Born in Canton, Texas, he served our country in the U.S. Army as a young adult stationed in Germany and stateside during the Korean War. After his service, he spent many years as a high school senior photographer, and a barber in the Fort Worth area. He also was an active member and usher at the First Presbyterian Church of Fort Worth. Albert lived the last 20 years next to the church at Trinity Terrace, where you could always find him playing cards, working puzzles, working in the little store, and tooling around on his scooter with a smile on his face.
He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Ruby Jean Horton; his parents, Wesley Calvin Horton and Annie Blonnie Barnard Horton; and 12 siblings.
