Arthur F. Albert
(12-26-1929 - 01-17-2018)

Arthur F. Albert, age 88, of Elgin passed away on January 17, 2018 surrounded by his family. He was born in Chicago on December 26, 1929 to the late Bernard and Harriet Albert. He was married to Barbara (nee Stevens) on April 19,1958 until her passing in 1965. On July 7, 1977 he married Rebecca (nee Bohlin) Albert. Arthur worked at Marshall Field’s as a men’s wear buyer for over 35 years, and could spot a 44-long at 50 paces. He enjoyed frozen coffee cake, shaggy dog jokes, opera and classical music. A life-long learner and history buff, he held court on a wide range of topics, such as never make it too easy for someone to take your money, and when driving watch out for red cars (imagine his delight upon learning of an accident between two of them!). He was a renaissance man who loved his family. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his Children: Mark (Joan), Grant (Marlena), Kristin, Karina (John) Albert-Shepard; grandchildren: Amanda, Tyler, Laura, Eden, Hannah, Bethany, Cayna; great grandchildren: Violet, Harold, Marilyn. He is preceded in death by a sister, Marlene. A service celebrating his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Elgin Community Crisis Center.
Lastly dear reader, do good works and make your best effort always.
