A private graveside service will be held Tuesday, August 30, 2011 at Floral Hills Cemetery in Lynnwood, with a reception immediately following.
Mr. Albrecht was born October 30, 1921 in Cando, North Dakota, to Martha Broeckel.
He served in the U.S. Army during WWII, and, upon discharge, settled in the Seattle area with his bride Phyllis.
Mr. Albrecht provided for his family by working for Westinghouse for many years, and eventually became the owner/manager of an appliance service company in Everett. He and Phyllis sold the business and retired in 1995.
