Albert met Virginia Bowermaster at Savannah School, a one-room schoolhouse, in Dickinson Township. They became an inseparable couple who were married in 1950.
Farming was always an important part of his life. He was raised on a dairy farm and later worked his own hundred-acre farm in his spare time. Albert worked at Roadway Express until he retired. After his retirement he continued to work for Harrisburg Truck Body for another 13 years.
Albert joined the First E.U.B. Church in Carlisle as a child and was a life-long member of the congregation that is now Carlisle United Methodist Church. He later faithfully attended church services at Cumberland Crossings Retirement Community.
He leaves behind many friends and extended family. Buzz always had a big smile and friendly conversation for everyone. His sense of humor, kindness and generosity will be missed by those who knew and loved him.
