Albert will be sorely missed by family and friends. He loved living and enjoying all those around him. His family was his number one priority and he was loved in return by all those who had the privilege of knowing him

Dear Glick and Johnson Families I am truly very sorry for your loss. Albert was the “last of the Mohicans” as he told me recently. Having spent a good part of my business career with him he continued to impress me on how much he cared for people both our customers and associates. I continued to touch base with him after the Glick Furniture era and he always showed an interest how my family was doing. He will be terribly missed by me. “May his memory be for a blessing “.
