Albert Donald

Albert Davis was a fun-loving jokester, a man who brightened the lives of everyone around him. Although Albert was never afraid to speak his mind, and sometimes known to be a bit bull-headed, this simply showed that he was his own person, acting according to his own principles. Kind-hearted and caring, Albert was lucky enough to live his life surrounded by a loving family and many friends.

Albert was born on August 31, 1951, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His proud parents were Richard E. and Marilyn R. (Tetzlaff) Davis. Albert was a middle child in a very large family – twelve children! He had five brothers (Gordon, Ronald, Charlie, William and Richard), and six sisters (Maryjane, Judy, Rosie, Linda, Susie, and Debbie). As a young boy, Albert enjoyed hunting and fishing.

After completing tenth grade, Albert started working for the Milwaukee Solvay Coke Foundry. In later years, he moved on to Mainard Steel. In his free time, Albert could often be spotted playing cards with friends, especially cribbage and poker.

When Albert was in his thirties, he met the woman who would be the love of his life, April. Albert and April made a loving home together, and they were soon blessed with a daughter, Laura. Their family also included April’s daughter, Michelle.

Fun-loving and outgoing, stubborn but kind-hearted, Albert was a loving husband, a devoted father and grandfather, and a loyal friend. He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by his many friends and family members.

Albert D. Davis died suddenly on April 7, 2012, following a heart attack. Albert’s family includes his wife, April; his daughter, Laura; his step-daughter, Michelle; his granddaughter, Alison; his step-grandson, Keith Jr.; his brothers, Gordon, Charlie, and William; his sisters, Maryjane, Judy, Linda, and Susie; other relatives, friends, and companion, Hercules. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Ronald and Richard; and his sisters, Rosie and Debbie.

Visitation will be on Thursday, April 12, at the Funeral Home, from 11:30 a.m. until the Funeral Service at 1:00 p.m. Interment will be at Woodlawn Cemetery Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The family was served by the Suminski LifeStory Funeral Homes.
