March 15, 1930 - April 19, 2021
Harold Albert, 91, of Sandpoint, ID passed away on April 19, 2021. Celebration of life will be held at 2pm June 12th at the Fraternal Order of Eagles, 1151 John Hudon Lane, Sandpoint, ID.
He was born on March 15, 1930 to Roy and Emily Albert of Potlach, ID. After completing school in Potlach, Harold served in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955 and was involved in the Korean War. Later, he married Joyce Emmerson on Feb. 12, 1956 at the First Presbyterian Church in Potlach. Recently, Harold and Joyce celebrated 65 years of marriage. They had 5 children, 18 grandchildren, 40 great grandchildren and 4 great great grandchildren.
Harold was employed by GTE Phone Company in Moscow, ID. His job moved them to Pierce, ID. for 7 years, then to Troy, ID. for 4 years and finally transferred to Sandpoint, ID. in 1976 where they made their home for the remainder of his life. He retired in 1992 after working for the telephone company for over 35 years.
After retirement, Harold and Joyce bought a motorhome and traveled south for the winters. In the summer months, they enjoyed camping and boating with their family and spending time with their many friends, children and grandchildren.
He was a determined woodworker, craftsman and was always fixing something. If anything needed repair, you knew to take it to “Mamps” (as most of his grandkids called him).
Harold was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was always there for anyone who needed help with his loving heart and helping hands. He also had a quick wit and ornery sense of humor. Even his smile was a little mischievous. He loved to make people laugh.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace “Dad”, “Mamps”, “Grandpa”, Great Papa”.
Harold is survived by his wife Joyce Albert of Sandpoint.
