Obituary for Vincent J. Albo

Vincent J. Albo, 84, of Seltzer, passed away on Sunday morning at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Schuylkill E. Norwegian Street, Pottsville.

Born in Pottsville, on May 26, 1939, he was the son of the late Vincent M. and Rose (Tucci) Albo.

Vince was a member of St. John the Baptist R.C.C., Pottsville.

He was a 1957 graduate of Pottsville High School.

Throughout the years he also owned Vince's Chevron Service, assisted at Lord Funeral Home, Inc., was a driver for Omega Labs and Bob Weaver, and was a security guard at the former Good Samaritan Hospital, Pottsville.

Vince enjoyed staying active by attending his high school breakfast group, collecting record albums, and spending time with his family. He was a life member of Phoenix Fire Company, DAV and the AMVETS.

Vince loved his cars and often boasted that he owned several hundred over his lifetime. The one thing he loved more than cars was his family and he was always there for us whenever we needed him.
