Albert will be remembered by his wife of 67 years, Dorothy Gosney; his three sons, Lindell (Linda) Gosney, Littleton, Colo., Ronald Gosney, Centennial, Colo., and Anthony (Shirley) Gosney, East Moline; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and his three sisters-in-law, Bev, Novi and Evelyn Gosney. He was preceded in death by his parents; his three brothers, Arthur, Ernest and Eldon; his sister, Eunice; and his daughter-in-law, Carla Gosney.
He was very appreciative to the great care given to him by Tony and Shirley Gosney.
