Albert L. “Albie” Wales

July 18, 1953 - July 7, 2020

Albert L. “Albie” Wales, 66, of Altoona, passed away Tuesday, July 7, 2020, following an extended illness.  He was born in Altoona, son of the late Joseph R. and Paula M. (Mangia) Wales. 

He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Marcie (Harpster); son, William Wales of Altoona; two daughters: Erika Eiland of Jacksonville, Fla. and Colbe Norris of Altoona; brother, Joseph L. Wales of Altoona; sister, Sandra Zlupko (George)of Altoona; four grandchildren: TreyVon, Darrian, Brielle, and Vionna; sisters-in-law: Pamela Wales of Altoona and Jodie Macariola of Lancaster; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

Albie was a 1971 graduate of Altoona Area High School and went on to graduate from Taft University, California.  He retired as a car salesman from Dean Patterson after many years of service and had previously been the owner and operator of the Windjammer Bar.

Albie was of the Catholic faith.  He enjoyed sports, especially football, where he had a long career that included playing at Altoona Area High School, Taft University, and semi-pro football with the Central Pennsylvania Whitetail Bucks and the Chambersburg Cardinals. 

Albie enjoyed playing the lottery when he was “feeling lucky”, eating good food, and gathering with his family and many close friends.  He was a jovial, happy, “people-person” and will be sadly missed but always remembered!

For the past eight months, Albert was a resident of the Altoona Center for Nursing Care.  The family is greatly appreciative of all the wonderful care he received.

At this time, arrangements are private due to the health threat of Covid-19.  The family will plan a Celebration of Life for Albie in the future when gathering together will be safer.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions in memory of Albie be made to the Central PA Humane Society, 1837 E. Pleasant Valley Blvd., Altoona, PA 16602.

Arrangements are by The Stevens Mortuary, Inc., 1421 Eighth Ave. Altoona.
