Al Frank was born Feb. 6, 1918, in Loveland to William and Mary Bath Frank. His father died in a farming accident when Al was 8 years old. His mother married Jacob Ehrlich and the family moved to a farm east of Fort Collins in 1928.
On Dec. 19, 1937, Albert married Ruth Deines at the German Congregational Church in Fort Collins.
After their marriage, the couple was in the farming and cattle feeding business for 28 years in the Fort Collins area. Their farming was interrupted for six years by a move to Oakland, Calif., where Albert worked for Owens-Illinois Glass factory. He also served one year in the Navy. In 1948 they returned to Fort Collins, where Albert was employed with Colorado State University Physical Plant for six years.
Albert was a lifelong member of Plymouth Congregational Church. He served on the church council and was actively involved in the construction of the church. He also was a member of the VFW and a past member of the American Legion. The greatest joy in Albertís life was his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Fishing, hunting, and gardening were Albertís hobbies during his retirement years. He also was an avid sports fan and enjoyed watching his grandchildren participate in athletic events.
