Longtime resident Albert Nelson Deary , 83, died Sept. 7, 2004, at his home after a battle with malignant mesothelioma. His family wrote that his cancer was caused by asbestos in the workplace. As he requested, no service was held.
Mr. Deary was born Oct. 16, 1920, in Holyoke, Mass., to Homer and Alma (Brogle) Deary . He met his wife, Ruth Schorling, in Springfield, Mass., in early 1941 and they married in December of that year. Mr. Deary served in the U.S. Army in World War II from 1942 to 1945 in the European Theater of Operations. In 1948, he and his wife drove from Massachusetts over the Alaska Highway to Anchorage in the territory of Alaska and had lived here ever since. He was employed at the Alaska Railroad from 1948 to 1954 and the Fort Richardson Power Plant from 1954 to 1975.
He is survived by his wife of 62 years, his daughter, Charlotte of Anchorage, and son, Forrest of the Lower 48. He was preceded in death by his sisters, Dorothy Moat and Ester Fogarty, and his daughter, Christine. His final resting place is in the columbarium of Angelus Memorial Park.
