Albert provided service to me and my company for many years and I will always treasure the things that he taught me through his knowledge and his delightful spirit. I'll see you up there.

I was deeply saddened by Albert's death, not for Albert but for myself and everyone who knew him. Like the apostle Paul, Albert "fought the good fight and finished the race, He kept the faith. and now there is in store for him the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to him on that day". I am sad because so many of us have lost a great mentor, and a wonderful friend. A mutual friend said it best: "Albert Hyndshaw was the kind of person we should all strive to be." It was a blessing to know him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Betsy and Family, My deepest sympathy. All of us have lost a true friend, and Albert will be missed deeply. The obituary description perfectly describes Albert, "a man of strong work ethics, Christian faith, and family values". He lived that everyday and was such an example to the rest of us. My heart is broken, but I find comfort in memories of all the times Albert brightened my day. Sincerely, Elaine Cockcroft

I loved Albert and I love Betsy. They both are good friends. Albert was not only my friend but an excellent boss and mentor. I worked with him for many years. There are good memories of business trips with him and Joe. He introduced me to crab cakes in Maryland and ice cream in NC. Great business trips and a great teacher for insurance related issues, He was an awesome man and we will miss him.

As a co-worker of Albert, he always had a way with words. After receiving an office “Congratulations” card for the birth of my son, Albert simply wrote: “You should’ve got a cat”. Sure will miss his quirky jokes, routine ‘good mornings’, Excel spreadsheet questions, his plethora of Insurance knowledge, and always seeing his smiling face.

I am sorry to hear of Albert's passing. My memoies of Albert (Duff) go all the way back to our elementary school days in Tyrone, Pa. One of my best memories was of Albert giving me a ride home on the cross-bars of his bike when we were kids, probably around 10 years old, may have been after a cub scout meeting. My prayers are with the family.

Hello, I am so sorry to hear of this very sad news. Albert was such an inspiration. He was a very knowledgeable insurance professional, a great friend, and most importantly, a devout Christian. I have no doubt Albert has moved on to a better place. Betsy, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Very truly, Phil

I first knew Albert through United Ministries. Then he became one of my volunteers for the Poverty Simulation. He was often "Big Dave the Pawnbroker." My most special memory is when Albert said, "I want to pray for you but I don't know what to pray. What would you like for me to pray?" He was a special man.
Suzanne Johnson left a message on April 23, 2023:
As a fellow Tyroner, classmate and close friend of Albert, (Duff in high school), Duff accomplished much during those years. He was an Eagle Scout, self-taught photographer who developed his own photos, a certified lifeguard, and he played the trumpet with the quality of sound some said reminded them of Harry James. In his spare time he mowed lawns for the neighbors. His drive to succeed in whatever he pursued was so impressive. Truthfully, he showed great even temperedness. Once he offered me a bite of his sandwich and I ate the whole thing. Sometimes people cross our path without an impression, not so with Albert. Yes, my sincere thoughts and prayers go out to Betsy and Duff's siblings. I know they were all the more blessed to have had him in their lives and to an extent mine too.

I haven't know Albert long, but I instantly loved him. He reminded me of my grandfather in many ways, as I had told him. He was so genuine, thoughtful, and cheerful. He would stop my my office every morning I was there and ask me " So, how's Melanie doing?" My mornings just won't be the same without him. While he was in my life only briefly, he will be missed.
