Albert grew up on the family farm where he worked both on the farm as well as at the coal strip mine south of Grassy Lake. After his career in farming, he and Lorraine moved to Taber in 1976 where he began his construction company ‘Albert Gross Construction Ltd.’. This was the path that he followed for the next five years. Following these ventures he explored many other avenues ranging from oil filter cleaning to metal recycling.
He was never a man that could sit idly for too long. He enjoyed spending his time building, welding and wood working. Albert was also a connoisseur of a variety of shopping adventures, most specifically garage sales, the second hand store and the dump. We are all benefactors of many of his treasure finds and projects.
Albert loved hunting, construction and hobby work. His skilled hands were constantly busy re-furbishing and re-finishing many of his treasure finds so that his grandchildren were never without bikes, scooters, fishing rods, play equipment, strollers, wagons and so much more.
