Albert Brandl, age 89, of Reinbeck/Grundy Center, passed away late Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at Parkview Manor Nursing Home in Reinbeck. He was born in Carroll County, Iowa on May 5, 1925 to Fred and Adelheid Brandl.
Upon graduation from high school, Albert entered the military, serving in the Air Force. While in the Air Force, Albert was stationed in Germany during the Korean War, and worked as an airplane mechanic. This gave him the desire to always tinker with things around the house. Albert met and married the love of his life Helen McMaster. In almost 60 years of marriage, there was hardly a cross word between the two. Albert's family will always remember him as a modest, yet hard working and determined man. Albert was a good man and great husband and father. He enjoyed playing pool, bowling and shuffle board.
Albert is survived by his wife Helen; children Cathy (Bruce) Koopman, Joan (Bob) Palashewski, Tom Brandl, and Mark Brandl. He is also survived by 5 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Albert was preceded in death by his parents, 4 siblings, and son Todd Brandl.
Services were held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 and St. Gabriel Catholic Church, 21275 U Ave, Reinbeck. A private family burial will take place at a later date. Online condolences may be left at www.abelsfuneralhomes.com
