Obituary

CLIFTON PARK - Michael "Mickey" Albright, 74, took the red-eye home Saturday afternoon, Dec 14th at Albany Medical Center, surrounded by his loving family, after an extended illness.

Mickey was born in Troy, New York on Nov 8, 1945, to the late Dr. Fred and Katherine (Abare) Albright. He graduated from Troy High School in 1964. He went on to attend the University of Miami where he earned a Bachelors degree in Communications and was a proud member of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. He later earned a Masters degree in Computer Science from Union College in 1984, where he then taught Electrical Engineering and Computer Science as an Adjunct Professor.

Mickey was employed for many years at Channel 13, General Electric and Amsterdam Memorial Hospital. He also had owned and operated a software consulting business. He retired in 2012 from the New York State Department of Health where he was employed for six years as a software systems analyst.

After his retirement, his passion was restoring every nut and bolt of his 1940 Ford Deluxe, which he affectionately named “Ole Buelah.” He was the creator and former President of the Saratoga Region Antique Auto Club of America as well as the former Vice President of the Early Ford V-8 Club.

Friends and family will remember Mick for his bold humor, kind heart and ability to beat anyone at Jeopardy. With an obvious flare for storytelling, Mick had written several novels with new ideas always in the works - none more cherished than the “Bunny” series he created for his daughters when they were children.

In the last months of his life, Mickey had a vision of helping veterans, those coping with the difficulties of PTSD, handicap injuries and homelessness. He was in the initial process of organizing a helping hand project, known as IRON EAGLE, a drop-in, safe place for any troubled veteran, with an objective of fixing and restoring vehicles of all types. He hoped that the therapeutic value might help these veterans re-acclimate to civilian life. Friends will attempt to fulfill Mickey's dream.

Survivors include his loving wife of 45 years, Mary (Urkevich) Albright; proud daughters and sons-in-law, Jennifer (Mark Kaplowitz) Albright and Megan (Justin) Barkevich; his cherished grandchildren who were his greatest joy, Chase and Dylan Barkevich and Rosemarie and Maisie Kaplowitz; and his loving brother and sister-in-law, John and MaryJo Urkevich. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his twin brother, Fred Albright, Jr.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff at Albany Medical Center’s Cardiac Care Unit, who provided such wonderful care to Mickey over the past year, and especially to Dr. Alderisio, Dr. Belov, Tony, Jim, Peggy, Nancy, Gina, Roz and Hannah.

A gathering of friends will be held on Wednesday evening from 5-7 PM at the DeVito-Salvadore Funeral Home, 39 So. Main St., Mechanicville. A Funeral Service will follow at 7 PM.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, in memory of Michael "Mickey" Albright.
