Albert E. Romney, Jr.

September 30, 1938  -  March 5, 2024

It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Albert E. Romney Jr., a devoted husband, loving father, and esteemed member of the Freemasons. Albert was born on September 30, 1938, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, New York. He attended Suffern High School, where he not only excelled academically but also developed a passion for carpentry and enjoyed playing football for the Mounties, graduating with the class of 1956.


Known affectionately as "Sonny," Albert embarked on a journey of service and adventure when he joined the Navy in 1956 during the Cold War. He was assigned to a Naval Cruiser in the Mediterranean and had the opportunity to explore different parts of the world. Albert's dedication and leadership skills led him to become an officer during his time in the Navy. He served his country with honor until his honorable discharge in 1959. Albert remained committed to his service by joining the Naval Reserves, where he continued to contribute until 1962.


Following his service in the Navy, Albert began a new chapter of his life in 1963 when he joined the General Motors Tarrytown assembly plant as a carpenter. It was during this time that he met the love of his life, Joyce Marie Anderson. On November 22, 1964, they exchanged vows at St. Anastasia Church in Teaneck, New Jersey, marking the beginning of a beautiful partnership.


Albert had a deep love for spending his afternoons and weekends fishing or embarking on thrilling adventures with his motorcycle club, riding his beloved Harley Davidson. He had a lifelong passion for cars and always owned a Corvette. Albert and Joyce would often be seen cruising with the top down, heading to City Island, New York, to savor delicious seafood and create cherished memories together.


The greatest joy in Albert's life was his two sons, Brian E. Romney, born on June 17, 1966, and Terrence A. Romney, born on June 2, 1969. After the birth of his second son, Albert pursued higher education at Dominican College in Orangeburgh, New York, where he earned his bachelor's degree. Inspired by a desire for personal growth and service, Albert dedicated his life to the Freemasons, becoming a member of Lodge 79. This achievement held immense significance for him, and he wholeheartedly embraced the principles of the Freemasons. Albert achieved various Freemason degrees and eventually became a Worshipful Master, a testament to his unwavering dedication.


As a father, Albert was a shining example of peace, reasoning, love, care, and respect. He instilled these values within his sons, always leading by example and never uttering a curse word in their presence. Albert's commitment to his family was unwavering, and he cherished every moment spent with them.


After retiring from General Motors Tarrytown plant on March 1, 1993, Albert embarked on a new venture, starting his own Handyman business. He continued to utilize his exceptional carpentry skills to help others and make a positive impact in the lives of those he served. Throughout his retirement, Albert remained a dedicated husband, caring for his beloved wife until the day he departed from this earth.


Albert E. Romney Jr. is survived by his loving wife, Joyce M. Romney, and his son, Terrence A. Romney. His memory will forever be cherished, and his legacy will never be forgotten. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for his military service, unwavering dedication, boundless love, and invaluable wisdom.
