    Albert W. Kern, 97, passed away Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2009, at Allen Memorial Hospital, after a short illness.

    Albert was born in Yonkers, N.Y., March 13, 1912, to Albert and Retta (Klein) Kern. He grew up and went to school in Yonkers. He later met and married Loretta Trapp on Sept. 6, 1939 in Broadview Heights, Ohio.

    Albert was a private man and had a love for photography, and being with his family.

    He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 70 years, Loretta, on Sept. 20, 2009, and his parents.
