My grandfather, Albert Owens, died on Dec. 3, 2012, a month before his 87th birthday, at Calvert Memorial Hospital.
As a Marine, he served in the Pacific during World War II. He survived a snake bite to the eye while in Okinawa. He had six kids, and spent much of his life working in construction. The eldest of six children, he outlived two siblings, and his son, Michael Owens. He was married twice, and a ‘ladies’ man’ up until the day he died. He enjoyed singing, usually Hank Williams, and cracking jokes that you’d expect out of an ole’ Tennessee boy. He will be missed.
Albert Owens, January 3, 1926 – December 3, 2012
