Albert Scartz

Albert C. Scartz, 89, of Tamarac, Fla., died peacefully at his home with family and friends at his side Saturday (Jan. 12, 2013).

Albert was born Jan. 7, 1924, near Chiefton, to Italian immigrant parents James and Caroline Scartz.

Albert was the youngest in a family of 12 children. The names of his siblings who all preceded him in death are: Mary, Anna, Martha, Harold, Francis, Carl, Julia, Thelma, Dominick, Virginia and Eugene.

Albert grew up in Watson and graduated from West Fairmont High School in 1942. Albert joined the Army in 1943 at the age of 19. After the war, he went to college on the G.I. bill, earning degrees at Fairmont State at West Virginia University and a doctorate in education at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Albert taught industrial arts at public schools in Prince William and Arlington counties. After retiring, he and his wife traveled throughout the world learning about other cultures and lifestyles. Albert continued to “teach” or share his knowledge and experiences with family and close friends by scouring newspaper articles that he thought were interesting. Most members of our large extended family received newspaper clippings from time to time complete with notations with the important parts underlined.

Albert was a compassionate and progressive person who believed that it is each generation’s responsibility to concentrate on improving the next generation. He will be missed by all of us, but he left us in a better place and provided us with a good example of how we should try to live our lives.

Albert is survived by his wife and best friend of 68 years, Mayetta; and a grateful son, Larry and his wife Rita. He has four surviving grandchildren, Larry “Buddy” and wife Barbara, Thomas, Jennifer and her husband Craig, and Tiffany and her husband David. Daniel Scartz preceded him in death in 2006. He also has six great-grandchildren, Katie and her husband Nick, Jennifer, Brittany, Neil “Tre”, Caroline and Grace.

The family requests that any expression of sympathy be a donation to a charity of your choice.

A time of remembrance and memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at Ross Funeral Home, 801 Fairmont Ave., Fairmont.

Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.rossfh.com.
