Chief Petty Officer
Albert G. Howard
Albert Energy was named in honor of Albert G. Howard, son, brother, husband, father, sailor, minister.
There are many Alberts out there including famous Alberts (Albert Einstein, Albert Schweitzer), infamous Alberts (Albert DeSalvo, Albert Fish), royal Alberts (Prince Albert, Albert the Bear), and Alberts who sing the blues (Albert Collins, Albert King).
But the Albert of Albert Energy is Albert G. Howard.
Not Sir Albert Howard (1873-1947) the British botanist often referred to as “the father of modern organic agriculture,” but Albert G. Howard (1933-1973), the father of Kim Howard and Pam Howard Copeland, founding co-partner of Albert Energy.
Pam’s dad, Albert Gerald Howard, served in the United States Navy as a Chief Petty Officer and a Seabee. He served in Viet Nam in 1969 as a heavy equipment operator building roads and runways. After he retired from the U.S. Navy in 1971, he was ordained as a Baptist minister. He died at the early age of 39 from a heart condition. Pam’s fondest memories of her father include his love of Ham radio and his unconditional love as a father.
It is to honor this man that Albert Energy is so named.
