Anthony Albrecht, 81, gas station co-owner

March 16, 2000

Anthony L. Albrecht, retired co-owner of a Parkville filling station, died Tuesday of complications of an ulcer at Fallston General Hospital. He was 81 and lived in BelAir.

From the end of World War II until he retired in 1986, he operated Albrecht's Amoco at Texas Avenue and Harford Road, a business his father established in 1925.

The Parkville native was a 1936 graduate of Towson High School. He was drafted in 1941 and was an Army Air Forces pilot in the China-Burma-India Theater, flying over the "Hump," as the Himalayas were called, delivering supplies and transporting troops.

He was a member of the Hump Pilots Association, and of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion Post 183, both in Parkville. He was a founder of the Parkville Civil Air Patrol.

A member of Alcoholics Anonymous, Mr. Albrecht had celebrated 25 years of sobriety at the time of his death, said his wife of 48 years, the former Marie R. Robinson.

He was a communicant of St. Ursula Roman Catholic Church, 8801 Harford Road in Parkville, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Toni Booker of Kennett Square, Pa., and Diane King of Parkville; a brother, William H. Albrecht of Parkville; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
