Albert J. Stansfield, a retired machinist and welder for General Motors Corp., died Thursday of acute myocardial infarction at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, Mass., while visiting his daughter. He was 83 and had lived for more than 50 years in Baltimore.

Born and educated in Brownsville, Pa., he served in the Army Air Corps during World War II. Stationed at Aberdeen Proving Ground, he was honorably discharged as a staff sergeant. After the war, he returned to work for General Motors in Baltimore as a welder and machinist, retiring in 1982.

He was married in 1942 to the former Helen Early, who died in 2000.

He was a Methodist and a lifelong member of the AFL-CIO. He enjoyed reading and working crossword puzzles. He also was an outdoorsman, and enjoyed hunting and fishing.

A memorial service was held yesterday in Chatham, Mass.

He is survived by a daughter, Pamela Marciezyk of Brewster, Mass.; a son, Albert W. Stansfield of Baltimore; six grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.
