He continued to work as a lead scientist at Mission Research Corporation until 2001. His lifelong love of Saddlebred horses brought he and his wife to Kentucky in 2002 where they purchased a farm and continued their breeding of horses at Roseridge Farms. His vision of Saddlebreds led to several champions. He was a member of the Kentucky Bass Club of Danville for several years and had a lifetime love of fishing with friends and family. He was also a member of the Fort Harrod Beekeeping Club. People remember Albert for his outgoing personality, sense of humor, and strong work ethic.
