He is survived by his brother, Thomas “Tom” Albano and wife, Bernell of Albuquerque, NM, and he was a beloved uncle to many nieces and nephews. Tony and his wife Sharon, of 40 plus years, lived in Forest Park, IL, and planned to retire and join their family, Tom and Bernell in Albuquerque. After a brief illness, Sharon passed away in December 2016. Tony then made the move to Albuquerque. Tony quickly became a very active part of Sagebrush Church. For the last two plus years, Tony served in several areas of the church with his passion being mission work in impoverished countries. With his 40-year nursing experience, Tony brought medical assistance to people in need in places that included Egypt, Zambia, Haiti, and Belize.
