PRENTISS -- Albert Blackwell Walton joined his heavenly family Friday afternoon, Sept. 13, 2013, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born Jan. 25, 1954, in Augusta, to Albert and Florence Walton, of Gardiner.

He was a graduate of Gardiner Area High School, class of 1973. Albert worked serveral years in the woods. He actually used horses to yard the wood at the beginning before owning a skidder. Albert drove truck for Van Pak out of Boston, Mass., where he was able to visit many states. He drove a chip truck for Mount View Express. Albert was a member of the Springfield Volunteer Fire Department.

Albert was a avid hunter who enjoyed hunting with family and friends. He had some prize trophies and plenty of stories to go along with those hunting trips.

Albert loved to garden. Every year, he would set up his greenhouse and plant various flowers and vegetables. He had a green thumb, as his mother did, and had beautiful flower and vegetable gardens.

Albert was predeceased by his father, Albert; grandparents; great-grandmother; and aunts and uncles.

Besides his mother, Florence, he is survived by one son, Jason Walton, and his wife, Jessica, of Princeton; three brothers: James Walton and his wife, Grace, of Pittston, John Walton, of Augusta, and William Walton, of Fairfield; and one sister, Anita Levesque, and her husband Rudy, of Linneus.

Albert had three grandchildren, Sebastian and Savannah Walton, both of Houlton, and Ashton Walton, of Medway; and a goddaughter, Kimberly Levesque, of Linneus.

Albert leaves behind several cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and his dog, Lady.

A celebration of his life will be at 1 p.m. Sept. 28, at the Gardiner Elks Lodge in Gardiner. Refreshments will be served.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Community Health and Counseling: Hospice, P.O. Box 208 Lincoln, ME 04457.
