September 9, 1953 ~ October 7, 2022

Born in: Livermore, California
Resided in: Fremont, California

On Friday, October 7, Albert Sandoval Jr, a beloved husband, dad, papa, great grandpapa passed away at his home at the age of 69.

Albert was born September 9, 1953, to Margaret and Albert Sandoval Sr in Livermore California. He grew up in Union City where he attended James Logan High School and later Chabot Junior College in Hayward. Albert went on to work at General Electric for 20 years then Sandia National Laboratories as a Safety Radiation Technician for 30 years. He married his high school sweetheart LeeAnn Moniz in 1973.

Family has always been Albert’s main priority. He enjoyed family vacations, attending his grandchildren’s sporting events, beach days with the family and weekend family BBQs at his home in Fremont. Albert enjoyed playing the guitar and listening to music. He could be found most days sitting in his favorite chair watching cooking shows and sports on television. His favorite teams were the Oakland Raiders and Oakland A’s. Albert was known for his kind, loving ways and for his big, witty sense of humor. Albert was a very intelligent man with intuitive instincts. He took pride in his appearance and had the best, well-groomed hair. He was known to his family as Dad and Papa and to his friends he was known as Big Al and Grey Wolf. Loyalty, family, friendship and protection are all traits that symbolize the native grey wolf and, fittingly, traits that accurately describe the character and personality of Albert Sandoval Jr.

Albert was proceeded in death by his parents, Margaret and Albert Sandoval Sr, and brothers, Joel and Abel Sandoval. Albert is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, LeeAnn, their three children, Yvette, Monica and Albert III, his 11 grandchildren, Vanessa, Nicholas, Alex, Isabelle, Dani, Ava, Gabrielle, Jordan, Albert IV, Dominic, Jaxson and his two great grandchildren, Dani and Angelo. His sons-in-law Lucio Goncalves and Aaron Arroy and daughter in law Jennifer Sandoval.
