Albert was raised in the South Texas area. Where his family settled in Wheeler Texas. As a young boy Albert was raised with music in his life. His brothers, Johnny, Armando, Phil, Jimmy and himself became known as the legendary “The Motifs” Albert and Phil continued to play here in the Nevada area. Playing at all the top show lounges in Vegas, Tahoe and Reno. “The Motifs”, brought music, joy, love and a sense of family to all who had the pleasure of listening to their music. You could feel their love from the stage.
Alberts love for his family was unconditional and unwavering! He was so proud of his family, and they will always be in his heart and in his soul just as he will always be in ours. He couldn’t be prouder of them. They all have his big heart and beautiful smile.
Albert always put God first. He always reminded us that whatever happens is meant to be because only God knows our path. Everything that we accomplish is because of God. That God never leaves us, we leave him. So be right with God first and the rest will follow.
As this amazing, loving man would say at the end of each performance, “God Bless and Be Kind”
