Charles A. Albright was born March 12, 1928 in Monroe, LA and passed away on October 14, 2022 at Landmark Nursing Home in West Monroe after a lengthy illness. A family graveside service was held for Charles on Sunday, October 16 at Mulhearn Memorial Park Cemetery in Monroe. Charles was preceded in death by his wife Nina Maddux Albright, his parents Asa Ivy Albright and Beulah White Albright and his brother Asa Ivy Albright, Jr.
He is survived by his children, John Albright and wife Debbie, Jeff Albright and wife Margo, Julie Greene and husband Greg; grandchildren Lindsey Keslar and husband Tim, Amy Jones and husband Josh, Jeff Albright, Jr. and wife Beth, Charles Eugene Albright and wife Kyra, Daniel Greene, Emily Bradshaw and husband Hunter, Nick Richardson and wife Whitney, Audrey Traxler and husband Steve; eighteen great-grandchildren.
Charles served in the Army during the Korean War. After his military service, he owned and operated, for over 60 years, a family business, C.A. Albright Sawmill and Lumber Company, in West Monroe. Charles enjoyed working hard, reading, cooking, and hunting deer, squirrels and ducks on family property in D’Arbonne Swamp. He loved raising cattle, gardening, going anywhere and doing anything with his wife of 61 years, Nina, whom he loved dearly. He also loved listening to music and singing in church choirs (something he enjoyed doing for decades at Covenant Presbyterian Church, where he was a charter member). Charles was ordained as deacon and elder in the Presbyterian Church and at different times in his life was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Monroe, Covenant Presbyterian Church in Monroe, Highland Presbyterian Church in West Monroe, and New Iona Presbyterian Church in West Monroe. Later in life, he was also a frequent visitor in worship at the Rayville Presbyterian Church. One of the ways Charles showed himself to be a faithful follower of Christ, was in the faithfulness he showed to his family. He was a deeply devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather; a wise, kind, caring, loving encouraging presence to all of us, leaving us with memories of him we will cherish forever. The family would like to thank Dr. Emile Barrow and Dr. Charles Morgan for their medical ministry to Charles through the years, also to “Ascend Hospice Care” for special assistance provided to him over the last few months. And we want to especially thank all the caregivers at Landmark Nursing Home who so faithfully cared for and ministered to “Pawpaws” needs every day, and every hour of the day, for the past very difficult year and a half of his life. We are so grateful to you all.
