Albert was born on June 28, 1950, in Evanston, the son of Merle and Jeanette (Kiddy) Werner. He grew up and attended school at Evanston. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and was stationed in San Diego, Calif. He then returned to Evanston, where he worked in the oil fields, and was a concrete finisher.
