Albert Wharton passed away April 1 in Riberas del Pilar.
Born August 6, 1935 in Laredo, Texas, Wharton joined the U.S. Army and served with the 32nd Infantry from 1956 to 1962. He was a welder and, before retiring in 2003, helped build a submarine using metal salvaged from the 9/11/2001 attacks in New York.
Wharton married his wife Nancy on March 23, 1993.
Wharton had always wanted to live in Mexico, so after retirement he loaded up his wife and three dogs, and drove to Chapala. His spouse says the following years were happy ones at Lakeside.
Wharton will be greatly missed by his wife, pets, family and friends.
