Douglas A. Albone, 68, of Medina, entered into rest on Sunday, August 16, 2020 at the Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital with his wife Paulette by his side.
Born January 7, 1952 in Medina, Doug was a son of the late Joseph and Dorothy (Fritz) Albone. He was employed as a truck driver for 30 plus years and retired from Champion Moving & Storage in Brockport. His truck driving career gave him the opportunity to visit many states and family along the way. He was a member of the Sons of the American Legion, Butts-Clark Post #204 and a social member of VFW, Linoln Post #1483. Doug was an avid card player, especially euchre and also enjoyed hunting and fishing. For many years Doug was the team leader for the Annual Diabetes Walk that was held in Batavia where he and his team raised money for the American Diabetes Association. Fundraising and giving to others were something Doug enjoyed. He loved fishing so much that he organized an Annual Fishing Derby that was held at Glenwood Lake in Medina. The proceeds each year were shared between Kendall and Medina food pantries. Doug started each year in January collecting prizes for the derby. At that time, he was still over the road truck driver. Each stop that had any fishing gear Doug was asking for a donation and he was extremely successful. He continued this event until he could no longer organize it due to health reasons.
Survivors include his wife, Paulette M. (Davis) Albone of Medina; one daughter, Celeste (Michael) Cline; four sons, Christopher (Denise) Adams, Michael (Becky Houseman) Adams, James (Carrie Ann) Adams, Nicholas (Veronica) Adams; six grandchildren, Alicia (Quinton), Sydney (Justin), Allissa, McKenna, Benjamin and Adelyn; four great-grandchildren, Scarlett, Kingston, Greycen and Vinnie; siblings, Patricia (Robert) Farman, Sandra (Wally) Ancker, Bruce (Cindy) Albone and Diana (Paul) Fulcomer; several nieces and nephews; and good friend, Rick Culver. Beside his parents, Doug was predeceased by his sister, Linda Brownell and grandson, Trevor Adams.
