Albie died Jan. 15, 2023. Always a fun guy to be around, he lived his life by his motto, “Laughter is the fun of life, who wants to be sad all the time?” Born in Jersey City, N.J., he graduated from the Peddie School where he was president of the senior class, chairman of the student council, and played football, basketball, and baseball.

At Princeton, Albie played freshman football and baseball, majored in history, was active in Orange Key and the Pre-Law Society, drilled with Army ROTC, and joined Tiger Inn, where he participated in all intramural sports.

Following graduation he married his first wife, Lynn, earned a law degree from the University of Virginia, then proudly served two years in the Army as a second lieutenant. Upon discharge from the Army, the Meyers, now with two children in tow (a third came later on), moved to Pound Ridge, N.Y. and Albie, having passed the New York bar, began his career as an attorney working as general counsel to General Foods. His career in law would later take him to New York Life and Chubb Insurance.

Following a divorce, in 1992 Albie remarried and became a stepfather to two children, adding to the enjoyment he had in coaching the children’s sports teams. 

Albie is survived by his second wife, Charlotte; five children; and 11 grandchildren.
