Carl Alber of Trumbull died on May 30, 2020 at the age of 89 from complications of COVID-19. He was the son of the late Carl A. and Anna (Kaiser) Alber.
Carl was born in Connecticut and raised in Stratford. He was a 1948 graduate of Stratford High School and a 1951 graduate of the University of Bridgeport. Carl was a Trumbull resident for nearly 60 years. He was a Certified Public Accountant for 63 years and proud owner of his public accounting firm in Stratford for 58 years.
An avid sports fan, Carl was a New York Rangers season ticket holder for 50 years. He also was civically minded, serving as a member and treasurer of the Stratford/Trumbull Civitan Club, Stratford Softball Tournaments, Inc., Union Cemetery and Valley Horseshoe League.
He will be remembered by all for his kind, generous and helpful nature. Carl was a tireless worker and a strong, loving and supportive man. Above all, Carl was happiest in the presence of — and making memories with — his treasured family and friends.
