Dan was a very social man, always out meeting new people and making new friends wherever he went. His energy and smile filled and lit up the room. To know him was to love him.
Nothing was more important to Dan than his family. Every extra moment he had was spent with the people he loved. His favorite times of the day were in the quiet and peaceful morning, drinking coffee with Bernadette, and his first beer after a hard days work in the backyard.
Survivors include his soulmate, best friend and wife, Bernadette, who he spent the last 28 years with. His adored children, Sara (Dave) Bub of Mechanicville, Charlie (Jessica) Albright of Mechanicville, Daniel J. Albright Jr. of Rensselaer, and Brandon A. (Brezney) Albright of Rensselaer; grandchildren, Julia and David Bub Jr., Caleb, Lucas, Asher, and Conor Albright, and beloved “Papa” to Jaxon.
