Albert was born June 15, 1967, in Buncombe County, to the late Samuel Clay and Violet May Buckner. He was a resident of Buncombe County most of his life. Albert loved hunting, fishing, cars, football, music, his dogs and most of all, his family.
Albert loved and supported his family. He was always there to be a listening ear and to provide comforting hugs. He stood up for what he believed in and was always lending a helping hand. Albert had a laugh that would light up a room and a smile that will be missed.
