He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Sandra (Horner) Cahill; his children Jimmy (Lissette) Cahill, Theresa Cahill, Tammy (Andrew) Pier, Tracy Cahill, Jackie (Michael) Gregory, and Tanya (Richard) Hunter; as well as his brother Gilbert (Marilyn) Cahill, his sister Dorothy (Carlos) Torres, and his sister-in-law Doris Cahill. Albert was also the loving grandfather to nineteen grandchildren; great grandfather of two great grandchildren, and a beloved uncle to several nieces and nephews.

Albert enjoyed riding his bicycle around town, collecting commemorative U.S. coins, and trying to master the pac-man video game. He kept up on the local police and fire departments by listening to his scanner on a daily basis. But most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family.
A memorial service will be held at Behe Funeral Home, 21 Main Street, Oxford, NY on Wednesday, January 16th at 12:00PM, with the Rev. Allen Lang of the United Church of Oxford officiating.
