Albert G. Schwarzer, “Abo” to most, passed away on Sunday, March 12, 2023 at his home in Streetman, TX, at the age of 95.
Abo was born June 24, 1927 in Austin to parents Walter and Pearl (Knudsen) Schwarzer. He married Mary Frances Lane December 8, 1948, and together they raised two daughters. He began his career with the TXU System of Companies in Rockdale, which spanned over 40 years and many different mines and capacities, retiring in 1992.
