Albert was born March 17, 1920 in Hannibal, the son of Fred A. and Leona Haines Haug. He was a 1938 graduate of Hannibal High School, attended Hannibal-LaGrange College in 1940, then served in the 37th Infantry Division in the Philippine Islands during World War II as a sergeant, receiving the Good Conduct, Expert Rifleman, Asiatic-Pacific, Philippine Liberation, Bronze Star, Silver Star, and Purple Heart medals. He married Nettie Jane Ahlers on April 28, 1946, and she preceded him in death on January 31, 2008. He was a senior highway designer for the Missouri Department of Transportation, retiring in 1977. He played the accordion in several bands growing up, switched to the electronic organ and opened Haug Music with his wife in the early 60s, and later operated the music store with his wife and Chris Ledbetter until his death. Albert was a member of the Park United Methodist Church and American Legion. He loved his family, friends, dogs, music, traveling, gardening, and the Lake of the Ozarks.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to Park United Methodist Church or the Northeast Missouri Humane Society.
