Obituary

Albert Edward Dery II, 74, of Kanawha City, passed away suddenly on September 10, 2022.

He was proceeded in death by his parents, Albert and Louise Dery; sisters, Carolyn “Susie” Dery, Patricia Farry, and Mary Margaret Hinson.

Albert is survived by his wife of 52 years, Kathleen “Kathi” Whelan Dery; sons, Albert “Ted” and Jon “Gabe”; daughter, Joyce & fiancé Kelly Gupton; granddaughter and best little buddy, Isabella “Izzy”; grandson, Christopher Means; sisters, Barbara “Bobbie” Baldy and Elizabeth Looney and husband Timothy; along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family, and friends.

Albert was a lifelong member of Saint Agnes Catholic Church and a dedicated volunteer at their Common Grounds Outreach Center.  He worked as a journeyman electrician for 42 years for IBEW Local 466.

Albert was the ultimate family man and his favorite pastime was that spent with family and friends.  He enjoyed taking his “Al’s gals” anywhere they wanted to go and loved the adventures he shared with them.  He wanted to fix things and make life right for everyone he knew and was always a phone call away for anyone who needed him.  In true Albert form, he helped others even after his passing by donating his organs to CORE.

The family is planning a private service for a later date.

Barlow Bonsall Funeral Home, Charleston has been entrusted with the arrangements.

  1. We were so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of cousin Albert. Although we had not visited West Virginia in some years we have many fond childhood and young adulthood memories of Albert and Kathy. Our sincere condolences to Kathy and family.

    Albert was truly one of the really good guys. I will always remember he and I sanding and polishing all the hallways at CCHS during the summer as our summer job. Then we do the same in the cafeteria. It was hard work, but we had a lot of fun doing it. Then when we were seniors we had the dubious distinction to install the juke box that CCHS won in the county wide contest to see who could raise the most money for charity. We even stuck in a few extra 45’s that the nuns did not know about. Albert was such a great friend to the whole class of ’67 and he will always be remembered. Thank you for being my friend Albert.

  3. Kathi;

    Heaven holds a special place for Albert; he was such a kind and generous person and a true family man. He was always willing to lend a helping hand no matter the project or the cause, he was there. He even worked on our lamppost once and did projects for my wife’s real estate customers. I will always remember him for the real person he was and sincerely wish you and your family strength and the best in all your future endeavors he will be watching from above. Dave.
