Albert Strebeck, a man whose life was defined by dedication, and love for his family, has passed away in McKinney, Texas. Born on June 9, 1935, in Alba, Texas, Albert led a remarkable life that left an indelible mark on the world around him. Surrounded by his loving wife until his final moments, he peacefully transitioned on January 9, 2024.

Throughout his life, Al embarked on several notable vocations that showcased his unwavering commitment to serving others. Following his high school graduation, he spent five years working on the railroad before embarking on a remarkable journey with the Dallas Police Department. From January 7, 1959, to June 9, 1985—spanning an impressive twenty-six years—Albert served as a Dallas Police Officer. His unwavering courage and dedication earned him the profound respect and admiration of his colleagues and community.

Upon his retirement from the police force, Albert continued to provide security services for various hotels. His experience and skills were valued by those he worked with as he sought to ensure the safety and well-being of all those in his care.

While some may remember Albert as grumpy at times, it was evident that his family was at the center of his heart and brought immense joy into his life. He adored his wife Julia and cherished their shared moments together. He also loved music, he was also part of a bluegrass band called The Bluegrass Texans where he played a big bass.

Al leaves behind his beautiful wife of 15 years, Julia, his two daughters: Cindie Barnett and her husband Donald, as well as Kathy Phillips and her husband Roy, his brother V.O Jr. Strebeck and wife Nancy, and sister Leuna Jacobs. He leaves behind a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friends, and numerous others whose lives he enriched.

Albert was preceded in death by his parents, brother James Strebeck, sister Ruth Jobe, first wife Mildred Lyles, second wife Mary Stinson, sons; Jeff Strebeck, Michael Strebeck, and Ben Howard Franks Jr., and daughter Tami Sheree Strebeck. 

In addition to his professional pursuits, Albert embraced his military service in the Army with the same fortitude that defined his character. He selflessly dedicated a part of his life to protect the cherished values of his beloved country.

Although Albert's commitment and dedication to service were evident throughout his life, it is important to remember that he was more than just a uniform or a badge. He possessed a range of interests and hobbies that fueled his spirit. His time with the police force was undoubtedly a significant part of who he was—a testament to his unwavering dedication.

Albert Hughie Strebeck's legacy will live on through the memories he shared with those closest to him and the impact he made on countless lives.
