Albin graduated from Bergland High School in 1957 and later earned an Associate Degree from Gogebic Community College in Ironwood, Michigan. Albin served in the U.S. Air Force at Carswell AFB in Texas from 1960-1964. He was employed at Fisher Body, Soo Line Railroad, Michigan Department of Education Migrant Program and finally, Lac Vieux Desert (Northern Waters) Casino, which he said was his favorite job.

Albin's family is planning a celebration of life in the summer of 2021, when all family and friends will be able to gather outside in a responsible manner. Notification of date, time and location will be made by family through social media and-or by phone.

Albin will be missed and loved until "The Twelfth of Never," his favorite song by Johnny Mathis.
