  • My condolences to the Albo family. I had the pleasure of sitting on the Winnipeg youth soccer board with Joe and always valued his opinions. A man of great integrity, looking out for what was best for the game of soccer and the people in it. We enjoyed many conversations about the characters in the Winnipeg’s soccer scene that we both had the pleasure of meeting and I look back fondly on those talks. He will be missed. - Posted by: Sam Barlin (Friend) on: Jun 12, 2019

  • My sincere condolences to the Albo family. I have such fond memories of Joe, connected always (and of course!) with soccer, beginning at River Heights Community Centre where his son and my boys played.
