From Albert’s wife, Cathy:
Albert Handy passed away on January 19, 2024  from pancreatic cancer. He suffered for about 1 1/2 years going through successful Whipple surgery but then in October the cancer came back. He had a serious infection and then a stroke which took away his ability to talk and move. He died peacefully at home.

Al served in Turkey-12 and taught Corrective Therapy at Haceteppe Children’s Hospital in Ankara. For our honeymoon back in 1981 we went back to Ankara to see that the kids he taught were now doctors and nurses! What a credit to Al and the Peace Corps.

His obituary is on the Vines Funeral Hone (LaFayette, Alabama) website and Facebook page.
