Albert George Hatter
August 31, 1925 – July 9, 2020

With sadness and grateful hearts, we remember our Dad, Albert (Al) Hatter. It’s been a long time coming. Pa flew the coop at the age of 94. Al was born in the rural, western coal mining town of McKees Rocks, PA., outside of Pittsburgh. He began school in the proverbial one room schoolhouse.

Although born into humble surroundings, Al grew into a man who had it all: the love and respect of his wife, children, brothers, sister, and friends. His greatest gifts were his steadfast love, security, and guidance. His best investment was in his family.

His mother, Anna Rizner Hatter immigrated from Czechoslovakia and died when he was 12 years old. His father, Frank J. Hatter was a chemist turned farmer.

A life-long Presbyterian, Al met Martha Louise Langford in high school at the Dunbar Presbyterian Church. They were married at First Presbyterian Church, Connellsville and were married for 52 years until Martha’s death in 2003. Active in the church chancel choir, teaching Sunday school, he also served as a deacon and elder.

Al served his country in WW2 with the Army Air Force as a B-29 tail gunner in the Pacific. After the war, Al returned to Pennsylvania, graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 1950. Upon their marriage, they moved to Wichita Falls, Texas, where he was electrical instructor at Shepard AFB. Moving to Houston in 1953 he began a 39-year career with General Electric, managing credit and collections in Oklahoma City, and Dallas.

Civic responsibilities included serving the Irving, Texas Civil Service Commission. He was also President of the Irving Republican Club for many years.

As the third of four children, Al loved his siblings: William F. Hatter of Pittsburgh, PA. (1921-1994), John J. Hatter of Canoga Park, CA. (1921-2015). His sister Dorothy Hatter Hankel (Connellsville, PA.) survives him and his children, Valerie Hatter (Plano, TX.) and Douglas Hatter (Dallas, TX).

A special Thank You to Mello, Sharon, and Musa with New Horizons. They cared for Dad as if he was family.

We will gather to confirm our faith in the Resurrection at Highland Park Presbyterian Church, 3821 University Blvd., Dallas, TX 75025. Interment will be at Sparkman Hillcrest Memorial Park, Dallas.

Memorial tributes may be directed toward Canine Companions, Kinkeade Campus, Irving TX., or Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank,

We won the lottery when Dads were assigned and were blessed to have his presence for so many years. Welcome Home Dad. You peacefully and safely landed. Job well done.
