David R. Albright, 63, of Athens, lost his brave battle with cancer on January 3, 2023.

Dave was born on September 11, 1959 in Catskill, New York.

David graduated from Coxsackie Athens High School and Hudson Valley Community College.

After leaving United Parcel Service, Dave became a self-employed courier driver.

He was a multi-sportsman and coach. His love of sports was surpassed only by his love of rock music, surpassed only by his love of time with his family.

Dave is survived by his 30-year-old wife Tammy (Bell), daughter Cierra, son Christian (Kia), mother Donna Dralle, sister Traci Kaylor, mother-in-law Judy Bell, sister-in-law Terry (John), nephews Jack, Mick (Claire), and Bryan William (Mackenzie). He is also survived by his nieces Carina and Kara (George), great-niece Elle, grand-nephews Tyler and Grant.

Dave is deceased by his grandparents George and Frances Jackson, Ralph and Laura Albright, his uncle George “Sonny” Jackson and father-in-law James Bell.

The visit will be on Saturday, January 14, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., followed by a 2:00 p.m. service at The Second Reformed Church, 16 Washington Avenue, Coxsackie, New York, 12051.

The arrangements are being made under the direction of WC Brady’s Sons, Inc. Funeral Home, 97 Mansion Street, Coxsackie, New York, 12051.
