In Loving Memory

Albert Carl Hillmeyer


Albert Carl Hillmeyer passed away at the age of 94 on April 16, 2018 after a long battle with dementia. He was born in Elmendorf, TX on June 30, 1923. Albert was the son of Joseph and Emma (Real) Hillmeyer. Albert had two brothers, Herman, and Louis Hillmeyer, and one sister, Cecilia (Hillmeyer) Rittman whom all have preceded him in death.

He is survived by his two beloved daughters, Connie Peirson and her husband Mack Peirson, Lisa Carpenter and her husband Craig Carpenter, along with his granddaughter, Kimberly Mitchell with whom he considered a third daughter. Kimberly was Albert’s primary caregiver for nearly three years and they shared many fun adventures together.

Albert was a Marine Corps veteran of World War II. He was a radioman in the Corps and served in the Battle of Okinawa. Immediately after the end of the war, he was assigned to China, where he established a radio station for the military.

Albert, known to his friends as Al, will be remembered as an expert fish taxidermist, well known in the Lake Conroe area for more than 40 years. Long known for his infectious grin, positive outlook on life, big personality, and colorful stories, Al considered everyone he met a friend, and he would give the shirt off his back to a stranger. Al will be dearly missed by his family and friends.  

The family appreciates the many kindnesses of the staff at Silver Hills Assisted Living in Montgomery, TX. 
The Funeral Service will be held at 10:00 AM on Friday, April 20, 2018 at Metcalf Funeral Directors in Conroe, TX. Military honors will be performed at a Graveside Service at the Houston National Cemetery at 12:45pm.
