Knoxville Lawyer Dies at 91

Retired Knoxville area lawyer Willard Nathaniel Albert died at his home Saturday (Sept. 14). He was 91.  Albert practiced law in the Fountain City area for more than 60 years after graduating from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 1945 as a part of the first G.I. Bill class. After spending the first part of his career working with Charles Davis and Ray Jenkins, Albert moved to the Fountain City area as a solo practitioner. In 1959, he built his office on North Broadway Street where he continued to practice until his retirement. The family received friends and held a funeral service over the weekend. An internment service was held today. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Dutch Valley Church of God, 1416 Breda Dr., Knoxville, TN 37918 to support the church's mission work.
