Peter T. Albertz

Peter T. “Pistol”
Albertz, 51, died Monday, December 9, 2019 at St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du
Lac. He was born in Fond du Lac on Sunday, June 30, 1968 to Arnold and Ann
(Thornton) Albertz.


Pistol was
passionate about everything that he did. He was involved in many political activist
groups involving social justice issues such as workers rights, police reform,
and economic justice for the poor and disadvantaged. Pistol wanted to make the
world a better place for all men, women, and children. He cared about the
environment deeply and stood strongly against the KXL pipeline. Pistol marched
many times with OCCUPY both within and outside of Wisconsin. His strongest
wishes were to have a strong and prosperous working class and to strengthen
workers unions.


Pistol loved riding
his motorcycle and was a member of the Top Hats MC. He was a huge supporter of
any ride or fundraiser that involved veterans, fire departments and bikers
against child abuse. Pistol’s dedication to help anyone in need was amazing. He
always knew when someone was down and would do whatever he could to help them
through difficult times. Pistol had worked at Mercury Marine since 2015 and was
very proud of his recent promotion to Mercury Racing. Co-workers described him
as a caring, kind, and passionate worker who truly cared about Mercury Marine
as a company.


Above all, Pistol
was very proud of being a grandpa and loved spending time with his grandsons,
taking them to EAA in the summers.
