Albert E. Eaton 70, passed away on Wednesday, September 27, 2023 at his home, surrounded by his loving family.
Albert was born in Manchester, on July 29, 1953, son to the late George and Edith (Wasson) Eaton. He was raised and educated in Auburn, following his graduation he went on to serve in the United States Air Force.
After his time in the service, he began his career in trucking. He began working for Manchester Sand and Gravel and Robie Construction before starting his own business, A. Eaton and Sons Trucking. During that time he hauled for Gold Star Sod Farm and Zapora Transportation. After selling his trucks, he became an instructor for North East Tractor Trailer School and later Saul’s Driver Education. He enjoyed teaching in his own jeep, and sometimes took his students off-roading. He formally retired from trucking in 2019 from F. W. Webb.
Albert was a true outdoorsman; he enjoyed hunting, fishing and archery throughout New England, his hometown of Auburn being his favorite. When he wasn’t in the woods, he could be found on his property in his favorite John Deer Tractor or in his younger years tending to his horses.
