Albert D. Springfield, of Hubbardston, died peacefully Monday, January 31, 2022, in UMass Memorial Medical Center—University Campus, Worcester, with his family by his side.
Born in Marlin, Texas, on May 19, 1935, he was the son of the late Hansel Albert and Vena (Evans) Springfield. After graduating from high school, Albert enlisted in the United States Navy, serving from 1954 to 1958, where he received the Good Conduct Medal. He later received his Electrical Certification.
