Albert Morales Saenz left a hole in this world on October 23, 2019 to go home to his Heavenly Father. He was born in El Paso, Texas on November 16, 1960 to Mary and Albert Saenz. Soon after he was born, his family moved to San Jose, California with siblings Tony and (later in CA) Susie.

He attended San Jose State University where he received his degree in Mechanical Engineering. Following college, he married and had three precious babies; Alyssa, Kari and Philip. He was undeniably the most devoted father on the planet. And the most fun. After his divorce, he fell in love with and EVENTUALLY married Vicki, and evened out the boy/girl quota with Albert. He was precious too!

His professional career started in the Silicon Valley where he co-authored several patents and worked on ground breaking technologies. After Vicki’s father’s health began to deteriorate, they moved to Texas and started R.O.I. Windows and Doors. Nobody worked harder than Al. Seriously. The young guys had to tell him to take breaks. After a full day with work, he was the first to help out anyone – often before they asked, fixing trailers, trimming trees, home repairs. Anything and everything.

Al was a natural athlete. When the kids were young, every kid wanted to be at our house because there was always going to be a game of tag, hide and seek (this never stopped after childhood), football game (he was always the quarterback), or baseball. He helped with coaching on every team in every sport his kids played. He could honestly master any sport within minutes, exasperating everyone that had worked for years on their skills. He loved to fish and carried his rods and reels with him in his van in case he happened to have time to kill between appointments near a body of water. He also could go a year without swinging a golf club and still shoot around an 82, (without cheating) irritating everyone that played twice a week. Many people never knew he was an amazing artist.

Al loved everyone and everyone loved him. He had an indescribable quality – sometimes annoying to his family- that charmed EVERYONE. They couldn’t help themselves. He was trusted and trustworthy. His hobby was going to California and playing with his grandbabies. His special skills were dancing, baby charming, confidant, ice breaker, pet whisperer, and line crosser. And friend to all that met him. He was the genuine article.

He leaves behind his wife Vicki; children Alyssa Saenz, Kari and husband Sanjay Tabancay, Philip and wife Alyssa Saenz (all of California), and Albert Mercer; Grandchildren Isaac Garay, Nathan and Eli Tabancay, and Maddox and Ayla Saenz; his mother Mary Saenz; brother Tony Saenz; sister Susie Saenz and enough nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws and outlaws to fill a small stadium. He was preceded in death by his father Albert.

He will be achingly missed.

I met Al when I worked at XMR, we became very good friends over the years. We always had a lot of laughs, and some crazy times. Albert hung with me on my first venture out on my new Harley. He stayed with me all the way up Monteray highway encouraging me to go at least the speed limit. He stopped a few times to let me catch up. We continued on to the Easter Bike Blessing, one of my favorite memories, to show how kind and patient he was as a friend. He and Vicki and I spent a fun New Years eve together in Waco, and many other times listening to Blues in downtown San Jose, "THE BAND" at various events around the area. We ended up having several mutual friends from Morgan Hill. It is devastating to know he passed on so young. He was a great father, great friend and all around great human being. Al, you will be missed, and thought of often. Love, Sue "The Farmer"

Vicki and family,
I was truly sorry to hear about Al's passing, I couldn't believe what my brother Michael was saying. It wasn't that long ago Al was driving his jammed packed van down the highway with the radio blasting and everyone singing and enjoying the day. I also remember the time the two of you came to Austin on your motorcycle, partied all day and couldn't drive back! That was a cozy night for everyone sleeping in the same room, didn't really enjoy sleeping with my brother... did you ever take the plush robe?
Waking up early the next morning so we could have our free breakfast and critique Michael's presentation, we set him straight. Or how about the time you guys stayed at the Hyatt and Al saved a "little" something for Michael to experience by locking him in the bathroom. I have great memories of our once a year get together in Austin.
Al was a wonderful, fun-loving guy who truly adored his family and friends. My heart and prayers go out the whole family, he will be missed.
God Bless,
Charlotte Cicatello and family

I went to Live Oak high school with Albert in Morgan Hill, CA. He was one of the nicest guys around back then and even further proven by the great man he grew up to be. I’m saddened for his family to lose him at such a young age. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
