Albert Raymond Meloy (1945 – 2024)

Albert “Al” Meloy, beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend, and educator, passed away on May 12, 2024 at the age of 78.

Born on May 30, 1945 in Akron, OH, Albert was the oldest of three children of Woodrow and Doretta Meloy.

His passion for learning and experiencing life to the fullest was evident from an early age. Al dedicated over 40 years to public education starting as a teacher and becoming a superintendent in 1987, then working for the Ohio School Boards Association until his retirement in 2011. His favorite years as an educator were spent serving as the principal of Albion High School in Albion, MI. He had a profound impact on generations of students through his
visionary leadership, support of families and communities, commitment to excellence, and belief that all students should be given the opportunity to succeed.

Al enjoyed distance running, playing handball, riding his Harley-Davidson, golfing with friends, and connecting with people wherever he went. He had boundless energy, a tenacious spirit, and a gift for making others laugh and feel loved. Above all, his greatest joy was his family.

Albert is survived by his wife, Judyth Dobbert Meloy; daughter Kelley Jones (Scott Jones) and granddaughters Jensen and Jaylyn; daughter Meagan Meloy (Patrick Clark) and granddaughter Clover; son Matthew Meloy (Elexis Meloy) and grandsons Dylan and Landon; daughter Rebecca Hawkins (Robert Hawkins) and grandsons Braxton and Monroe.

Albert will be dearly missed by his family, friends, former colleagues, and students. The family will hold a celebration of Albert’s life at a time and place to be determined. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Lower Cape Fear LifeCare. https://lifecare.org/donate/

    Had the pleasure of playing golf with Al and knew him for a short time but had many laughs with him.
    Condolences to his family and I’d like to send off some pictures of Al as a member of our team.
