Albert Bridges May 15, 1915 – October 14, 1991 Written June 1974 By DeLeen Bridges Albert Bridges, son of Almon and Laura Maltida Nay, was born May 15, 1915 at Fillmore, Utah. The family moved to Sevier, Sevier Utah a few years later. His early life was very hard, because of the death of his father when he was 11 years old. He was the second child of a family of eight children. Three boys and five girls; Myrtle, Albert, Pearl, Wanda (died as a baby), Almon, Deliaha, Alma, Mary Alice and Don. His responsibilities were great in helping his mother to care for these children. Soon after the death of his father the family moved to Circleville, Puite County to be near their mothers people. At the age of 13 he got his hip hurt in a sleighing accident, which was to hurt him all the time until he had it operated on when he was 57. When it was first done he spent one month in the Primary Hospital in a cast, but this didn’t seem to help and so he became lame. What a relief it was when he had a total hip operation. He was only able to go to school until he was in the eighth grade, because he had to help support the family. He went to work on any job he could find. When the W.P.A. went into effect he worked on that and when the C.C.C. came he work in the Mt. Pleasant area. He wasn’t in the C.C.C. very long however because his brother-in-law Ben Morrill got him a job driving truck and later to drive a school bus. This was the year of 1937. Here he met his future wife. He and DeLeen Shaw were married Oct. 3, 1938. Their first home was in Venice, Sevier, Utah. He continued driving school bus for the next four years. Here their first two children were born; Gayla Mae May 27, 1939 and Gary Oct. 6, 1941. Now World War II started. Albert didn’t have to go because of his hip, so he did go into defense work. First he went to Delta to help build a Japanese camp, then to Ogden to help build the ordinance depot at Clearfield, then to Provo to help build the Geneva Steel Plant. In 1943 he started to work at the Ironton Steel Plant. Here the Bridges bought their first home 1057 East 2nd South Provo, Utah. Here their 3rd child was born; Scot Albert June 3, 1945. They didn’t like living in town however, so after 4 years they sold out and moved out to Lakeview (a suburb of Provo). Here two more children were born to them; Almon Joseph May 31, 1949 and Margie Dec. 7, 1956. While living in Lakeview the family became very active in the church. On May 23, 1952 they went to the Temple in Salt Lake City and was married for time and eternity and had their 5 children sealed to them. Albert worked at Ironton for 19 years. Things went well. All was happy then the Stell plant closed down and the first time in their married lives Albert was out of work. He did odd jobs on farms and construction work. Then in 1965 he went to work at the Utah State Training School at American Fork, Utah. Two hears later he became the “Chef” which at this time he holds this same position. Tragedy struck the Bridges family June 12, 1953 when they were involved in a head-on collision. All members were hospitalized, with Albert and DeLeen being hurt more seriously. Albert’s right ankle was crushed, which didn’t heal properly. On Oct. 26 Almon Joseph was killed when he was hit be a train. In 1970 Scot Albert went to the temple and had Joes work done form him. As the children grew up they attended school and church and were married in the temple (Margie is still at home). At present time Albert has 6 grandchildren. Gayla Mae married John Ray Colby January 31, 1958 Gary married Linda Ann Scott April 15, 1959 they were sealed in the temple December 8, 1973 Scot Albert married Ora Lynn Harris August 8, 1969

It was adopted on August 18, 1920.
Albert Bridges was 24 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people.

Albert Bridges was 29 years old when World War II: The Allied invasion of Normandy—codenamed Operation Overlord—begins with the execution of Operation Neptune (commonly referred to as D-Day), the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.

The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
