Death Notification : Corporal Albert Friedman (Retired)

The Lodge regrets to announce the death of retired Corporal Albert Friedman.  Albert Friedman passed away on August 1, 2018 after a year long battle with brain cancer. Al is survived by Kathy his wife of 35 years and his son Steven. Al joined the Baltimore County Police Department on November 6, 1979 and retired on November 2, 2013.
 

On November 5, 1979, 26 year-old Al Friedman received his acceptance letter into the Baltimore County Police Department where he was instructed to report for duty for the first time on November 26, 1979.  He began his field training at the Garrison precinct where he stayed for next two years and in March of 1982, Al transferred to C.O.P.E (Area I).   On December 21, 1985, Al received a promotion to Corporal and transferred to Traffic H.Q. This is when Al found his niche with Traffic Management.   34 years later, with hundreds of appreciation letters, commendations and awards, Corporal Al Friedman retired on November 2, 2013.

After a yearlong battle with brain cancer, Al left this earth to be in a much more beautiful place. Al was a husband, a father, and a son. He was a friend to many and a brother in Blue to all. He found solace in serving his community and the citizens of Baltimore County and most importantly, he loved making people laugh. Al has touched many hearts along the way and he will surely be missed.
