Albert "Al" Wolcott Angelbeck passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2016 in Hartford, Conn. at the age of 79. He graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1959 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering and went on to earn a Master’s of Science in Electrical Engineering from MIT as well. He married his wife Jeannette in 1974. Al enjoyed a successful career at United Technologies Research Center until his retirement in 1993. 

Al was an accomplished skier, sailor and tennis player in his younger years and when his health precluded him from partaking in these activities he took up photography and was a long-time exhibitor at the Spring Street Gallery on Block Island.

He is survived by his wife Jeannette of South Glastonbury, his son and daughter-in-law Christoph and Alyssa, and grandchildren Ella and Teddy of Darien, Conn., as well as two nieces, Jeannette Hafeli, and Alexandra Moser, both living in Switzerland. Services were held in Connecticut. The family would like to thank the multiple doctors and nurses at Hartford Hospital who cared for Al over the past eight months.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Al’s name to the PKD Foundation, PO Box 871847, Kansas City, MO 64187-1847 or online at For online condolences please visit
