Albert Phillip Postar, 80, husband of former Marion resident Marsha (Childs) Postar, died May 21 at the couple’s home in Lubbock, Texas.
Born Dec. 4, 1938, in St. Louís to Joseph Loeb and Lottie (Zimring) Postar, he attended school in Granite City, Illinois, and graduated in 1960 with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Central Methodist College and in 1965 with a doctor of optometry degree from the University of Houston.
A life master of bridge, he was only 37 points away from becoming a diamond life master when his health declined.
In 1999, he married Marsha Childs, who survives. Other survivors include sons David and Michael of Lubbock; daughter Susan Bartol of Plano, Texas; step-daughter Stacey Strasser Rogers of Lubbock; sister Beverly Postar of Granite City; and nine grandchildren.
His ashes will be placed in Maegan Bay, St. Thomas.
