He was also preceded in death by his wife of 67 years, Blanche Corrine (Wilson) Comer; and his son, Albert L. Comer Jr.  Mr. Comer was the last member of his immediate family.

In 1983, Mr. Comer retired from the Kelly-Springfield Tire Company, having been a machinist by trade.

Surviving are his daughter, Sandra K. Miles and husband  William, Cumberland; daughter-in-law, Judy Hout, Fort Ashby, W.Va.; his very special grandson, Troy Grabenstein, who lived with his “Pap Pap,” and helped care for him. Without Troy’s love and care, we could not have kept Dad at home.
