Albert "Al" Kilgore Obituary

Albert “Al” E. Kilgore, 74, of Nashua, New Hampshire, passed away at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack, New Hampshire on January 10, 2024 with his family by his side.

Al was born on October 25, 1949 in South Paris, Maine to the late Gerald and Muriel (Paine) Kilgore.

Albert was a graduate of the Oxford Hills High School class of 1968. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1969 and proudly served in the Vietnam War, returning to marry his longtime sweetheart, Judy Tyler, in 1970. Together they settled in Nashua to raise their family.

Al retired from Sanders Associates and BAE Systems with 23 years of employment. In later years he would work at Premier Industries in Hudson, New Hampshire and Calcomp Industries. However, the proudest job was being a member of the Army National Guard, B Battery in Nashua, where he made many great friends who loved and supported him to his very last day.

Al loved playing the lottery and scratch tickets. In his younger years he enjoyed snow skiing and sailing with his father-in-law, Stan Tyler. He was a member of the Sport Parachute Club while stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Above all else he was a devote family man who loved them all dearly.

In addition to his wife Judy, Al is survived by his two sons Kevin Kilgore and his wife Amy of Wilton, and Jeffrey Kilgore and his wife Mandy of Nashua, his five grandchildren Alaina Lanzarotto and her husband Tryston, Brianna Wilson and her husband Aaron, Kaylin Kilgore, Taryn Kilgore, and Bryce Kilgore, one great grandson Carter Kilgore, his seven siblings Gary Kilgore, Dennis Kilgore and his wife Jean, Peter Kilgore and his wife Sharon, Ronnie Kilgore, Sherry and her husband Mike, Penny Allen and her husband Charlie, and Barry Kilgore and his wife Tammy,  and his close friend Earl Dwire, as well as several nieces and nephews.
