Obituary for ALBERT HENRY CICCEL, SR.

Albert entered this life on August 19, 1929 to the late Henry and Lula (Smith) Ciccel of Muskogee, Oklahoma. He was preceded in death by a brother Earl Cissel of Tulsa, OK; and two sisters Manervie Watts (Columbus) of Muskogee, OK, and Hettie Mae Reed (Alonzo) of Tulsa, OK. Albert received Christ and was baptized at an early are, at Dean's Chapel Baptist Church, in Muskogee, OK. Albert transitioned gently and quietly from this earth into eternal rest on October 17, 2018 at his home in Huntingtown, Maryland.

He graduated from Manual Training High School in 1950. While attending Manual, he was studious, a serious football player, and he was quite popular. He attended Texas College in Tyler, until he sustained a football injury. In 1953, he moved to Wichita, Kansas where he remained for about 25 years. In 1978, Albert graduated from Wayland Baptist College with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.

As a youth, he attained the rank of Star Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. His dedication to serve youth, as an adult leader, began in 1953 where he organized his first Boy Scout Troop at Tabernacle Baptist Church, Wichita, KS. Since then, he served scouting on many levels. He organized several Troops and Packs, and held positions such as: Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Committee Chair, and as an Assistant District Executive for the Inner-City District, Wichita, KS. He received numerous training awards, citations, honors, and recognition such as: Distinguished Service Awards, District Awards of Merit, Distinguished Scouter A ward, and the Baden Powell A ward. In 1973, he was presented Scouting's highest honor, the Silver Beaver by the Quivira Council, KS. In 1982, he completed his "Ticket" for Wood Badge and acquired his third bead as Assistant Wood Badge Course Director in 1985 at Camp Perkins, Texas. In 1984, he was tapped-out in the Order of the Arrow, Wichita Lodge 35 and became a member of the Brotherhood in 1994 with WIPIT Lodge 470, Western Shore District in southern Maryland. He held a Master of Commissioner Science from the Commissioner College, Last Frontier Council, in Oklahoma. In 1993, he served on staff of the National Jamboree at Fort AP Hill, Virginia. In 2005, Albert had the opportunity to visit the former home and gravesite of Scouting's founder Lord Baden Powell near Nyeri, Kenya, one of the highlights of his many travels.

Since 1977, he has been an active member of District's Commissioner Corps serving the Wichita District - Northwest Texas Council, and the Southern Maryland and the Western Shore District of the National Capital Area Council, Bethesda, MD.

Albert began his professional career in Wichita, KS and continued with college courses while working first for Boeing Aircraft Company as a sealer and stress tester on the B-52 Wing Team, and then for Cessna Aircraft Co. as a structural engineer for their commercial and military divisions. In 1991, while on travel at Wright Patterson Air Force Base Aircraft Museum in Ohio, he noticed his stamp-of-approval on the nose section of an A-3 7 aircraft that he had been the construction crew chief in the 1960' s.

For a change of pace, in 1973, he moved to Wichita Falls, Texas where he worked for PPG Industries as design draftsman and mechanical engineer until he retired in 1992. In 1981 he was recognized as Citizen-of-the-Year by the industry for outstanding community service and leadership.

In 1992, he and his wife moved to her home in Huntingtown, MD. He was a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church of Annapolis where he served as Greeter. He was an active member of NOMADS of Annapolis, and Mu Rho Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated, and recipient of several awards including its highest award, the Omega Man of the Year.

Albert was not a lazy man and always busy with a project. He had many hobbies, such as woodworking: building cabinets and boxes, fishing, tinkering, and travel.

He leaves to cherish his memory: his wife of 39 years De Carlo (Jones) Ciccel; one son, Albert Ciccel, Jr. of Ward, Arkansas; one daughter, Michelle Harris of Fort Worth, TX; six grandchildren: Tamika Singleton-Davis (William) Norfolk, VA; Simone Antonette Blagg (Garan) Sherwood, AR; Kelson Harris (Jessica) Moyock, NC; Sean Albert Ciccel, Fort Walton Beach, FL; Alwin Henry Ciccel, Austin, TX, and Sydni Thomas of Fort Worth, TX; father-in-law Phillip Jones, Sr. of Huntingtown, MD; four brothers-in-law: Phillip Jones, Jr. (Monica Noel) and Thomas Jones of Huntingtown, MD; Sylvannus Jones (Bethany) Killeen, TX; Darryl Jones of Crisfield, MD; one sister-in-law, Jean Gray (Carroll) of Huntingtown, MD; seven great granddaughters, and two great grandsons. He is fondly remembered by many loving cousins, nieces and nephews, and a host of friends.
