Albert Louis Protin, 86, of Charleroi, passed away peacefully on August 16, 2023. Born in Charleroi on August 27, 1936, Al was the son of the late Louis and Rose (Savarno) Protin. 


Al graduated from Charleroi High School as a member of the class of 1954 and remained a lifelong Cougar fan. He served his country honorably in the United States Army at Fort Knox and later continued his education at the University of Pittsburgh where he received his Bachelor of Science degree.


Known as Pap to his many grandchildren, Al was a member of Saint Andrew the Apostle – Charleroi Site, the Charleroi Knights of Columbus, the Charleroi Belgium Club and a longtime member of the Elks. Al enjoyed his many trips to Disney World, his collection of Disney memorabilia, sharing his love of model trains with his grandsons, rooting for the Steelers, Pirates and Penguins, and telling tales of his adventures with anyone willing to listen. In his later years, Al enjoyed participating in the many activities held at the Bethel Square Senior Apartments.
