Albert Patrick Ahern, Jr.

October 31, 1962 — February 28, 2024

Biloxi

Albert Patrick Ahern, Jr., 61, lifelong resident of Biloxi, MS passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Wednesday, February 28, 2024.

Born on October 31, 1962, to parents Albert and Katie Ahern, he entered this world full of personality and as he liked to remind us all, good looks! Albert was humorous, mischievous, cunning and quite the charmer. He was a fierce protector of his four sisters and his brother, but he was also the brother who kept everyone on their toes and wondering what his next move would be. Growing up, Albert could be found on the baseball and football fields around St. Martin or cooling down in a creek or at the river with his friends. Albert had an infectious laugh and personality and he was voted Mr. St. Martin High School in 1981.

Albert loved being surrounded by family and friends. He was the “grill master”, the 4th of July firework show pyrotech, the backyard volleyball and three-legged race coach, the four corners dancing machine, the horseback riding Rhinestone Cowboy, and the "I can make that" guy in the family. He would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need, and he never expected anything in return. Albert leaves behind numerous friends and family members who will forever cherish the memories we've made with him over the years. 

Albert is preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Katie Ahern. Maternal grandparents Victoria and Curtis Parker, and paternal grandparents George and Juliette Ahern. 

He is survived by his son, Albert (Ashley) Ahern and his grandchildren Kaylee Jo, Conner, and Colin. His sisters, Rhondalyn Ahern, Jetty Lively, Joanie Ahern, and Dixie (Red) Seymour, and his brother Shawn (Celine) Ahern, who all tolerated his jokes and pranks for many years yet loved him fiercely. His nieces and nephews, Leah Puzz, Barry Puzz, Miguel Mallette, Brent Mallette, Keith Lively, Tori Wilson, Johnny Etherton, Katie Jordan, Brandon Ahern, Dusty Jordan, Dylan and Raquel Ahern, who all have many special memories with the uncle who made them laugh and spoiled them rotten. His lifelong best friends Anthony Desporte, Scott Derouen, Timmy Alley, and Morris Hit, who stood by his side through everything and who are the keepers to many inside jokes and secrets that only best friends need to know about. 

Our family truly appreciates all of the love and support we have received. We felt your love and prayers, and we cherish all of the stories and memories you all have shared with us. A special thank you to Dr. Hightower and Nurse Katie and his Hospice nurse, Lisa, for all of your professionalism, guidance, and care.
