Happy 103rd, Dr. Albert Gleason


Dr. Albert Gleason, of Winter Garden, was surrounded by many of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as he celebrated his 103rd birthday on Oct. 22.  

The party was held at the Winter Garden Restaurant and was attended by family and friends. 

Gleason came to the city to practice medicine after serving as a flight surgeon in Europe during World War II. He helped open West Orange Memorial Hospital in 1952 and sat on the original board of trustees. He retired in 2006 at age 92.
