Early in life, Albert expressed an interest in pursuing a musical career, playing his guitar at various venues around the area. In the early 60’s he moved to Rock Hill, MO where he became a part owner of the Town & Country Music Center. Over the next 30 years he sold musical instruments to famous musicians across the country. He was commonly referred to as “Tex” Schroeder. In 1997 Tex retired from the music industry and moved back to Texas, residing at the Hermann Sons of Texas Retirement Center in Comfort, TX. He quickly developed close friends at the retirement center who also shared a love for music. Tex continued to play his guitar and entertain at several retirement homes in the San Antonio area. In 2018, he moved to Victoria TX to be close to his family. He resided at Greatwood Senior Living Community and continued to play his favorite guitar for the residence.
