Albert M. Postus, 87, a former employee of Case Construction Equipment and an athlete who coached high school football for 20 years, died of lung cancer Aug. 24.

Postus graduated from Villanova University in 1944 and was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles, who traded him to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he put his career on hold to serve in the Marine Corps during World War II. Postus then played halfback for a season, but an injury ended his career as a professional athlete.

From 1948 to 1968, he coached football at St. Thomas More, West Philadelphia Catholic and Monsignor Bonner High Schools. After retiring from coaching in 1968, he worked as a salesman for Spatola Wines and as a sales manager for Case Construction Equipment until 1980.

Postus enjoyed sports and playing with his grandchildren.

Postus is survived by sons Michael and Christopher; daughters Jacquelyn Aman, Kathleen McAndrews, Suzanne Lacroix and Marie; 17 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren. His wife of 34 years, Marie Aylmer Postus, died in 1976.

Memorial donations may be made to St. Thomas More Alumni Association, Box 294, Drexel Hill, Pa. 19026.
