Albert Heer was born in Petersburg where his father Jacob was a carpenter. He followed in his father's footsteps when he moved to Waterloo, becoming a carpenter and operating a building contracting business. He served in the Canadian army during World War One. He was much interested in local politics as a member of council in the 1930s. He was on the commission that built the new K-W hospital opened in 1952 and was an advocate for the Waterloo Memorial Arena opened in 1947. One of his most volatile topics while on Council was the question of Daylight Saving Time. In 1936 he and others in council succeeded in rejecting daylight time and during that summer clocks in Kitchener and Waterloo differed by 1 hour.
