This patent was owned by my Uncle, Albert Floyd Old. Which now has passed away. I was interested in who is the owner now?

Seems like it used to be owned by Solite Corp, but old patents expire 17 years after grant or 20 years from filing, whichever greater. This means that everyone has been free to use it since 1979.
