Paul E. Raub, Jr., born to Paul E. Raub, Sr. and June M. Lord on January 25, 1947, died on January 8, 2024.  Paul endured a long journey of Alzheimer’s that took his beautiful life, He was a very gentle, sweet man before and throughout this journey.  He was always liked wherever he was and always had a smile for everyone he met.  Paul was married to his soulmate, Jeannie Sindledecker, on June 23, 1966, in Niles, OH.  They had two beautiful children, Pauline and Allen.  In the end, Alzheimer’s took Paul from us, but he continues to live on in all of us.

He graduated from McKinley High School in Niles, OH, before enlisting in the U.S. Navy.  He had an amazing career, retiring as a Senior Chief Petty Officer after 26 years of faithful service.  He was blessed in that his wife and children were always able to travel with him throughout his career to all areas of the world.  Upon retiring from the U.S. Navy, Paul went back to school, attending Youngstown State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering.  He then rejoined the workforce for his second career.

Paul enjoyed building things, fishing, gardening, camping, board games, hiking, pets, and traveling to see new adventures.

He leaves behind his wife of 57 years; daughter, Pauline Raub Phoenix; son, Allen Raub; daughter-in-law, Kristin Raub, six grandchildren, Patrick, Alec, Zack, Hannah, Heidi, Tara, and ten great-grandchildren.  He also leaves behind his sisters, Patricia Lauer and Barbara Post, sister-in-law, Cris Raub; brothers, Frank and Rex Raub, and brothers-in-law, Art Gill and Bob Post.

Paul will be greatly missed here on earth, but he is at peace in heaven, where the angels welcomed him with his radiant peaceful soul.  He is now joining his parents, sister, Jeanne Gill, brother, Karl Raub, sister-in-law, Linda Raub, and son-in-law, Michael Phoenix.
