Richard Raymond Raub
3/16/1926 - 10/28/2012



Richard Raymond Raub, 86 of Auburn, Calif., died peacefully on October 28, 2012 after a battle with cancer. Dick was born in Zanesville, Ohio on March 16, 1926. His parents, Earl and Pauline (Babcock) Raub, and sister, Paulina Maxson, preceded him in death.
Dick proudly served his country in World War II as an army surgical technician aboard the USS Huddleston, transporting wounded G.I.s from Great Britain and Germany back home to the United States.
After the war, Dick went back to finish his high school senior year in Ohio at Mt. Vernon Academy. He graduated in 1947, along with his classmate and sweetheart, Yvonne Butterton-Longo. Yvonne became Dick's 2nd wife 50 years later in 1997 after their spouses passed away. Before settling down, Dick and Yvonne spent time driving across the U.S. in their motorhome, from California to Florida, visiting family and old school friends. After moving to Heather Glen, CA, Dick spent time volunteering at Weimar Health Center in the printing department. The last several years Dick volunteered 2 days a week at Amazing Facts in Roseville, CA engraving names on Bibles.
Dick is survived by his wife, Yvonne; his sister, June Ayer, of Texas; his son, Rick and wife, Stacy; his daughter, Lori and husband, Lonnie Walls; his grandchildren: Kristin, Cheryl, Ryan, Jessica, Tyler, and Christopher; and two great-grandchildren, MacKenzie and William.
Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial service to celebrate Dick's life at the Auburn Seventh-day Adventist Church, 12225 Rock Creek Road in Auburn on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at 4 p.m. A graveside service and internment will also be held at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, 5810 Midway Rd., Dixon, Calif., on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 11 a.m.
