Leo Raab, 82 of Monroeville passed away Saturday, July 31, 2021 at The Hospice of Western Reserve Care Center in Cleveland. He was born May 31, 1939 in Elyria, Ohio and the eldest son of Earl and Mary (Downs) Raab of Wellington, Ohio.
After serving in the United States Army, Leo worked in the shipping department at American Crayon Company in Sandusky until his early retirement in 2002. After, Leo worked at Walmart in Sandusky and Monroeville Local Schools.
Leo was an avid horse lover and anything to do with farms, which led him to his latest “job” of helping Farmer Lee Jones of The Chef’s Garden and The Culinary Vegetable Institute. He was also a member of COSCA, the Ashland Paint and Plain Saddle Club and the Northern Ohio Miniature Horse Club, spending many years on the horse show circuit with his family.
His greatest joy was spending time with his granddaughter and attending her sporting events. He will forever be her guardian angel.
Leo is survived by his son, Mark (Stan Smith) Raab of Aurora, Ohio; granddaughter, Lilly Raab; brothers: Richard (Bernie) Raab, Kenneth Raab, and Keith (Cheryl) Raab; sister, Mary Nichols; sister-in-law, Janet Santana and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; in-laws Oscar and Lillian Krugman; his loving wife of 37 years, Carolyn (Krugman) Raab, and brothers-in-law Nicholas Santana and Larry Krugman.
A memorial gathering will be held on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 from 4-8 p.m. at Foos & Foos Funeral Service, 151 Yorkshire Place, Bellevue. Burial will be private at a later date.
