Raymond D. Stueber, 84, a Park Falls/Green Bay resident passed away peacefully on Monday Sept 3rd 2018 at Dycora Transitional Living in Abbotsford where he resided the last two years due to the progression of Alzheimer’s.
Visitation will be held at 10:00 AM with a Funeral Mass at 11:00 AM on Friday, September 7th 2018 at St Anthony’s Catholic Church in Park Falls with Father Shaji Joseph Pazhukkathara officiating. Burial will follow at Nola Cemetery in Park Falls.
He was born (a twin) on October 4th 1933 in Park Falls, Wisconsin to Joseph and Elizabeth (Boyer) Stueber.
He attended St. Anthony’s Catholic Grade School and graduated from Park Falls Lincoln High School in 1951. After high school he continued his education in Wausau. His knowledge with shorthand landed him his first job which was with Chicago Northwestern Railroad (CNW) in Milwaukee. He worked there for 5 years and then transferred to Green Bay and continued to work for the Railroad for 25 years. CNW once again wanted Ray to move back to Milwaukee, however, Ray was well established in Green Bay and declined. Ray then worked for Brown Country Social Services and continued his education at UW-Green Bay with a degree in Language & Arts.
Raymond was a member of St. Francis Xavier Cathedral in Green Bay. He was a member and president of People-to-People Organization. People-to-People is a voluntary program where community members promote international understanding through direct people-to-people contacts. Its purpose is to enhance international understanding and friendship through educational, cultural and humanitarian activities with the exchange of ideas and experiences among peoples of different countries and diverse cultures. This best describes who and what our Uncle Ray was all about.
Raymond spoke several languages and traveled many countries developing friendships along the way. An interesting quote from Ray from his high school year book, “I’d rather be right, than President!” He was a kind and genuine man whose door was always open for anyone who needed a hand, as well as, for any stray cats! Ray’s love for cats followed him through the years.
He is survived by numerous nieces and nephews: James E. Stueber (Dawn), Mary Beth Luethmers (Howard), Ronald R. Stueber (Shelly), Renee B. Stueber, Ellen J. Fehrenbach (Brian), Lisa M. Morgan (Rick), Amy R. Abel (Chad), Joseph A. Stueber (Melanie), along with many great, and great-great nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by: his parents, Joseph and Elizabeth (Boyer) Stueber; two brothers, Arnold J. Stueber (Sally) and his twin Roman F. Stueber (Arlene); and one nephew, Arnold J. Stueber Jr.
