Frederick A. Paluba, 90, husband of Marjorie M. (Miller) Paluba, of Barto, passed away at home on Sunday November 21, 2021.
Born in Philadelphia, Frederick was the son of the late Frederick F. and Helen M. Paluba.
Frederick was a 1950 graduate of Roman Catholic High School and went on to attend Pierce Business School in 1951. He was self employed from 1967 until his retirement. Frederick also drove a school bus for Boyertown School District. He was a Navy Reservist from 1949 until 1957 during the Korean War.
In addition to his wife of sixty years, Frederick is also survived by three daughters: Lisa Ann Paluba, Theresa A. (Paluba) Gift, wife of Tom, and Susan M. (Paluba) Edwards, wife of Chris, as well as four grandchildren: Nathan Gift, husband of Becky, Sean Gift, husband of Jaime, Erin Edwards and Nicholas Edwards as well as one great grandchild, Adelaide Gift.
Fred’s endless curiosity, charming wit, and strong sense of adventure were with him until his final days. An avid hunter and fisherman, he always found a home in nature. His many passionate interests could not compare, however, with the love and devotion he held for his family. His three adoring daughters were the light of his life, followed by his grandchildren. In recent months, he found great delight in time spent with his first great granddaughter. The warmth of Fred’s bright personality and boundless love for his family will never fade. It serves as a comfort to all those who knew him in his absence.
Services are private at the request of the family.
In lieu of flowers, mass cards or a donations to Most Blessed Sacrament Church in Bally, PA are welcome in Frederick’s memory.
