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.

Sincere sympathies to the family. Freddie was my godfather. I’m glad I got to see him in 2017 at my Mom’s funeral. He was always a delight to talk to. A life well lived.
We are so very sorry. We are praying for your family.
We were so saddened in learning that Fred was gone. He always loved kids!!!! My girls always wanted to trick-or-treat so they could see you both!!! Be Strong!!!
So deeply sorry for your loss. I loved Fred like a brother which he truly was. I will miss our shared love of aviation. I love you all very much. ~ Brub and Unk
My sincere condolences to Marge, Lisa, Theresa , Susan and the entire family. Fred, Marge and “the girls” were my next door neighbors for several years while I was in grade school. Yet, in the five decades that passed since then, I’ve thought about Fred, remembering his friendliness and kindness toward my family and the interest he took in sharing his love of fishing and the outdoors with me. I was 25 years his junior, but he always treated me with great respect and enthusiasm. I’ll remember him too for his independent spirit and true devotion to his family. God bless all.
Paluba Family. “Freddie” , as my Mom Margaret referred to your husband and Father, was a family member to the Spleen and Verbeke families. He was like a brother to my Mom. Their friendship over the many years will be cherished. With much sympathy, Victor Verbeke, Harleysville Pa.
we are very sorry about your loss.
Fred always was so humerous and
positive thinking . We think he smiled his whole life.
We are glad that we had the luck to get to know him.
You are in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time.
God bless you
