Obituary

 Lloyd  (John)  Lauber  went  to  meet  Jesus  July  10,  2020  in  Summerfield  FL  due to complications  of  COPD  which  he  has  fought  for  many  years.  He was 75. Mr. Lauber  was born on  November  17,  1944  in  Redbud,  IL  to  Lloyd  John  Sr  and  Roma  Lauber.  He went to St. Phillip Catholic grade school and graduated from Assumption Catholic  Highschool. After graduation he went to Ranken Technical  School  and  received  a  certificate  in  Electrical. After graduating  from  Ranken  he  joined  the  Army. When he  was  eighteen  he  was  awarded  The  Carnegie  Hero  Award  for  saving  a  woman  who  had jumped  into  the  freezing  waters  of  the  Mississippi  River.  He threw his coat off  jumped  in  after  her and swam  seventy  feet  to  bring  her  back  to  the  shore. When  he  came  back  from  the  army  he  started  working  for  Granite  City  Steel  as  an  electrician.  John worked  his  way  up  to  management  at  the  steel  mill  becoming  Maintanence  and  Electrical  Manager. He worked for  the  steel  mill  for  forty  years.  Instead  of  retiring  John  decided  to  work  for  Sach’s Electric.  John  worked  on  many  projects  for  Sach’s  but  he  was  most  proud  of  his  work  on  launch  pad 41  which  is  the  Atlas  5  launchpad  at  Cape  Canaveral,  FL.

John  and  his  wife  retired  to  Stonecrest  Golf  Club  community  where  he  loved  playing  golf  and  the many  friends  he  formed  there.  We  will  all  miss  his  smile  and  jokes  and  May  God  keep  him  in  his hands. Mr  Lauber  is  survived  by  his  wife  Ruby  of  47  years;  two  brothers  Jerry  (Pam)  and  Jeff  (Joanne); six  children,  Pam  Pratt  (Steve),  Timothy  Lauber, Todd Peck  (Karen),  Leslie  Locker  (Gregory),  John  Lauber  (Andrea),  Kerri  Gruenenfelder  (Jon).  John  had fifteen  grandchildren Brandon, Joshua, Garret, Riley, Rachel, Donovan, Gabrielle, Sydney, Elizabeth, Dakota, Jakob, Shane, Cale, Aliyah, Timmy  and  four  great  grandchildren  Alex, Ben, Hazel,  and  Maverick. There will be a private ceremony at St.Marks Catholic Church next week for family. John will then be laid to rest on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 1030 am at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell Fl where family and friends are welcome to attend. Due to COVID 19 there will be no celebration of life, but the family would like to take this moment to Thank everybody for  there thoughts and prayers they have received over the past few weeks.

    Ruby, can’t really find the words to say at this time. Really loved the time that I had living next to you and John and especially golfing we had together and the swimming Carolyn with you and friends. Would love to have you stop by our home if ever you get up this way. Love you and will continue to keep you in our Prayers!!!
