STAUB, Richard “Dick” H.-USAF-Korean War Veteran

Richard H. Staub, 87, of Clearwater, Florida passed away on May 21, 2023 at his residence .  His services are Friday, June 16, 2023,  12:30 PM  at the Bay Pines VA National Cemetery, 10000 Bay Pines Blvd., Bay Pines, Florida 33744 with the Honor Guards from Mac Dill AFB “Honors and Ceremonial” Team and the American Legion Post 273 Honor Guard, officiating.

He was born in Beaver, Pennsylvania on February 25, 1936. He was proceeded in death by his parents Charles & Cora Mae Staub. US Air Force for 4 years and after that a furniture salesman for Maas Brothers for over 25 years and then continuing selling furniture for many years after they closed. Wife: Delores Staub Daughters: Lesley Yando (John Yando), Synda Skeldon (Steve Skeldon),Corie Spence (Bean Spence) Grand Children: Lucas Yando, Amera Howard (Dillon Howard), Ethan Spence, Shane Spence, Luke Skeldon & Aubrey SkeldonGreat Grand Children: Ezekiel Howard & Juniper Howard.

Dad had the gift of speaking, he never met a stranger and loved to talk to anyone and everyone. His opening line was “Hi their young man” no matter if that person was 20 or 90 years old. To family his line was “so what’s new with you” and he genuinely wanted to hear everything you had to say. He loved his family and invited friends and coworkers…really anyone to join any function we had. He was a “dad” to many earning special nicknames: Stubby or Buckie.

He would do anything for his children including digging a hole with Lesley for a pool in our backyard that took months. Giving away the dirt and asking for contributions back years later when he filled it in.

He had a great love for animals and had many beloved dogs & cats throughout his life – Leroy Brown, Max, and his last love Roxy to name a few.

He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
