Obituary/Notice

Kenneth D. Straub age 71, of Millcreek passed away on Friday September 11, 2020 at AHN St Vincent Hospital. He was born on September 28, 1948 son of the late David and Audrey P. (Wolf) Straub. 

Ken attended McDowell Schools before entering the U.S. Army and serving our country during the Vietnam War. When returning home he began working at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Erie and worked his entire career, over 30 years, supporting and raising his family.

 He was a big man with an even bigger heart, and would do anything for anyone. He would make you laugh and not realize he was being funny. He loved the Yankees and put up with the Brown’s (as a diehard fan). Ken also loved doing word search puzzles, loved going to classic car shows with Andrea, and as well their frequent visits to the peninsula.  Many will miss his peanut butter cookies but not as much as we all will miss him.

He is preceded in death by his parents and his sister Carol McManus.

 Ken is survived by his wife of 9 years, Andrea Ann (Hudack) Straub, son Geoff (Meghan) Straub, daughter Amie Straub, stepsons Thomas and Jeffrey Nowling, brothers Donald (Jeanette), Thomas (Laurie), step brother David (Nicole) Straub and grandchildren Abby and Brody Straub, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. Ken is further survived by his beloved rescue dog Trixie who has been a faithful friend and companion for the last two years.
