Mr. Straub’s ancestors as well as mine arrived in our community way back in the 1800’s...He told me as a child he remembers them speaking German to one another...I always enjoyed running into him as he always had stories to tell me...he was a touchstone to my of the only ones that knew of them from way back when. I will miss him and his smile. I want to express my sincere condolences to the family...A true Old Settler has gone to rest...may he rest well!

I was so sad to see news of Mr. Straub's passing. I also felt a warmth remembering the short time I knew him. The first time I ever walked up to a drill rig, fresh out of college, Mr. Straub took time aside to explain everything to me and give me some poignant safety tips. My deepest sympathy to the whole family, and prayers for God's peace and love to comfort you.

RL i wish you peace . This man was a great guy I'll miss him he gave me a job when I needed one and he didn't blink a minute you just said you're hired. Even when I was eight years old and he ran a Ground Pounder the cable rig he paid me a dollar a day before mud away from the hole back then he had black hair and used to smoke it was a funny old coot and I'm going to miss him.
