Vernon Laub Obituary

Vern Laub passed away peacefully in Anaheim, California on August 13, 2023, at the age of 89. Born in Santa Ana, California, Vern grew up to embody the virtues of intelligence, wisdom, and generosity, leaving a lasting impact on everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. Vern chose to serve his country honorably in the US Navy during the Korean Conflict by enlisting at the age of 17. After his service, he returned to California where he briefly worked with the Forest Service. After several years, he transitioned to the Pacific Telephone Company, where he worked diligently, ending his career as a respected engineer.

Vern was a dedicated family man, blessed with a loving wife, Liz Laub, whom he cherished for nearly 70 years. Their union was blessed with three children: James Laub (Anna), Mark Laub, and Catherine Bell. Vern was also a proud grandfather to Jarod (Elizabeth), Rebeca (Nathan), Steven (Yuka), Caitlin (Gabriel), Jessica (Juan), and Samuel (Angelina). His joy was further multiplied by his great-grandchildren: Wayne (Alicia), Victoria, Edward, Jonathan, Penelope, Adelynn, Charlotte, Carter, Gregory, Emily, and Harper.

Vern's interests were as varied as they were passionate. He was active with the Boy Scouts, camping, and hiking, and other activities that allowed him to share his love for nature with his children as they grew up. He gardened regularly with Liz and spent hours sharing stories with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was also a committed member of the Kiwanis Club and the Elks Lodge for several years, contributing significantly to his community. However, Vern's greatest passion was reading. He cherished his quiet time, often spent engrossed in a book, exploring new ideas and expanding his knowledge.

In remembrance of Vern, we celebrate a man who lived his life with purpose and passion, who served his country, and who dedicated himself to his family and community. His memory will live on in the hearts of those he left behind, and his legacy will continue to inspire generations to come. Vern Laub will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him.
