Aloysius Raebel

Aloysius Anthony Raebel, affectionately known as “Al”, “Grandpa Al” and “Big Al”, passed peacefully on April 29, 2016 in Pueblo, Colorado, surrounded by family, three days after of his 92nd birthday. He now joins his wife Jean A. Raebel, in Heaven, and enjoying his “toddy” and she her glass of wine. Al was a strong but gentle man. He could repair anything on this earth. If a part was not to be found, he would make one. He was a very creative, intelligent, hardworking man, without needing recognition for all of his accomplishments. He provided a wonderful life for his wife and five children. Al retired from the American Association of Railroads, Pueblo Test Center. Al and Jean raised their family in the precious home they built on Glenn Drive in Waukesha, Wisconsin, before moving to Pueblo in 1973. Al loved Colorado. It was his “Rocky Mountain High”. Al loved John Denver’s songs about Colorado, and always said they sounded like his son, Bob, was singing them. Al was preceded in death by his beloved wife; his parents, William and Rosalia Strosina Raebel; his mother-in-law, Viola Gosenheimer Winohradsky Zahn; his sisters, Mildred and Justina and his brothers, William, Julian, Valentine, Martin and Walter. He will be deeply missed by his loving children, William,of Oconomowoc, WI, Robert (Beth), of Glenview, IL, Donna (Michael) Carlson, of Waukesha, WI, Richard (Sandra), of Pueblo, CO, and Elizabeth (Robert) Fox, of Naperville, IL; his grandchildren, Jason (Emily) Raebel, Alicia (John) Raebel-Mazanec, Michael (Evelyn) Raebel, Matthew Raebel, Joshua Raebel, Amanda Lee Raebel, Bethany Raebel, Melissa (Michael) Johnston, Marlene Carlson Mounce, Jessica Fox, James Fox and Reagan Fox. Al was the proud great-grandpa of James, William and Oliver Raebel-Mazanec, Owen and Kiera Johnston, Lola Jean Mounce and Logan and Simon Michell. In keeping with Al’s wishes, there will be no public service and the body will be cremated. Al wishes all those who loved him celebrate his life, and good times shared, not mourn his loss. Always “Take it as it comes”. We love and miss you Dad. You always made us so proud! Online condolences at DavisMortuary.com.
