September 14, 1937 - May 15, 2021
Raymond Emil Tubel went to our dear Lord on May 15th after an extended illness. He was born in Jacksonville on September 14, 1937 and was the eldest son of Emil N. Tubel and Lottie Mallem Tubel. He is survived by his wife of 64 years Patricia Harvey Tubel, his high school sweetheart. To Raymond, his sweetheart was “Tricia” to most she was “Pat”. They both attended Bishop Kenny High School where he was elected Student Body President, President of the Student Council, and King of Homecoming in his senior year. They have been truly blessed in their marriage, family, and career. Raymond was predeceased by their daughter Bernadette Tubel Robison in 2020. They have two sons, Raymond Emil Tubel, Jr. (Kerri) of Jacksonville and Wayne Patrick Tubel (Randy Weiner) of Marietta. Raymond is also survived by his step mother, Dorothy Tubel of Jacksonville, his brother, Edmund George Tubel of Charlotte, and his half-sister Joan Stephens (Mark) of Jacksonville. Raymond is also survived by their four grandchildren Katie Tubel Gabor (Mike), Raymond E. Tubel III (Alexis), Kristy Tubel Trbakovic (Haris), and Joseph C. Robison. Also missing their Ghidi are their seven great grandchildren, Michael, Katelyn, and Jacob Gabor, Raymond IV and Andi Tubel, and Emir and Adam Trbakovic ages from 13 years to 2 months. Raymond and Pat have owned and operated Tubel’s Goodyear stores together for 43 years and are blessed to have long term and loyal managers and employees. Prior to operating their own Goodyear stores, Raymond worked at numerous positions with corporate Goodyear. He left corporate Goodyear in 1978 when he was an Assistant District Manager in Knoxville, TN. He returned home to Jacksonville to open his first Goodyear Store in the Southside. He was a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus, a lifelong Gator football fan, and a member of the Army National Guard in his youth. Raymond had a great devotion to our Blessed Mother and Her rosary during his life. Visitation will be held at Corey Kerlin Funeral Home at 940 Cesery Blvd on Friday May 21st from 5-7 with a rosary at 6:30 led by Father Jim O’Neal. A funeral mass will be held at the Basilica of The Immaculate Conception 121 E.
