A devoted husband, father and grandfather, Pete went to be with the Lord peacefully in his home at the age of 70 after a 10 month struggle with transverse myelitis and numerous complications that followed.
Born in Hamilton County on March 25, 1953 to Ernst Joseph Staubach and Mary Barbara (Verdin) Staubach, he was the fourth of eight children. Survivors include Deanna Lynn (Hague) Staubach cherished wife of 39 years (05.26.84), three adored sons and daughters in law, John A. Staubach (Christy), David A. Staubach (Katie), and Mark D. Staubach (Taylor), four precious grandchildren, Adam, Ethan, Ember and Ava, two caring brothers, Stephen Staubach and Andrew Staubach and five caring sisters, Maryanne Staubach, Monica Staubach, Joan Staubach, Ellen Staubach, Angela Hammer, and many extended family members and friends whom he treasured.
As a lifelong Cincinnati resident, Pete graduated from Purcell Marian High School and then attended the University of Cincinnati, majoring in history, as well as being enrolled in the University of Cincinnati College - Conservatory of Music. He retired from the Kroger Company after 40 years of dedicated service.
Pete's cheerful, easy-going, helpful and generous personality poured into the lives of all who knew him. He was actively involved in the churches he attended, having the roles of Board Member, Nursery Director, Children and Teen Sunday School Teacher, Music Leader. As an accomplished musician (guitarist), music arranger, singer, and volunteer music teacher, he relished lifting up his Lord in song and was a member of the Calvary Gospel Quartet for several years. Most currently, he had become a member of Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. Pete was also a faithful volunteer all of his life for ongoing community outreach ministries and programs, and a mentor and math tutor for numerous students in the Cincinnati Public Schools.
He was an avid bicyclist, touring all over Ohio, a railway enthusiast, Ohio history buff, and had a great passion for genealogy. As a nature enthusiast, Pete enjoyed fishing, canoeing, and observing the weather. He was known to be a collector and lover of books (having gathered an estimated 10,000).
Pete enjoyed life to the fullest, but his greatest satisfaction was making memories with his four grandchildren who brought him so much joy. He will be remembered for his sweet smile, gentleness, kindness and his faithfulness to the Lord, his family and his community. It has been his greatest hope and prayer for all who knew him to put their faith in Jesus, so that all of us will someday be together again in our heavenly home.
