Richard Carl Baab and Mary Louise Baab, of Dover, are together forever.

Richard, 88, passed away on Saturday, March 21, 2020, in the Inn at Northwood Village. He was born June 18, 1931, at Stone Creek, Ohio to the late Reuben and Minnie (Regula) Baab.

Mary, 86, passed away on March 26, 2020, in the Inn at Northwood Village. She was born July 5, 1933, at New Philadelphia, Ohio to the late Hugh and Erma (Welfley) Bean.

The couple were married on June 30, 1956, and raised one son, Douglas. They were members of Community of Christ Church at New Philadelphia.

Richard was employed at Marsh Lumber for over 40 years. He was an avid fan of westerns and he also enjoyed watching NASCAR. Mary was an avid collector of antiques and Elvis items. She frequented garage sales and enjoyed eating out. Both of them however, enjoyed spending time with their family more than anything.

They are survived by their son and daughter-in-law, Douglas and Lisa Baab; their grandchildren, Kameron (Allie Van Dress) Baab and Kyle (Brittany) Baab and two great-grandchildren, Aiden Baab and Paislee Rennard.

Richard is also survived by a brother, Eugene (Rosa) Baab and a nephew, Ronald Baab.

Completing Mary’s family are two sisters, JoAnn Torgler and Sue Campbell; nieces and nephews, Susan (Paul) Morehead, Todd (Tiona) Campbell, April (Bryan) Byrne, J.T. (April) Torgler and Jamie (Marcie) Torgler and her best friend, Joan Zeigler.

In addition to her parents, Mary was preceded in death by a brother and sister-in-law, Robert and Catherine Bean; a nephew, Richard Bean and two brothers-in-law, John Campbell and Jerry Torgler.

Private family services will be held.

Doug and Family, I am very sorry for your loss. Your parents were so sweet. We had the pleasure of their company here at our home in Colorado years ago. They were traveling and my mom was here visiting. They even attended our son's football banquet with us, cheering him on! May God bless you and your family.
