Daddy enjoy your hunting trip that will last forever. We love you and miss you.

John C. Raubach died January 8, 2012 in Woodland, Ca.  He was 71 years old.  John was born to Clara (Pena) Raubach and Edward Raubach on March 5, 1940 in Sacramento, Ca. He spent the last few years of his life living in the country in Woodland, Ca.

John lived almost his entire life in Yolo County.  He knew all of the back roads and favorite hunting spots.  He loved to hunt and fish and was always out to catch the big fish or  bag another elk, deer or wild pig.  He was usually seen wearing camouflage as his everyday attire.  John loved taking his kids and his grandkids fishing.  There are many pictures of his children and or grandchildren standing next to some giant fish he caught.  He loved being outdoors, and growing things.  If he wasn’t involved in farming, he was growing a vegetable garden that could feed half the town.


John grew up in Davis and was the last of his siblings(Ed Raubach, Jesse Raubach, Lucy Ann Raubach and Felipa Raubach) to pass.  He grew up on B street in Davis when B street was on the edge of town. Growing up, his neighbors were literally his cousins.  There were many adventures with his siblings and cousins raising wild animals, milking goats, and riding donkeys in the parade.


John also loved motorcycles, big trucks and boats.  He owned  several Harley Davidson motorcycles and many four wheel drive pick-ups. He even owned several boats, even though he did not know how to swim. He also loved canning salsa, making olives and pickles.  He loved to making anything spicy, spicy pickles, green beans and of course salsa.


John worked  in areas that he loved.  He worked at UCD agronomy warehouse, driving tractor for local farmers, his own garage door company and finally as a truck driver.  He always worked hard and loved the big trucks.  John’s buddies were outdoorsmen too.  They all loved to swap hunting, fishing and shooting tales.  John had many good friends that he knew his whole life. 


John is survived by his four children: Nori Raubach-Lindberg and her husband Mike Lindberg of Davis, Jonathan Paul Raubach of San Diego, Robert and his wife Michelle Raubach of West Sacramento, and Barclay and his wife Casey(Medlock) Raubach of Woodland.  John especially enjoyed hanging out with his grandkids, Sarah Lindberg, Marissa Lindberg, Cody Raubach, Sierra and Lauren Raubach.


His family would love to invite friends and family to John’s Birthday party on March 4, 2012 at Plainfield Station on Road 98 in Davis.  Stop by between 1 and 4 PM and toast John.  Please contact Nori Raubach-Lindberg if you plan on attending. 530 400-9913

"To John, may you rest in peace now. Thank you John for all your visits and concerns while I was going through cancer surgery. I'm sorry you missed your Alaska trip in your new Dodge diesel but now you can just float around over Alaska and enjoy the thoughts of hunting & fishing there. See you again someday when I kick the bucket! Love, Judy"

"I remember as a little girl, spending a lot of time with Nori roaming the fields of their Davis ranch.  John was always busy, working extremely hard to maintain that ranch.  I haven't seen him or Nori for many years, as I moved east, but I have very fond memories of him and his family.  It is so very hard to see a parent or family member pass on, but John leaves behind a wonderful legacy."
