Raymond Lubsen Obituary

Raymond G. Lubsen, 85, of Marlborough, died Friday, March 1, 2024, at Marlborough Hospital. He was the son of the late Ralph and Helen (Peters) Lubsen and husband to Shirley (Emond) Lubsen to whom he'd been married 60 years.

Besides his wife, Raymond is survived by his son James Lubsen and his wife Kathleen of Mashpee, his grandsons, Michael Lubsen and his wife Bella Kitzis of Florida and Jacob Lubsen of Arlington. He is also survived by his brother, Robert Lubsen of Nebraska, and sister, Carol Ojeski of Nebraska, and many other nieces, nephews, family members and friends.

Raymond was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to the New England area after enlisting in the US Navy.  He proudly served for five years, first stationed in Groton, Connecticut and then Portsmouth, NH, on the nuclear-powered submarine USS Thresher SSN 593.  After the Navy, Raymond worked as a draftsman at Raytheon and later as a precision sheet metal mechanic.

Raymond especially loved spending time with family and friends and attending grandsons Michael and Jacob's many soccer games.  He was an avid Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots fan and watched all the games.

One of Raymond's favorite pastimes was going for rides to western Massachusetts and along the New England coast, often towards Nubble Light in York Maine and Perkins Cove in Ogunquit.  He was also a talented woodworker, spending much of his time crafting items like furniture for friends and family and toys for his grandkids in his garage that doubled as a workshop.
