Algoma remembers Rabas

Many of the memories you have made in the City of Algoma is thanks to Jim Rabas, who passed away earlier this week at the age of 76. A business owner in the city, Rabas was known to support many local community organizations such as the Algoma Chamber of Commerce, Kewaunee County Historical Society, Agricultural Heritage Resources, and Community Improvement of Algoma. One of his larger efforts every year was organizing the Shanty Days in Algoma Parade, where his steam engine that took on the life of Thomas the Tank Engine was one of the many highlights. Algoma Chamber of Commerce Vice President Mark Kunkel says Rabas carried with him a great enthusiasm for the city and the void he leaves will be hard to fill.

Rabas is survived by his wife Dori, three siblings, three children, and four grandchildren. Friends may call at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on 4th Street, Algoma from 1:00 p.m. until the prayer service at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. You can read the full obituary here.
