Taub, Michael J.

October 15, 2016

DELMAR – Michael J. Taub, 58, passed away Saturday, October 15, 2016 with his wife by his side. His long and courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease may have claimed his body, but did not take away the spirit in which he lived. Born in 1958 to Eleanor (Shayevitz) and Arthur Taub, Michael and his partner Frank Allen successfully ran and operated Allen and Taub Plumbing and Heating for 25 years .Michael was a hard-working, honest and kind individual. His customers always came first. Not only did he enjoy the work that he did, he found much joy in the conversations (and sometimes sweet treats) that followed. Michael found the most pleasure in spending time with his family and friends. Many years were spent proudly watching his oldest daughter pitch a softball game and his youngest grasp a ribbon in an equestrian event. He loved Sunday dinners, backyard barbecues, holidays, playing ball with his furry friend “Maicee” and most of all his time spent on Cape Cod.
