Obituary of Csaba Barabas
Csaba went to be with our Lord Monday, September 19, 2022. He will be remembered by his wife and best friend of 25 years, Rebecca; two children Olivia and Liam; mother, Irma Barabas; sister, Ilona Kovecsi (Zoltan); brother, Zoltan Jr. (Jennifer); mother- and father-in-law, Thomas and Susan Karsies; sister-in-law, Karen Karsies; extended family members, nieces, nephews, and friends. Csaba was a devoted husband, father, friend, soccer coach, and mentor to many. He was a true family man and enjoyed camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, golfing, and soccer with his family and friends. Csaba was a skilled woodworker and recently enjoyed learning HVAC. His passion was playing and coaching soccer. Csaba, along with a couple of close friends, founded a local nonprofit travel soccer club and he used it to share his knowledge and love of the game with so many. Many call him so much more than coach. He was a "unicorn." His smile was contagious, his heart was enormous, his generosity unending, and his faith in our Lord and Savior was strong.
