Peter C. Taub, age 68, passed away on September 23, 2011 at home surrounded by family. For the past sixteen years he regarded his cancer as a mere inconvenience, just another problem to be solved. He was preceded in death by parents, John B. and Sylvia Taub and stepmother, Faye Taub. He is survived by his wife, Cathy; daughters, Emily (Orlay) Alonso-Taub, Stephanie (Jon) Fox and Katie Taub; sons, Jacob and Gabriel Taub; brother, William (Lucie) Schwartz; grandchildren, Sam, Teddy and Sally Fox, and Sofia Alonso-Taub. Peter was chairman of Atlas Industrial Contractors, Inc. He acquired Atlas Transfer Company 30 years ago and grew it into a nationally recognized industrial contracting company. It was his honor to serve on the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital Foundation Board. He also valued and supported the work of several non-profit organizations, including Flying Horse Farms, the United Way of Central Ohio, Columbus Jewish Federation, and Women’s American ORT. Peter was born in New York City and grew up in Miami, Florida. He attended Miami Beach High School and was graduated from the University of Miami in 1964. He was the quintessential renaissance man, who had a zest for life. He most enjoyed his time spent with family and friends, sharing his passions for snow skiing, golf, scuba, any water sport... and of course The Ohio State Buckeyes. Funeral services will be held 1:30pm on Sunday, September 25 at TEMPLE ISRAEL, 5419 E. Broad St. with Rabbi Harold Berman and Rabbi Misha Zinkow officiating. Burial will follow at Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens – Temple Israel section. Shiva will be observed at the Taub residence on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at 7:00 PM.
