Paul Maurice Loubier, age 72 of Tipp City, passed unexpectedly on May 19, 2023, at 5:46pm at Kettering Medical Center. Born May 16, 1951, in Lewiston, Maine, he was preceded in death by his father Louis Philipe-Lawrence (Larry) and mother Marie Lucille (Lou). He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Katrina, his 3 children Brittany Loubier-Vervisch (Carl) of Tampa, FL, Chris Loubier (Anne) of Cookeville, TN, and Katie Loubier (Doug Hicks) of Beavercreek, OH, and one grandson, Brooks Loubier, who was the light of his life. Additionally, he is survived by his brother Dan (Nancy) of Bonita Springs, FL, his sister Diane Hull of Unity, ME, his sister Patricia Sizemore of Spring Grove, PA, and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was a 1970 graduate of Waterville High School. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 1975 from Nasson College where he played hockey. He began his career with Dunkin’ Donuts in Maine and went on to manage many restaurant units for Wendy’s and Denny’s. In 1988 he opened his own restaurant, Tipp O’ the Town Family Restaurant, which welcomed travelers and residents at exit 68 in Tipp City for over 29 years. He considered many of his longtime employees and customers close friends. On May 16th he shared with his daughter how proud he was of so many of his young employees who went on to help people by becoming nurses, social workers, and even a lawyer and a dentist. All of his children grew up to become “helpers”: two teachers and an athletic trainer.
He was a member of the Miami Valley Visitors and Convention Bureau and Tipp City Chamber of Commerce. Paul was very giving, sponsoring local youth sports teams and the Mum Festival for years and regularly donating blood. His final act was donating his lungs, liver, and tissues to save the lives of others.
His family was his greatest treasure and he loved spending time with his own family, mother, and siblings. He spent many happy hours at Norris Lake in Tennessee and Lake Winnecook in Maine. Paul will be fondly remembered for his love of surprises, his wonderful laugh, his giving nature, and his sense of humor.
