Joe Douglas Raska of Corpus Christi, TX, passed away on Saturday, July 3, 2021, in Austin, TX. He had fought a long, courageous battle after complications from foot surgery.
Doug graduated from Agua Dulce High School in 1991, then earned his degree in Mechanical Engineering from UTSA.

Doug is survived by his mother, Dianne Raska; sister, Kelli (Dan) Hughes; and four special nephews, Peyton, Henry, Gabriel, and Cohen (Coco) Hughes; and two furry friends, Sheila and Ralphie.
