Lester Andrew "Les" Huber, 86, Centerville, passed away July 20, 2013.
He was born Nov. 10, 1926, in Burkettsville, to Leo and Olga Huber. His wife of 48 years, Betty, is deceased.
He is survived by his son, Andrew Huber of Bloomfield, Conn.; brothers, Marvin (Florence) Huber of Minster, Alfred (Marilyn) Huber of Dayton, Harold Huber of Dayton and Ralph (Lorraine) Huber of Katy, Texas; sisters, Jean (Dan) Schmidt of Hamilton, Gladys (Luke) Kremer of Dayton; brother-in-law, Fred (Kay) Wint of New Breman; sister-in-law, Ann Huber of Dayton; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Carol Wint.
He graduated from St. Henry High School, where he was on the varsity basketball team and served as president of his senior class. He served his country in the U.S. Army. He was stationed in Oklahoma. He earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Dayton and served a long and diversified career with Frigidaire in Dayton. He was especially fond of his last few years there, where one of his responsibilities was producing multiple conferences, award ceremonies and banquets honoring high achievers. It was reported that those were "some parties." He loved being a member of Sycamore Creek Country Club, where he was a fixture for any live musical entertainment, and enjoyed entertaining family and friends at "the Club." After retirement, he enjoyed traveling the United States and staying at different bed and breakfasts with his wife, Betty. They took these travel opportunities to visit with their son, Andrew, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He enjoyed spending time with their young families and the next generation to follow. He always found time for golf in his later years, eagerly waiting the days he volunteered at Yankee Trace Golf Course. He also found great fulfillment in the time he spent volunteering at St. Elizabeth Hospital. The last several years of his life were spent at The Wellington of Dayton, where he was cared for with compassion. At the end of his life, he was surrounded by the love of his son, his brothers, Alfred "Fred" Huber and Harold Huber, sisters, and other relatives. They were all able to say goodbye and wish him Godspeed.
Services will be 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Henry Catholic Parish in Dayton, with a reception to follow.
Memorial donations may be given to the Alzheimer's Association, Dayton.
