HUEBNER, Herbert

March 22, 1966 – Winnipeg, Manitoba
April 5, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

Herb Huebner, beloved son of Renate Huebner of Chestermere, passed away on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at the age of 48 years surrounded by his loving family.

Herb was an honest, thoughtful and grateful person. With every interaction, Herb effortlessly found a way to touch your heart. Whether it was his wit, or his sense of humour, he had a gift that made your heart smile. He connected to each and every one of his family members and friends in a unique way. His presence made a difference in every life that he touched. He had a way to simplify lives by making love and joy a priority. With the warmth of a handshake, a thumbs up or a big smile, he always reminded us that the present moment is all we have; it needs to be cherished and treasured. Herb was the centre of his family’s world. He could always be counted on to be a never ending source of strength to his family and friends.

Herb is survived by his mom Renate; his sisters, Ingrid, Monica and Elke (Dave) Claughton; and his loving nieces and nephew, Sarah, Josie and Jordan. Herb was predeceased by his dad Herbert Sr.; his brother Werner; and his nephews, Scott, Cory and Stephen.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery.

    Rene, Monica, Ingrid and Elke. it is with such a heavy heart that I send you all my most deepest sympathy. Herb has and always will remain in my heart, along side the many funny and beautiful memories of our times together. Please take comfort from your dedication to Herb and the countless hours that you spend with him daily. Death could never take the memories of those times away from you. You and Herb had taught me so much. You allowed me to be part of your family while Herb was living at the Fanning, this alone opened my eyes to the many gifts that surrounded me daily and Herb was one of those gifts.

    With Much Gratitude and Love
    Darlene

  9. To the entire Huebner clan; I am so sorry to hear of your loss; I have been living in Edmonton and hadn’t heard of Herbs passing until I was talking to my son about events from my past, and decided to look him up. Herb and I weren’t close, as he was a couple of years older than me, but I remember him from school all the way from elementary in Marlborough, right through high school. Herb was always very kind to me and I’m sure I never heard him say a bad word about anyone. I hope the time that has passed has begun to heal you all from your loss; Herb was a very good man, and I am truly sad to hear of his passing; God bless all of you!
