Robert E. “Bob” Huber, loving husband, father and grandfather, age 89, died peacefully on June 30, 2020 of heart disease and COPD. He will be dearly missed by his wife of 62 years, Marlene; children, Kathy (Eric) Weinshel, Tom (Marlys) Huber, Sue (Jon) Fritz, and John Huber. Bob is survived by 10 grandchildren, Ben, and Sarah Weinshel, Katelyn, Michael, Nathan, Matthew (Eleanor), and Rachel Huber, Anna Fritz, Evan, and Kayli Huber.

Bob grew up in north Minneapolis, graduating from Patrick Henry High School in 1949. After proudly serving in the USMC, he returned to Minneapolis, met Marlene, and they married in 1957. Bob worked as a printing pressman at the StarTribune for 32 years. They raised their family in Brooklyn Center, where he was a Scout leader for many years, a member of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, and the Knights of Columbus. After retirement, he kept busy with woodworking projects, delivering Meals on Wheels for CEAP for over 12 years, keeping the lawn and garden green, traveling, and spending time with his children and grandchildren. He was a kind person, with a great sense of humor, who above all was devoted to his family. Special thanks to the caring staff at St. Therese Oxbow Lake.

I just can't say enough about the help we received in planning my husband's funeral at the Osseo Evans Nordby funeral home. It was a very difficult time and they were so caring, sensitive, helpful and very organized in making the funeral go smoothly. The funeral home in Osseo felt so welcoming and comfortable also. Tina was extremely helpful in guiding our family with planning the funeral and went out of her way in finding the right memorial folder for my husband. I would highly recommend them. Thank you all.
