ALFRED LEO HUBER

ALFRED LEO HUBER - LUDLOW - Alfred Leo Huber passed over to another world on Dec. 12, 2013. He wishes to send his greetings and wishes for good health to his family and friends. Al Huber was 98 years old and a product of Brooklyn, N.Y. His parents were Otilie Laschermann Huber and William Huber. Al is with his first wife, Mary Sumner Huber, originally of Ludlow, while he awaits his second wife, Amy Henneberger Huber, to join them. Al had two wonderful women to make his life on this planet enjoyable. He leaves two daughters, A. Jane Wallace of Ludlow, and Holly Eddy of Windham, N.H.; their children, Dr. James A. Wallace of Chicago, Ill., Susan Wallace Barton of Ludlow, Kristen Eddy Campbell of Tewksbury, Mass., and Adrienne Capen of Amherst, N.H.; other family members, Dr. Douglas M. Eddy, Holly's husband, Charlotte Sumner of Ludlow, Lois Henneberger of Greencastle, Pa., John Henneberger and family of Fort Myers Beach, Fla., and Omaha, Neb.; and five great-granddaughters and two great-grandsons make up the rest of Al's family. Al had a busy and rewarding life for so many years. He went to night school for many years and received his Bachelor of Science Degree as a Master in Mechanical Engineering and a Master's Degree in Business Administration. He was employed for 44 years at Jersey City Welding (JCW) and Machine Works. Al was classified a 1A by the draft and applied for membership in the Army Specialist Corp, which fizzled. His position at JCW and the defense work they did merited 12 deferments. For over 20 years he taught Sunday school at the Presbyterian Church in Florham Park, N.J., where he served as a church elder. Upon moving to Vermont in 1980, he joined the Tyson Congregational Church, the minister of which will be asked to say a prayer at his graveside service in Ludlow. Al was a big volunteer during his lifetime. In New Jersey, he was an exempt fireman for over 13 years and corpsmen at Morristown Hospital in New Jersey. In Vermont, he served with the Vermont Girl Scout Council as a board member and on the finance committee. He served five years on the Ludlow Ambulance Squad and he calibrated instruments for hypothermia at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center's Norris Cotton Cancer Research. Al did not want any church service because it is too hard on loved ones. He will have a cremation and the ashes will be buried on his plot in Ludlow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in the name of Alfred Huber to The Vermont Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, PO Box 10832, Bedford, NH 03110-0832.
