Frank was a loyal and devoted husband, father, pop pop and friend to many. He always entertained us with all the many adventures of his life. He was one of the best storytellers. In his spare time he enjoyed growing his plants & flowers. Frank was also an avid Philly sports fan and never gave up on his teams, even in the worst of seasons. His life long favorite sport was fishing which he shared his passion for with his "fishing buddy" son, Frank Jr. He loved boating and being out on the water. His most cherished times were those spent with Connie, his wife of 55 years. They enjoyed going to the movies, their walks at Bellvue Park, their daily "line up" of evening shows and all the special dinners they had out. When asked about his secret for long happy marriage. He said "they never went to bed angry and always gave each other three kisses and said "I love you".
Frank taught his family the true meaning of the word "Family" and was an extremely thoughtful person. His favorite saying was "Don't sweat the small stuff" which he would always tell his children and grandchildren during difficult times in their life.
Frank was the son of the late, Peter and Julia (Burczyk) Hubert. He is survived by the "love of his life," his wife, Corinne Hubert (Bruno); his three children, Pamela Episcopo (fiance' - Steven Gibbins), Patricia Szabo (husband - Robert Szabo, Sr.), Frank Hubert, Jr (wife - Hayat Omar Hubert) and six grandchildren, Brandon Episcopo, Christina Szabo, Brittany Szabo, Robert Szabo, Jr., Hana Hubert and Adam Hubert. He will be dearly missed, never forgotten and always close in our hearts.
