HUBSCHER, Dr. Frank Frederick
Frank Frederick Hubscher, B.A., B.C.L., LL.M., LL.D., devoted husband and soul-mate of 38 years to Krystyna (nee Turoczy), passed away at Laguna Niguel, California, on August 29th, 2013.
Dr. Hubscher was born in St. Polycarpe, Quebec, Canada on January 21, 1927, the youngest of nine children to the late Charles and Esther Hubscher. His education commenced in Montreal at Strathcona Academy which led him onto graduating from Sir George Williams College (B.A. '48), McGill University (B.C.L. '51) (LL.M. '53) and Universite de Paris (Sorbonne), (LL.D. '54 cum laude). As a graduate of the Institute of Air and Space Law at McGill in 1953, he was elected its President, serving two terms from 1957 to 1959.
For nearly 40 years, in addition to practicing law in Montreal, Quebec under the partnership of Lafontaine & Hubscher, he also practiced law in Ontario and had offices in Toronto and Ottawa. In 1991, he and his wife moved to southern California to enjoy the warm weather and unhurried lifestyle that it had to offer. His retirement years found him actively supporting numerous civic, political and charitable organizations.
Dr. Hubscher also leaves behind his wonderful children from a previous marriage, daughter Marla, son Jonathan and daughter-in-law Margaret (nee Isabella), as well as his three amazing grandsons, Noah, Adam and Jordan, of whom he was extremely proud. He, along with his many unique and splendid qualities, will be deeply missed by his immediate and considerable extended-family members and friends.
In tribute to his lasting memory, donations to a preferred cause or charity would be welcomed.
