Robert C. Huebner
September 26, 1914 - April 27, 2013
Bob moved to Binghamton as a boy of five. With his parents from S. Dakota he arrived. Moving here little did they know what to find, but still they left Aberdeen far behind. Bob would grow up and here he's stay, where he met the woman who'd be his wife someday. Wilna was a country girl who captured his heart, soon they would wed and a family they did start. Two children, a daughter Dale and Terry a son, raising them those days wasn't easy but it was fun. Bob worked hard and walked to work back then, at a print shop, before long he supervised a few men. He rallied to get a fire station in his town and insurance company loaned them money so they looked around and found a spot where construction began. A fine station was built on that piece of land. Bob was a busy husband, father and friend, soon the school was a project he wanted to mend. He worked with others for a centralization plan, for bigger and better schools work began. The one room school houses were plenty then, but it was smarter so the project did win. Soon a building went up to be Susquehanna Valley School and with only one district of which to rule. Three new schools in total still stand today, cause they fought and fought to get this underway. He served for years on Hawleyton's Methodist Church as a member of the committee he'd do lots of research. A kindred spirit, a fine busy man, he will be missed when he leaves this land. The Robert C. Huebner we have been blessed to know, we will miss you, but we know straight to Heaven you will go.
