Hubert S. Yenter, Wittenberg, passed away early Sunday morning, December 22, 2013 at Homme Home of Wittenberg under Aspirus Hospice Care. He was born on March 26, 1931 in the Town of New Hope, Portage County, son of the late Andrew and Pearl (Koziczkowski) Yenter.
Hubert was a United States Army Veteran serving from 1952 to 1954. He served his country in the Western Air Defense in Communications at Fort Lewis near Tacoma, WA during the Korean War.
On August 27, 1955, Hubert was united in marriage to Theresa Wisinski at St. Peter's Catholic Church, Stevens Point.

Hubert made his career as a heavy equipment operator in the Milwaukee area for 35 years until his retirement in 1993, a career that he was very proud of. He was a lifetime member of Operating Engineers Local 139. Hubert was especially proud of the large family he came from. Music was an important part of family life that was passed down to him.
