Robert Lee Huebel, born April 3, 1951, died at the age of 62 after a courageous battle with cancer on November 9, 2013 in Houston, Texas.

Lee was born in Columbus, Texas to John and Mary Katherine Huebel. He grew up in the small town of Lake Jackson with his older sister Katy before graduating from Brazosport High School, later obtaining a B.S. in Economics from the University of Houston and a M.S. in Community and Regional Planning from UT at Austin.

His early careers in furniture restoration and movie theater management led him to his real passion; helping others. This calling was realized in his professional life thru non-profit urban planning. Lee was an important figure to many of the residents of low income housing developments such as Twin Oaks, Independence Hall, and Roland Hilliard. He was a 19 year member of Clear Lake Presbyterian Church serving as an elder, board member of Family Promise, and several other mission committees.

Lee met the love of his life in second grade, but it took him until the age of 28 and 10 years of dating to marry Laura McDonald Huebel. They had two boys, Ross and Adam, and resided in Lake Jackson and Austin before settling in Seabrook. First and foremost, Lee was a family man who epitomized leading by example. Lee taught both his sons how to enjoy life through his constant encouragement and compassion, and he was instrumental in his son's enthusiasm for athletics and hunting. Lee had an extraordinary talent for woodworking and cooking.

Lee is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Katherine Huebel. He will be greatly missed by his wife Laura Huebel, his son and daughter-in-law, Ross and Elizabeth Huebel, of Anchorage, Alaska, his son and daughter-in-law, Adam and Danielle Huebel, of Fordham, England and his granddaughter, Madison Leigh Huebel. Lee is also survived by his father John Huebel, his sister and brother-in-law, Katy and Buzz Pruitt, as well as many beloved brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations to should be sent to Independence Hall, 6 Burress, Houston, TX, 77022 with Lee Huebel in the Memo.
