August 15, 1942 - August 16, 2021
Jupiter, Florida -
Philip Huber passed away on August 16, 2021, in Jupiter, Florida. Philip was a wonderful son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, friend, dog owner and die-hard Gator fan. Son of the late Shirley and Abe Huber, he attended Miami Beach High, the University of Florida and the New York Institute of Finance. He and his wife, Kathy, previously lived in Palm Beach for many years.
Always a talented athlete, he played football and baseball for Miami Beach High and participated in organized sports throughout his adulthood. He was a very skillful golfer and a talented horseman who enjoyed owning and riding his own Saddlebred horses. His career in finance started when he became a runner on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. By the age of 33, he became the second youngest corporate officer in the history of Francis I. duPont and Co., which later became Paine Webber. He became the regional manager and managing Vice President of Paine Webber's Miami office and, later, their Beverly Hills office. How he loved playing in those Paine Webber Pro-Am golf tournaments! He was especially proud of his participation in his dear friend NFL Hall of Famer Larry Little's Gold Coast Football Camp, which benefitted youths of underserved communities.
Philip saw to it that his entire extended family remained close. He is survived by his devoted and beloved wife, Kathy, his brother, Dr. Laurence (Carrie) Huber, his daughter, Cindy (David) Burns, his sons, Andrew (Jami) Huber, Todd (Erin) Huber, grandchildren Taylor, Jarrod and Dr. Josh (Christine) Burns, Hayley, Sophie, Frances and Spencer Huber, sister and brother-in-law Mary Ann and Geoffrey Temple, nephews Christopher Temple and Dr. Michael (Brooke) Huber, niece Hilary (Ben) Walker, several cousins, many life-long friends and esteemed colleagues. He will be sorely missed by all of us.
Donations in Philip's memory may be made to the ASPCA, Wounded Warrior Project
