Josef Huber

HUBER, JOSEF

 

Joe passed away peacefully

on August 24, 2012 at the

age of 87, with his family

by his side. He was

predeceased by his loving

wife, Anna; his eldest

daughter, Elsie McKernan;

his brother, Edmund Huber; and his brother-in-law, Joe Czerwinski. He will be dearly missed by the members of his family, all of whom he loved

so much. Joe is survived by his two daughters, Ingrid (Gene) Sivorot, and Hilde (Terry) Schneider, and his son Joe

(Kirsten) Huber, all of Kelowna; 13 grandchildren and

5 great grandchildren; his sister, Emma Czerwinski; and

his sisters-in-law, Liz (Don) Cameron and Ann Huber. 

Joe was born of German descent in Romania in 1925. 

He immigrated to Regina with his wife and young daughter in 1950.  He was a skilled cabinet maker who eventually moved his family to the Okanagan. He began a new career in the motel business in Penticton and then Kelowna, very quickly becoming a successful hotelier.  Although he

attempted to retire at a young age, his drive to create

and build pulled him back into business. Together with members of his family, he developed and built hotels for many more years. In addition, he dedicated himself to

numerous building projects for the Diocese of Nelson,

leaving his imprint in many communities in the Southern

Interior.  He will be remembered as a great businessman,

a loving family man, and a strong person of faith. 

A Prayer Service will be held on Wednesday, August 29th at 7:30 pm.  Mass of Christian Burial will be held on

Thursday, August 30th at 11:00 am. Both services will

be held at Immaculate Conception Church,

839 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC. As an expression

of sympathy, those who wish to may make a donation to

either the Alzheimer Society of BC, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC, in the name of Josef Huber.
