- Robert J. Huber, 80, died Thursday, September 21, as a result of injuries sustained in a backhoe accident. Bob was one of nine children of William R. and Evelyn (Paton) Huber. Born in Boston; he was raised in Dedham where he attended school. He was drawn to the trade school programs and entered the construction field, establishing RJ Huber Construction in 1971. In the early years, he worked to build houses; however, he found that the preconstruction phase was more interesting so he worked with forms and pouring foundations. After a short period, he decided that he would rather do preparation work and found his niche in excavation where he loved to play with “the big boy toys”. Until his death, he was a self-proclaimed workaholic.
In his younger years, Bob enjoyed waterskiing, alpine skiing, riding his Harley, and horseback riding. Bob was a lover of all things 50’s. He loved classic cars, including collecting them himself, and spent three nights a week with his wife, Carol, at Cruise nights throughout the state. While he enjoyed much of the 50’s music, he was a devoted Elvis fan and was thrilled with a family trip to Graceland a couple of years ago. Bob was always very sociable and most recently enjoyed the company of friends at the Tuesday Senior Lunches and Bible Study.
Raised Catholic, Bob attended the former St. Timothy’s Church where he was an usher and a member of the Knights of Columbus. He later worshiped at St. James Episcopal Church in Laconia, and most recently found his faith community at the Hill Village Bible Church.
Bob was an extremely kind, gentle, and caring person who always went out of his way to support others. Friends and family will also recall his joking manner and ability to make everyone smile.
He leaves his wife of 61 years, Carol (Gempka) Huber of Bristol; only daughter, Virginia “Ginger” Donaldson of Meredith; granddaughters, Aberdine Dwight (husband: Lance) of Holderness and Pauline Donaldson of Meredith, and the newest light of his life, great grandson, Lawrence Edward Dwight IV. He also leaves behind siblings: Dennis Huber of Franklin; Betsy McSweeney (husband: Bill) of Bristol; Mary Ellen Braley (husband: Ken) of Alexandria; and many loved nieces and nephews and their families.
Services - A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, September 29, 2023 at 11:00am at the Hill Village Bible Church, 36 Crescent St., Hill. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Tapply-Thompson Community Center (TTCC) 30 N. Main St., Bristol, NH, 03222
