Hubert came to the United States when he was 17 years old, as a Journeyman Cabinetmaker. He worked and honed his craft his entire life, and started out in America working for a large firm in Columbus. He was drafted into the Army in the late 1950's between the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and ran the wood shop on base in El Paso. He also played for the Army soccer team. He was proud that he was selected for the All-Start team for the Army, and he played in a game against the Air Force at the Air Force Academy in Colorado.
Once discharged, he worked for another large firm in Columbus as a cabinetmaker and then decided to open his own business, Hu-Stan, Inc. Hardly a building in downtown Columbus doesn't carry his work. He built cabinets and lovingly restored antiques for St. Brendan the Navigator, St. Brigid of Kildare and St. Mary's Portsmouth. He has also built several fine homes for his family and others. He collaborated with the Red Roof Inns founder, Jim Trueman, and built furniture for the Inns and Corporate Offices. In the 1970's he built the very 1st Federal Express Drop Box and furnished many of their offices all over the country.
In 1982 he added Stang Window Co. as an adjunct to his cabinet firm and subsequently supplied the European Tilt-Turn windows to fine homes and projects in Santa Fe New Mexico, Tulsa Oklahoma, Chicago Illinois as well as the Worlds Fair in New Orleans Louisiana in 1984.
Hubert was an accomplished soccer player, golfer, bowler, pool player and tennis player and an avid card player. Golf was his favorite sport and he was privileged to play in 2 Pro-Am Tournaments for The Memorial Golf Tournament on the PGA course in Dublin, Ohio. He was also a founding member of The Country Club at Muirfield Village (TCC).
He was a lifelong member of the Germania Club and played soccer there for nearly 40 years. He joined there when he first came to the United States, and met the love of his life, Ingeborg.
A truly decent, honorable, caring and loving husband, father, opa and friend to all. He was a man who loved and lived his Catholic faith, and passed his faith on to his family. Hubert was an honorably discharged Army Veteran who would lend a hand up to anyone who crossed his path in need.
He will be celebrated, loved and missed forever.
