John Franklin Huber

March 19, 1950 - April 27, 2023


It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of John Huber . He was an amazing man, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side on Aprl 27, 2023 at Hospice House in Kelowna BC.

John will be dearly missed by his wife, Pat, of 44 years, his children Paris, Lance and Tannis; his grandchildren Joshua, Jordan, Liam, Miya, Lyndall, Denby, Gracie, Flyn, Eparama, Afu and one great grandson Tanner. Also survived by sisters Sharon (Zolton) Fazekas, Mary (John) Keene, Judy Wilkie, sister-in-law Joyce Huber, and many nieces and nephews and their families. Further mourned by our extended family Rob and Barb (Billingsley) Kline, children Lucas Billingsley, Sydney Billingsley (children Kalhum and Zayd) and Keandra Billingsley.

He was predeceased by his parents Frank and Alma Huber, brothers George and Richard, sister Shirley Mitchner and great granddaughter Aspen Helen. Johns legacy was his passion for and dedication to his family; he treasured his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and lived for family gatherings.

Nothing brought him more pleasure than watching his family grow and succeed in their lives. He will also be remembered by friends and colleagues for his kindness, his generosity and his ability to make and maintain lifelong friendships. John lived a life of faith, and was a valued mentor and role model.

A talented athlete and he loved sports, he played with heart and played competitively. He started playing hockey in the mid 60’s in Calgary, from there he attended Lakehead University on a Hockey Scholarship; then went on to play semi-pro in the Central, International and Southern Leagues. After coming back to Canada John moved to Prince George with work and played Senior A with the Prince George Mohawks; winning the Coy Cup in 1978. In addition he was an avid golfer, played and coached softball/slopitch at various levels and looked forward to winters on the ski hill with family and friends.

We would like to thank the staff at Palliative Care and Hospice House Kelowna for their kindness and loving care making John’s end of life peaceful and comfortable.
