Paul Huber

February 22, 1938 ~ September 11, 2023 (age 85) 85 Years Old


Paul Huber, age 85, of Geneva, Illinois, passed away Monday, September 11, 2023, surrounded by his loving family.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Mary Lou (nee Slayne); children Kristen (Jim) Costigan of Batavia, Gregory (Colleen) Huber of LaGrange, Katie (Mike) Priess of St. Charles, and Matthew (Jenna) Huber of Batavia; his 14 grandchildren to whom he was the beloved “Papa” - Erin, Andrew, and Molly Costigan; Sarah, Benjamin, and William Huber; Addyson Priess; Collin, Emily, Julia, and Hannah Huber; and step-grandchildren Grace, Mollie, and Ellen Chambers; his brother John Huber of Goshen, Indiana; many nieces and nephews; and many other dear relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Alice (nee Polson) Huber, and his brother Alan.

Paul was born February 22, 1938, on Long Island, New York, and raised in Rockville Centre. He attended South Side High School and Farmingdale State College. 

Paul embarked on a career in sales with the Boston Gear Co., which took him and his family from New York to Kirkwood, Missouri and finally to Wheaton, Illinois, where he eventually started The Huber Sales Company in 1989.  He retired with Mary Lou to Southport, North Carolina in 2012. Paul was very proud to be in the United States Marine Corps from 1961 to 1966, and a volunteer firefighter in Rockville Centre, New York, and Southport, North Carolina.

Paul’s passion was his family, and he cherished the annual family vacations at Big Blue Lake in Michigan. Driving his speed boat while pulling his kids and their friends on water skis brought him great joy. He loved golfing with his wife, children, grandchildren, and dear friends on many golf vacations. But, most of all, Papa delighted in simply spending time with family and friends, especially during the holidays when he was surrounded by all his grandchildren.
