Richard A. Huber

Jan. 1, 1961 – Dec. 19, 2021

Richard A. Huber passed away peacefully at home Sunday, Dec. 19, 2021 at the age of 60, after a short but courageous battle with cancer.  

Mr. Huber was born Jan. 1, 1961 in Indianapolis to the late Robert L. Huber and Judith A. (Ferrin) Huber.

He had a very strong faith in God and his family takes comfort in knowing that he is now at peace. He was a resident of Carmel for many, many years and graduated from Carmel High School in 1979. While at Carmel, he participated in football and track among other activities and was a member of Carmel’s first state football championship team in 1978. After high school, he attended and graduated from Wabash College in 1983 earning a degree in Economics. Shortly after his college graduation, he met and married his best friend, Jane Martin. He and Jane were married for 35 years and were proud to have raised three sons, Bradley, Mark and Kyle who will greatly miss their father.

Aside from his main passion, which was his family, he had a love for sports. Along with coaching and supporting his sons in their sporting endeavors, his passion for sports carried into the hope that many young people could benefit by participating in athletics. He was an Executive Board Member of the Carmel Dads’ Club for over a decade where he donated countless hours in supporting young men and women through sports. He cared greatly about the Carmel Dads’ Club, the young people who benefited from its work, and the people that he worked alongside.

His other passion was his work.  He was the consummate work associate. His career centered around the field of finance, which he enjoyed so much. He worked for the Eden Group from 1983-2012 mainly in senior housing management along with numerous other projects. For the last seven years he worked as the CFO for Cohoat and O’Neal Management Corporation, managing golf courses and restaurants. He had the privilege to learn from several important mentors and became one himself.

Mr. Huber had several other hobbies which included cooking for his family, going to concerts and traveling. He was also a member of Carmel United Methodist Church and Phi Delta Theta Fraternity.

Survivors include his wife, Jane; his three sons, Bradley, Mark (Darlene) and Kyle (Ashley); and brother, Mike (Michelle).
