Robert L. Huber, 82, of Carmel, passed away peacefully on Thursday, Nov. 18, 2020.
He was born June 11, 1938 in Clarksville, Ind. to the late Lewis F Huber and Oma (Brown) Huber.
Mr. Huber moved to Carmel in 1947 and graduated from Carmel High School in 1956. In Carmel, he participated in basketball and track where he set the country record in the mile. More importantly, while there he met his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Judith Ann Ferrin. Mr. Huber and Judy were married in 1958 and shared 62 wonderful years together. In 1970 they moved their family to a farm in Westfield so he could pursue his passion for farming. If you only met Mr. Huber for a few minutes, you knew that he was proud of being a farmer. In 2000 he sold the farm, retired, and moved back to Carmel.
Mr. Huber’s passion for farming was also displayed by the numerous organizations he was involved with and supported, including President of the Hamilton County Extension Board, Indiana Pork Producers President, Honorary Commissioner of Agriculture appointed by Lieutenant Governor John Mutz, Indiana Future Farmers of America Foundation Board, President of the Hamilton County Farm Bureau Co-op Board of Directors and Member of the Hamilton County 4-H Foundations. His involvement and community support outside of farming included: President of the Carmel United Methodist Church Board of Trustees, Member of the Carmel Masonic Lodge, Indianapolis Scottish Rite, Indianapolis Murat Shrine, along with a member of the Carmel Clay Dads Club and Booster Club.
Survivors include his wife Judy; sons, Rich (Jane) and Mike (Michelle); six grandsons, Brad, Mark (Darlene), Matt (Liz), Grant, Kyle (Ashley) and Ryan, who will sorely miss spending time with their Pepaw.
