Fred Elmer Hubacher

April 30, 1924 Ė April 14, 2014

Fred Elmer Hubacher, age 89, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family in Rhinelander on April 14, 2014. He was born in Waukesha on April 30, 1924, to George and Margaret Hubacher.

Fredís wife of 64 years, Joyce, preceded him in death on October 14, 2012. Fred and Joyce lived and raised their family in Waukesha and then spent their retirement years at their lakeside home in Harshaw. Fred worked for many years as a truck driver and then later at a grade school for the New Berlin School District. One of Fredís greatest passions and skills was gardening. The family always looked forward to his tomato harvest. Fredís unique quality was his ability to self-learn many artistic skills: playing guitar, oil painting, photography, woodworking and writing. Reuniting once again with his beloved wife, Joyce, was Fredís most treasured wish.

Fred is survived by one brother, John Hubacher; his children, Howie (Boo) Hubacher, Dan (Lois) Hubacher, Nancy (Nick) Diel and Bob (Therese) Hubacher; grandchildren, Tom Hubacher, Amy (Mike) Viau, Chris (Missy) Hubacher, Matt (Meggin) Hubacher, Tammy Hubacher, Brad (Stacy) Schroeder, Selena Hubacher and Raquel Hubacher; and great-grandchildren, Michael, Emily, Hannah, Noah, Vanessa, Victoria, Nathan, Benjamin and Delilah.

At Fredís request, there will be no formal funeral services.
