I’ll never understand the whole love of the Cubs thing, but glad he finally got a series title ( game 7 was called by a friend of mine). My first beer I’m pretty sure came from the keg in his basement, for that I now give thanks. Uncle Mel, you lived your life without guile or guilt,,,may that be the legacy for the Huber Nation...thanks for sharing your 89 trips around the sun....Sonny, your first nephew, Sam

Uncle Mel's love for family and friends always kept him in tune with what was going on in their lives. In my 65+ years he never once said an offensive word to me (although I probably deserved one or more). He was strongly passionate and protective regarding those things he held close to his heart, number one being his bride, followed by his children, their families, and the myriad clan of relatives scattered about. My thoughts go out to his family, which is part of my family, and to the many close friends he leaves behind. His heart and soul belonged to the King of Kings and Lord of he is able to rest in peace in His arms.

I’ll always live the memories of Uncle Mel’s love for life. A man with a great sense of humor.
