John R. “Bubba” Huber, 56, of Cambridge passed away Monday, April 15, 2019 at his home.
Born August 17, 1962 in Baltimore, he was the son of Mary and John Huber, Jr.
He attended the local schools and graduated from Cambridge-South Dorchester High with the class of 1980. For over twenty years he worked for Air Liquide as a forklift operator. He had also worked at other jobs in the area before his failing health no longer allowed.
Bubba was always an avid sports fan. He played in local modified softball leagues for many seasons. During his younger years he coached Little League. Bubba loved watching kids play baseball & soccer, especially his nephew Nathan as well as many of the kids he fondly looked upon as his “adopted kids”. He was looking forward to the coming baseball season.
Bubba was a walking encyclopedia, he was often referred as “your phone a friend” for anything related to music, sports or entertainment. Anyone could call him and he would have the answer. He also enjoyed watching the Orioles and the Ravens. Bubba will always be remembered as a caring and gentle giant with a heart of gold and love for children.
Surviving besides his parents, are sister Sue Covey and husband Mark of Hurlock; brother Billy Huber and wife Lori of Church Creek; nieces Megan Insley, Lauren Covey and nephew Nathan Huber and several aunts, uncle & cousins.
