Conrad Joseph Huber, 82, a lifetime resident of Frances, died peacefully on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, at the Willapa Harbor Hospital in South Bend. Conrad was born in Raymond, Washington, on August 6, 1930, to Joseph and Hermina (Mueller) Huber.
He is survived by a sister, Rosemary Knotek; brothers, Adolph (Geri) Huber and Fred (Dottie) Huber; a special caregiver, Louise Bale; and many nieces and nephews.
Conrad attended school in Frances and spent all of his working years as a valued employee on the Elk Prairie Dairy Family Farm.
Conrad was a member of the Holy Family Catholic Church in Frances, and the Lewis-Pacific Swiss Society. He was especially fond of his Swiss Heritage, attending all of the functions just across the road. He could be seen in his living room listening to his many Swiss records and tapes. He also enjoyed many hours riding his four-wheeler “patrolling” the Elk Prairie Road. Trips to Switzerland, Hawaii, and Disneyland were special highlights of his life. Conrad also enjoyed happy times with caring friend, Larry Hudziak. Larry’s funny cards, gifts and many day trips around the area, including a helicopter ride over Mt. Saint Helens were always topics of conversation with Conrad.
Graveside services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Monday, May 6, 2013, at the Fern Hill Cemetery in Menlo with a reception to follow at the Swiss Hall in Frances. Memorials may be made to the Lewis-Pacific Swiss Society in care of Patti Gwerder 331 Elk Prairie Road, Raymond, WA 98577 or the Holy Family Catholic Church P.O. Box 235, Pe Ell, WA 98572 Arrangements are in care of Stoller’s Mortuary in Raymond.
