Hubert loved cheering on his favourite sport teams the Detroit Tigers and the Toronto Maple Leafs. He enjoyed travelling to Montana and could often be found as the back-seat driver. In his down time, he enjoyed woodworking or having a coffee with the boys at McDonalds. But most of all, Hubert loved his family, especially his grandchildren who he was so proud of.
