Raised on a humble farm in Manson, Iowa, Hub proudly served his country in the Army Air Corps during WWII. After the military, he returned home and caught a train to the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, walked into the Admissions Office and told them he wanted to study there. He graduated with a degree in Commerce in 1949. While working and raising a family with his late wife Bettie, he attended night school earning a Juris Doctor degree from DePaul University. He enjoyed telling a good story, reading, playing tennis, watching Westerns, and playing bridge. Hub was an avid Sox and Notre Dame fan. Guided by an abiding faith, Hub was a kind and gentle man who will be remembered with love for his family and missed by many.
