Obituary for Leonard Huber

Leonard Huber went home to be with his Saviour and Lord on February 3, 2018. He was born on January 16, 1942 in Regina, SK, to Freida and Philip Huber. Len was the youngest of 4 children. They moved from Saskatchewan to the Olds area in 1944, and in 1946 moved to the family farm that he lovingly tended to for many years. Len attended the Huntcliffe school up to grade 9, Nazarene High School in Red Deer for grade 10, Didsbury high school for grade 11, and then attended Olds High School for grade 12, where he graduated. He started farming with his Dad at a young age, but took more of an active role after high school, and fully took over the farm when his parents moved to the town of Olds in 1977. Len was married to his first wife, Helen MacKay, in 1970, and they had 2 daughters, Kara Lea and Dione Jeane. They also had a son, Clayton Philip, who passed at 6 weeks of age. They enjoyed life on the farm for 23 years. He was a very successful and innovative farmer, planting and harvesting mostly barley and canola for years, and always enjoyed working the land. In 1998 Len married Carol Sather and became a Step-father to Glenn (Erin) Sather and Lorree (Ralph)Erdell. They had 19 wonderful years together, starting out on the farm. He decided to take a leap in 1991 and plant everything to timothy hay and start exporting to Japan and at one point harvested close to 6,000 acres of timothy. This was an epic adventure and Len was very blessed to be successful in this venture as well, with Carol working alongside him. In 2000 Len and Carol decided to move to Kelowna as he has always loved to be near the water. He sold the farm and started on another adventure. They ran a successful bed and breakfast and also opened a booming quilting business. This was a time of retirement and change for Len, enjoying every moment of friends and family coming to visit. They started spending the winters in Palm Springs, California in 2008 where Len enjoyed golfing and loving life with Carol. They moved back to Alberta and resided in Carstairs in 2012 to be nearer to all the kids and grandkids. All the neighborhood kids called him “Papa Len”. Len always enjoyed gardening, landscaping, remodeling houses, sports, biking, hiking, and just loving life with friends and family. His door was always open. He was a giver of his time and volunteered countless hours building the East Olds Baptist Church, and Olds Koinonia Christian School, as it was very important to him that people could worship together in a beautiful building, and also go to school and learn about God and his promises. Len is survived by his loving wife Carol; his daughters Kara Allanach; Dione Irwin (Paul Seib); his step children (that he loved like his own) Lorree (Ralph) Erdell, Glenn (Erin) Sather, his brother Gene (Irene) Huber; his sisters Pearl (Bill) Weiss, Gloria (Roy) Weiss; his grandchildren Austin Allanach (partner Kathryn MacMillan and stepdaughters Ada and Kelty MacMillan), Blake Allanach; Drew Irwin, Olivia Irwin, Avery Irwin, Autumn Seib, Pearl Seib; Georgia Sather, Rhett Sather, Gage Sather; Rachel Erdell, Eric Erdell, Rita Erdell, Sienna Erdell, Paul Erdell (Tina and their son Oliver) and many nieces and nephews that he loved dearly. He is predeceased by his Mother and Father, Philip and Freida Huber, his infant son Clayton Huber, and his brother-in-law Roy Weiss. A special thank you to the Doctors and nursing staff at the acute care ward at the Didsbury hospital for wonderful care. A celebration of life was held at the East Olds Baptist Church. Olds, Alberta. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made to the East Olds Baptist building fund.
