Fred K Hubert passed away in Salt Lake City, on November 26th, 2022. Born April 5th, 1930 to father, Kurt Karl Hubert, and mother, Emilie Martha Schmidt-Hubert. Fred grew up in a German-American household, where piano and song often filled the air.

Fred met his teenage sweetheart turned lifelong partner, Josephina (Josie) Vigil-Hubert, at a dance in Salt Lake City—after which they were inseparable. Fred and Josie married in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 18th, 1950, and thereafter moved into what became their family home in Cottonwood Heights, Utah.

The newlyweds went on to have five children: Jody, Rowland, Whitney, Sidney, and Kurt. The Hubert family spent their growing years enjoying family vacations, which often took the form of road trips across the western U.S., celebrating their cultures through the art of cooking traditional German and Mexican dishes, and relaxing to the tune of Fred’s classical piano playing whirling through the house.

Fred is survived by three of his children, Jody, Whitney, and Kurt, five grandchildren, Shane, Tyler, Shannon, Alexis, and Remington, and eight great-grandchildren—who all came to know him as “Opa Fred” and his wife as “Oma Juicy”. Fred is preceded in death by his wife, Josie, daughter, Sidney, and son, Roland.

Fred will be buried at the Salt Lake City Cemetery beside his life-long partner, Josie, and near his two late children, Sidney and Rowland.
