    Sorry so to hear this. The Hubers were our neighbors for many years on Johnson Lake, back in the 70’s-90’s. I have wonderful memories of their family. They are forefront in my prayers.

    I am so saddened by this horrific loss….I went to school with two of their boys and a daughter in law…..Sandy was our PE Swimming teacher, and Swim Team coach for the years I was involved…..may God hold the family up and show them peace and comfort that can only come from Him…..

    My thoughts and prayers are with Reece and the rest of the family. They were neighbors of mine as a teen. I remember their dogs. Always barking when someone knocked on the gate. They were great friends and neoghbors. Mrs. Huber was always there if I needed help with homework. She had a different way of explaing it that helped my umderstand the work. They will be missed very much.

    Joe was a good “kid” and hard worker.
    When they first arrived he was unused to Nebraska heat. His farmer employer, (our neighbor) was concerned that he would sunburn easily since he was of fair complexion. It took awhile to convince him of the importance of wearing head cover but he did cave in.
    😊. Rest in peace Joe & Sandy.🙏
