Dennis Hubat Obituaries (1954 – 2022) – Spooner, WI
Dennis Roy Hubatch, also known as “Huby”, “Pappy” or “Uncle Dennis”, died early Monday morning January 10, 2022 at his home in Springbrook, WI. He was surrounded by his immediate family. He was 67 years old.
The youngest and last living child of Roy and Doris (Vaclavik) Hubatch, he was born on February 13, 1954, in Antigo, WI., where his mother and father were born and raised. He was predeceased by his brother, Kenneth (Kenny) Hubatch; and her sister, Janice Glover-Hubatch.
At the age of 21, he married his wife who would be Debra Ann Lester for 47 years. They were married on April 27, 1974 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Beaver Dam, WI.
Dennis and Debbie had two children, Curt (Annie) Hubatch and Beth (Josh Doble) Hubatch, also of Springbrook. Their grandchildren are Daniel, Hayden and Sophia Hubatch, and Tyler and Chandler Bauer. They also have several dear nieces, nephews and friends.
He worked as an assembler and supervisor for Mayville Metal in Mayville, WI for over 30 years. After retiring in 2003, he and Debbie moved to Springbrook to be close to their two children. There he worked in construction, building houses in the area with his brother-in-law, then ended the professional part of his life in the sporting goods department of Wal-Mart.
Dennis was also a talented carpenter, general handyman, and general handyman. He could calmly fix many things with attention to detail. He enjoyed life in the Northwoods, especially hunting and fishing with his family and friends. He also loved Harley Davidson motorcycles and riding with his wife.
Dennis was a big man with a big heart. He listened more than he spoke. His actions spoke louder than his words. He always had time to lend a hand when asked. Sometimes it seemed like he was “on call” waiting to be asked. You could count on Denis.
Family came first for Dennis. He lived within 5 miles of his children and most of Debbie’s family. He spent the last years of his life caring for Debbie’s parents in their home while she worked. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and uncle for nearly 60 years.
Services will be announced later.
